Modules focus on polymers and inorganic materials including their characterization by spectroscopic and imaging techniques and the tailoring of their surfaces for bioanalytic and biomedical applications. At the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland, we offer a master degree in Chemistry. 

Two further modules emphasize on analytical techniques including advanced mass-spectroscopy, NMR spectroscopy and protein analytics. Students are also taught in synthetic organic and medicinal chemistry and the chemistry on energy systems and storage. In all courses the importance of sustainability and safety in chemical production processes is addressed.

Career Development

  • Students finish their studies with an eight months long Master’s thesis. The thesis is commonly carried out in cooperation with a company. 
  • Alumni of the Master’s studies have a sound theoretical and practical training enabling to assume responsibility in research and development or production in the chemical industry.
