About

This study programme Chemistry, Technology and Materials at the University of Chemistry and Technology Prague is designed as a follow-up master programme (aiming at a master degree with the Czech title Ing., which is equivalent to the title MSc.) continuing the education of graduates with bachelor degree (Bc.) from the bachelor programme “Chemistry and Technology“ obtained at the UCT Prague or from an equivalent bachelor programme at a university or comparable institution abroad. 

The study programme CTM is taught in English (requiring English language skills at least at the B2 level) and is designed for students that cannot or do not want to enter a Czech study programme.

Specialization - Chemistry and Chemical Technology

In addition to this common ground of the programme as a whole, in the specialization CCT the students focus on organic synthesis, retrosynthesis, process design, molecular spectroscopy and several more specialized topics (catalysis, transition metals in organic synthesis etc.) The specialization CCT within this programme can be chosen by students as part of the Master Double Degree in Applied Chemistry according to an bilateral agreement between the UCT Prague, Czech Republic and the University of Burgundy in Dijon, France. This double degree requires one year abroad and one year at the home university.

Careers

Students graduating from the study programme “Chemistry, Technology and Materials“ (CTM) with either of the two specializations, viz. “Chemistry and Chemical Technology“ (CCT) or “Materials Chemistry and Technology“ are well prepared for qualified positions in the chemical industry and all types of materials-oriented industries. 

The Czech title Ing. (which is is equivalent to the title MSc.) is the most acknowledged title for highly qualified work in production plants, especially as technologists and production managers, as well as in applied research and development (R&D) and supervising functions in quality control (QC). 

Due to the solid and sufficiently general foundation in chemistry, technology and materials the graduates of this programme are well prepared to enter into industries that are close to, but not necessarily identical with, their specialization. Of course, an added value of this English programme is the fact that the graduates are well prepared to go abroad and to find employment in a highly competitive and dynamic European or worldwide market environment.

It goes without saying that graduates of this English programme are also optimally prepared for Ph.D. studies and subsequent academic careerd in Chemistry, Materials Science and related fields anywhere in Europe or in other regions of the English-speaking world.

Specialization - Materials Chemistry and Technology

In the specialization MCT the students obtain a thorough common basis in chemistry and physics of solids, microstructure-property relations, crystal chemistry, spectroscopic and microscopic characterization of materials and mechanics of materials and can simultaneously focus more specifically on the material class of their choice (metals, polymers, glass or ceramics).
