The proximity of the large chemical industry and the Port of Antwerp creates perfect circumstances to organise an internationally oriented Master programme at the University of Antwerp. Professors and guest speakers from industry communicate knowledge and experience from their own daily practice in business and research. This will give you direct insight in how chemistry is interwoven with different economic sectors in our society and what your role in this can be.
In addition you will have the opportunity to do an internship to strengthen the connection between your academic education and your future professional life.
Through the wide range of elective courses you can focus your educational programme on one of the subdisciplines of Chemistry. Your Master thesis enhances your analytical and processing skills through exposure to high-level research environments.
Highlights of this Master programme:
- You compose your programme based on your interests.
- Courses take place in small groups.
