We owe a great part of our quality of life to the development of sciences, chemistry in particular. Its influence can be found in numerous different branches, such as medicine, biology, agriculture, etc. The chemical impact is also omnipresent in the industrial world. You can learn all about this at Ghent University's Chemistry ((Bio)Organic and Polymer Chemistry).


Key facts

Ghent University's Chemistry ((Bio)Organic and Polymer Chemistry) focuses on molecules: how to synthesize and understand them, how to adapt them and use them for biological applications, and how to bring them together to form macromolecular entities and polymers. We start from experimental and analytical organic chemistry (carbon chemistry), with attention to the latest developments and techniques, from modified DNA to renewable or "smart" plastic materials. (Bio) Organic and polymer chemistry prepares you for a career as a chemist in the sector of fine chemicals, in pharma and life science or in the polymer industry.

Labour Market

It is a fact that chemistry is involved in several industrial branches, important for the economy and employment, such as chemical industry, pharmaceutical industry, agriculture … Thanks to the broadness of the scientific programme, master graduates in chemistry are fit to apply for jobs in different sectors of industry and their possibilities on the job market are very diverse. Masters in chemistry can for instance be involved in scientific research, product development, quality control … or they can take on managerial functions, and this in companies as well as in government institutions.
