About

The main objective of the Chemistry programme at ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology is to provide students with comprehensive training in all those aspects of chemistry which will enable them to work independently in this field.

Overview

The Chemistry programme at ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology qualifies its graduates to assume responsible positions in academia, industry and public services.

Subject-​specific knowledge and understanding

Graduates with a Master’s degree in Chemistry

  • possess in-​depth knowledge of the various concepts, methods and goals of scientific research in chemistry and bordering areas of biology and materials science;
  • possess in-​depth knowledge of the methods and principles of analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry and related areas;
  • possess in-​depth knowledge of chemical synthesis methods and strategies;
  • possess in-​depth knowledge of the most modern physical and analytical techniques in chemistry;
  • are familiar with safety and environmental aspects and are able to implement approaches to them;
  • are familiar with interdisciplinary approaches and able to deploy them in a targeted manner;
  • are able to work independently, in a structured manner and according to scientific standards.

Skills

a. Analytical skills

Graduates with a Master’s degree in Chemistry are able to

  • recognise, comprehensively analyse, and precisely and understandably document scientific and practical problems in the area of chemical research and development;
  • statistically analyse, interpret and represent scientific data in a correct manner;
  • understand the scientific literature, familiarise themselves with the latest developments, and critically evaluate the latter.

b. Development skills

Graduates with a Master's degree in Chemistry are able to

  • formulate a hypothesis on the basis of their scientific understanding and an analysis of current data, and to propose and develop methods for experimental testing of this hypothesis;
  • evaluate a practical problem in the area of chemical engineering research and development, to develop approaches for addressing it, and to implement these approaches;
  • recognise and build upon important research developments in chemical research.

Personal and social competences

Graduates with a Master’s degree in Chemistry are able to

  • clearly and precisely present and describe scientific data orally and in writing for both a specialist and a lay audience;
  • collaborate with specialists from their own and from neighbouring disciplines in an open and constructive manner;
  • recognise important environmental protection aspects and the social relevance and ethical dimensions of their activities, and act with consequent responsibility and care.
