Degree in Chemistry

240 credits - Faculty of Science

Chemistry is the science that studies the properties and composition of substances, as well as the transformation processes matter undergoes that synthesis, production or control of tall consumer, industrial, food and pharmaceutical products are based on. In addition, it underlies all human processes that have or may have an impact on the environment and the sustainability of resources.

The core aim of this programme is to attain suitable scientific training in the core aspects of chemistry that include all necessary skills to achieve a solid, balanced theoretical and practical knowledge base (the programme contents include 22.5% for practical credits). The degree provides core specific skills linked to: i) the application of chemical knowledge to produce and defend arguments and solve problems in the area of chemistry; ii) the ability to safely plan, design and undertake chemical experiments alongside the interpretation of experiment data; iii) the ability to collect and interpret relevant data that enable opinions to be issued on important social, scientific or ethical issues, and iv) transmitting information, ideas, problems and solutions in the area of chemistry to a specialised and more general audience, as well as cross-cutting skills including understanding, speaking and writing in English.
