Where Chemistry, Physics and Biology meet

Many rapidly developing research areas, such as physical chemistry, biophysics, biochemistry, and nanotechnology, fall somewhere between the classical subjects of chemistry, physics, and biology. This is why today more and more specialists with solid basic training in several sciences are in demand.


The Master’s degree programme is the key to specialisation. Subjects are chosen to adequately supplement the main focus areas of the second and third years of the Bachelor’s programme. The programme concludes with a Master’s thesis on a current research subject.

  • Combination of subjects (with emphasis on focus areas selected in the second and third years of the Bachelor’s programme)
