Master of Chemistry

Where industry and research meet

Your programme

The Master of Chemistry focuses on research and development.

The proximity of the large chemical industry and the Port of Antwerp creates perfect circumstances to organise an internationally oriented Master programme. 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.
  • Taught by specialists from industry.
  • A combination of excellent education and high-level research.

Your future

With Belgium as an important worldwide hub of chemical industry, a Master of Chemistry is a much sought-after asset and most graduates quickly find an interesting job in this sector.

But you have many other options. The university may be the ideal location to start your career with a PhD in one of our research groups. In governmental bodies you may influence chemistry related legislation like food or water standards or air quality monitoring.
