Master's Programme in Organizing Molecular Matter

The purpose of the programme is to give you a broad and fundamental knowledge in the field of physical chemistry, with an emphasis on the fields of surface and colloid chemistry, nanochemistry, and soft condensed matter. Students develop advanced laboratory skills, profound theoretical comprehension of fundamental mechanisms and good understanding of practical applications. Special emphasis is given to an unbroken line of understanding, from quantum mechanical description of atoms and molecules to complex supramolecular structures, as well as their industrial and biological applications.

Master's Programme in Protein Science

Understanding proteins is central to understanding and solving both medical and biotechnological problems on the molecular level. This programme explores the molecular structures and functional mechanisms of a large number of proteins. Graduates from the programme will master methods of cloning, expression and purification of proteins, and a number of specialised techniques for analysing proteins. They will also be able to use and understand primary scientific publications, and have the ability to independently plan, carry out and critically evaluate experiments.

Compulsory Courses (number of ECTS credits within parenthesis)
KEMM13 Biochemistry – Advanced Course (15), KEMM15 Structural Bioinformatics (15), Master’s degree project(s) comprising a total of 60 credits (minimum 30 credits each). For more information, see Programme Fact Sheet (below).
