Summer courses

The Department of Chemistry offers two summer courses during the first part of the summer with English as the language of instruction.

The eligibility and selection rules are the same as for other courses. The summer courses are applied for via

Read more about the content of the courses below:

Are you curious about the latest techniques in biochemistry, genetic engineering and molecular biology? Do you want to know more about the gene editing process and how this technology is used in daily life? Gain knowledge to be able to discuss how genetic engineering has affected our lifestyle.

The general aim of the course is to enable students to acquire an understanding in biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, and gene editing as well as the latest techniques applied within these fields. During the course, the gene editing process and how the genome sequence works in different organisms will be discussed. After completing the course, students will have acquired knowledge of how these techniques are used in daily life, for example in areas such as food, medicine, diet, and the environment.

The course runs at full speed.

Which kind of contact lenses are you wearing (hard or soft)? Did you have bracelets on your teeth when you were younger and wonder what kind of metal they were? This course provides the foundation of biomaterials knowledge, where you can find answers to these questions and much more.

Here you can expand your understanding of biomaterials, biomedical engineering, tissue engineering and drug delivery in a simple and understandable approach. We will cover basic materials science background, medical/clinical concerns, and coverage of biomaterials past, present, and future. Further, we will introduce techniques associated with translating research from the lab to clinical applications.

At the end of the course, all students can identify and understand the terms used mainly in biomaterials literature, the basic properties of various biomaterials, and their advantages, limitations and applications in medicine.

This course is ideal for an entry-level with basic knowledge of chemistry and biology.

The course runs at full speed on distance.
