It will give in-depth knowledge of analytical chemistry with an emphasis on biological applications. Emphasis is placed on the ability to work independently on the projects, so that the graduates can take on responsible tasks in the chemical / pharmaceutical / biotechnology environment. In addition, the master degree qualifies graduates for a subsequent conferral of a doctorate.
Besides deepening the knowledge of inorganic, organic and physico-chemical basics, the curriculum includes analytics, spectroscopy and bio-chemistry as specific topics.
