Course Objectives

The degree programme in Chemistry is specifically designed to equip graduates with the ideal competences and knowledge needed to pursue a career in the field of chemical research.

Professional occupations open to graduates include:

  • the application of chemical procedures and protocols
  • the development and characterisation of new products and materials
  • experimentation with new technologies
  • the production, on the basis of product specifications, of chemical analyses and quality controls that require a good command of chemical and instrumental techniques
  • the subsequent drafting of reports in relation to the analysis results
  • the tests and laboratory trials involved in the development of new products.

The degree programme in Chemistry aims to prepare students either to pursue further study or to immediately enter professional roles in the workplace.

The curriculum covers the experimental techniques required for chemical synthesis, the evaluation of the chemical and physico-chemical properties of substances, calculation tools and analysis methods.

The curriculum is designed to provide graduates with:

  • sufficient knowledge of the various fields of chemistry, covering basic, theoretic, experimental and practical aspects, and a firm grounding in the fields of mathematics and physics
  • good command of the tools used for specific chemical knowledge and their relationship with other scientific and technical fields of study
  • a firm grasp of experimental laboratory methods
  • the comprehensive chemical knowledge required to assume positions that require familiarity with scientific methodology
  • the capacity to apply innovative methods and techniques and make use of complex equipment
  • the ability to adapt to changes in the field, collaborate with associated professions, and to pursue further study through the master degree programme.

Career and Employment

Chemistry graduates can undertake professional opportunities through initiatives organised by the Council of Didactic Coordination and surveys carried out by bodies in the sector.

On the strength of their training, graduates are equipped to engage in professional control and analysis procedures, and to pursue public and private research laboratory work in the following fields, applying the specific investigative methods they have developed: the synthesis and characterisation of new products and materials, health, food, and the cosmetic sector.

They can enter roles in public and private research authorities, analysis, control and quality certification laboratories, and all industries and working environments that require basic chemical training.

Upon successful completion of the State Examination, it is then possible for graduates to register with the National Register of Chemists as Junior Chemists.
