Course overview

This course offers a solid grounding in mathematics, physics and biology – necessary areas of knowledge for the study of chemistry – and a strong foundation in all chemistry disciplines: analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, organic chemistry, general and inorganic chemistry, and industrial chemistry. Theory lessons are complemented by a high number of practical course hours in the laboratory, an essential component for the acquisition of skills necessary in a chemist. The end-of-course internship offers the chance to gain experience within companies and local businesses, or to remain in the University and do further research in topics that particularly interest you. This course allows you to apply for positions with companies, analysis and quality control laboratories, and public authorities, or to continue your studies with a Master’s degree course.
