Master programme Chemistry

Content and focus of the degree programme:

The master’s programme in Chemistry aims at deepening the students’ knowledge in the field of chemistry. This is to allow academic examination of the subjects and to enable the students to work autonomously on chemistry questions. The programme teaches knowledge about the principles in analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, and methods and strategies in synthesis chemistry and in contemporary physical and analytical techniques are learnt. The degree programme leads to a professional degree qualifying graduates for a future job. Graduates will be able to develop new synthetic methods, to apply theoretical models and to plan and carry out experiments. The imparting of knowledge in the fields of assessment of risk results and problem resolution for complex questions is included in the curriculum. Knowledge about safety and environmental aspects, soft skills and skills for interdisciplinary research questions are also taught. Occupational fields are e.g. in research and analysis, management and quality control. The medium of instruction is English and German.

Definition of the field of studies

The discipline Chemistry deals with the three sub-areas of chemistry, i.e. biological chemistry, material chemistry and computer-aided chemistry. The discipline covers the principles, laws, techniques and methods of chemistry.


The examination subjects in the master’s programme “Chemistry” include inorganic and organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical and theoretical chemistry, environmental chemistry and technical chemistry. The elective course catalogues include laboratory courses, chemistry, electives in chemistry and soft skills. The elective subjects that can be chosen freely can be chosen from the whole range of courses of all Austrian universities; subjects such as mathematics, nomenclature of chemical compounds, introduction to technological impact assessment or women and gender research, however, are recommended. A few supplementary subjects are also required. A study period abroad is supported. To complete the programme a master’s thesis must be written, which should be thematically oriented on the compulsory subjects.
