Department of Chemistry prepares SPECIALISTS in Chemistry

The term of study: 5 years, full-time.

Specializations:; Analytical Chemistry; Bioorganic Chemistry; Biochemical Technology; Colloid Chemistry; Cryochemistry; Medical Chemistry; Inorganic Chemistry; Petrochemistry; Organic Chemistry; Radiochemistry; Physical Chemistry; Chemical Kinetics and Catalysis; Chemical Technology; Chemical Enzymology; Chemical Material Science; Polymer Chemistry; Chemistry of Organoelement Compounds

During the 7 semesters of their study, students attend to lectures and conduct practical laboratory work on fundamental disciplines. Then they choose their specialization. After finishing  courses in inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, and physical chemistry a term paper is prepared.

Besides the basis curricula there are 5 special groups on: physical (theoretical) chemistry, radiochemistry and radioecology, chemistry of polymers, high temperature superconductors and computational methods in chemistry. In these groups students are engaged under special curricula, in which much more time is devoted to quantum chemistry, kinetics and catalysis, methods of investigation and analysis of polymers and other disciplines.
