Scientific research and education in the field of molecular chemistry are of the utmost importance to society and industry. This broad discipline aspires to understand and influence chemical and physical properties at the molecular level. Society's needs in terms of diagnostics, communication, energy, new materials and healthcare require the development of molecules with dedicated, well-controlled properties. To this end, the elegance of biological systems can function as an example for the creation of man-made products. Studying Molecular Design, Synthesis and Catalysis at the University of Amsterdam
Molecular Design, Synthesis and Catalysis is a track of the Master's programme in Chemistry. It covers the broad area of organometallic, organic and bio-organic chemistry that forms the foundation for a fundamental understanding of the relationship between molecular structure and macroscopic behaviour. All other disciplines of chemistry as well as certain areas of biology and physics are based on this relationship. The programme is designed to give students the knowledge that will enable them to move from understanding these chemical and physical processes to being able to predict and design them. Amsterdam Graduate School of Science (AGSS)
The University of Amsterdam (UvA) and the VU University Amsterdam (VU) have joined forces in the Amsterdam Graduate School of Science (AGSS). Both universities have excellent international reputations, with several research groups playing leading roles in various fields of science. Most of the Master's tracks in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics are offered within the cooperation of the AGSS. Students enrolled in the Amsterdam Graduate School of Science, enjoy the expertise and facilities of two universities, as well as benefiting from their existing networks.
Applicants must have a Bachelor's degree in chemistry or in another science discipline directly related to molecular design, synthesis and catalysis.
