8. MASTER’S DEGREE PROGRAM IN “CHEMISTRY – PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY”

 

From the 2016-2017 academic year, the Department of Chemistry, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens will offer the Master’s Degree Program, according to the Law 3685/2008 (FEK 148).

The administration of the Program will be carried out by the Chemistry Department of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

 

 Objective-Purpose

The objective of Master’s Degree Program in “Chemistry-Physical Chemistry ” is the high level experimental and theoretical basic research in the science of Chemistry and Physical Chemistry and its application in the cutting edge area of computing applications in Chemical Technology-Industry. Physical Chemistry studies the properties of matter both macroscopically and at the molecular level and reproduces, through physical theories, the behavior of chemical compounds. In addition to the experimental study of the spectroscopic, thermodynamic and kinetic properties of reactive chemical systems, natural theories are developed to interpret microscopic and macroscopic behavior of matter. In addition, the development of computers has made it possible to predict physicochemical properties and processes in industrial applications through the computational techniques and methods of molecular simulations of chemical systems. Simulations, as computer experiments, can be performed at major Hyper-Computing Centers in the Country, the European Union, as well as other countries such as the USA.

Program goals:

a) The transfer of knowledge from basic research to both experimental and theoretical applications. In particular, it is of interest to develop computing techniques and to apply their use in Industry (Design and Optimization of Chemical Derivatives).

b) Collaboration with researchers in areas where Chemistry is applied, such as Biochemistry, Biology, Pharmacology, Mechanics, etc. with the aim of benefiting synergy in the development of the respective sectors of the National Economy.

The program aims to:

a) Use and develop techniques (Thermodynamic, Spectroscopic) of experimental study of chemical systems as well as theoretical and computational methods for the interpretation of the behavior of matter, with emphasis on Chemical applications in general,

b) Train new researchers – executives able to design the molecular simulation of physicochemical properties and processes, using computers, which are useful in the development of industrial products.

 

Master’s Degree

The Postgraduate Studies Program awards Master’s Degrees in “Chemistry – Physical Chemistry”. The Degree is awarded by the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.

 

Bachelor’s Degrees Accepted

Graduates of relevant University and Technological Educational Institute Departments in Greece and of recognized Institutions abroad are accepted in the Postgraduate Program.
Students will be selected according to Article 4 of the Law 3685/08.

Candidates will be evaluated and selected, as directed in paragraph 1a of Article 4 of the Law 3685/08.

 

Duration

The duration of the program leading to the conferment of the Master’s Degree is four (4) academic semesters.

 

Curriculum

The program combines postgraduate courses and practical experience in both basic and laboratory research. The courses, didactic and research activity, workshops and any other type of educational and research activities for the award of the Master’s Degree are as follows:

For the award of the Master’s Degree, compulsory attendance and successful examination is required in 3 theoretical – laboratory courses of the first semester and 3 theoretical – laboratory courses of the 2nd semester. In the third semester of study, training in the Research Methodology & Laboratory Practice in the field of Physical Chemistry is carried out, as well as collection of bibliographic data regarding the research field of diploma thesis and is credited with 30 ECTS. The diploma thesis is carried out in the 4th semester of studies and is credited with 30 ECTS. The sum of the ECTS required for the award of the Master they amount to one hundred and twenty (120).
