The objective of the Research Chemists programme is to provide students with solid theoretical and practical knowledge of chemistry and to promote their skills in work as independent and innovative researchers. The most profound feature of the programme is the integration of research work into an essential part of the studies. The students will join a research group in the course of their studies and carry out assigned research projects as active members of the group. During the research projects, the students will be familiarised with analytical problem-solving and working with up-to-date research methods.
Career or after graduation opportunities
The programme has been designed to enhance the graduate's career prospects in the industrial and academic job market. More than half of the graduates continue their studies in graduate programmes in Finland or abroad.
