Laboratory Experiments to Develop Critical Thinking

Substantial time devoted to seminars and laboratory experiments

Laboratory Experiments to Develop Critical Thinking
  Seminars and laboratory experiments account for a large portion of the curriculum. Laboratory classes are from 13:00 to 17:00 or 18:00. Students have a laboratory class once a week in the autumn semester in the first year, twice a week in the second year, and three times a week in the third year.

Small classes

  For specialized courses in the first year, students are divided into two groups of about 50. For seminar courses, one member of the teaching staff is responsible for 20 to 25 students. Students belong to laboratories for undergraduate thesis research in their final year, with five or six assigned per member of the teaching staff.

“Topics in Chemistry” keeps students abreast of cutting-edge research

  “Topics in Chemistry”is an elective for fourth-year students. Distinguished scientists and engineers working at the front line of research in private companies or public institutions lecture on the latest topics.

Four research fields

  Laboratories are categorized into four groups: Physical Chemistry (Physical Chemistry, Polymer Chemistry), Organic Chemistry (Structural Organic Chemistry, Bioorganic Chemistry), Inorganic Chemistry (Inorganic Chemistry, Coordination Chemistry), and Environmental Chemistry and Geochemistry (Analytical Chemistry, Geochemistry).
