Chemistry studies the properties and transformations of matter. It is often termed the "Core Subject" of Science because all other natural sciences entail an understanding of the world at the atomic and molecular levels.
Molecular Biology, Nanotechnology, and Environmental Science are just a few representative examples of how Chemistry spans across disciplines. Students can find in Chemistry a solid background for modern science, in which old boundaries are quickly losing significance.
The objective of the Chemistry programme from Instituto Superior Técnico is to provide the 3 rd cycle students with solid and transdisciplinary modern training and prepare them for leadership roles in Chemistry by developing their ability to plan and carry out R&D projects in an independent manner.
Education and Research, Industry and Service Careers, with emphasis on independent and leadership activities in the areas of Fine Chemicals, Pharmaceutical and Cosmetics Industries, Agrochemical and Food Industries, Environmental Technology, Chemical Toxicology, Materials, and emerging interface areas.
