Overview

Most chemical research involves the synthesis and characterisation of new molecules. Basically, a trial and error approach. This specialisation goes one step further: it aims at fundamentally unraveling the properties of molecules and materials. The students from this specialisation try to find answers by developing theory and applying physical set-ups for advanced spectroscopic experiments, involving high magnetic fields, free-electron lasers, scanning probe microscopes, nuclear magnetic resonance, etc…

Master’s in Physical Chemistry: something for you?

- Radboud University hosts a large number of advanced spectroscopic facilities.
- You’ll get the chance to work with scientific equipment that is unique in Europe and sometimes even cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
- All Chemistry and Materials Science oriented Physics departments are combined in the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM). Therefore, collaborating is second nature to us.
- Multiple collaborations with companies ranging from multinationals (Nouryon, DSM, Shell, Teijin, Unilever) to start-ups, where Master’s students can perform internships.
- You’ll meet a diverse group of researchers in a personal setting: a good starting point for your future network.
- This Master’s programme is rated the best in its field (Keuzegids Master’s 2019).
- You can now study the new synergy track Computational and Data Science.
