Inorganic Chemistry

Prospects of graduates

The graduates of the study programme Inorganic Chemistry are able to work independently and creatively scientifically. They are proficient in the scientific methods of research on inorganic, bioinorganic compounds and materials with a focus on progressive research methods in inorganic chemistry (nanomaterials, molecular magnets, microporous matrices, MOFs, biologically active substances, etc.). Graduates are able to find prospective directions for the development of the scientific field, formulate a scientific problem, set up a research project, select appropriate experimental techniques to solve a given scientific problem and lead a research team. Graduates of doctoral studies will find employment in research institutions as well as in educational institutions at home and abroad.
