Organic chemistry is everywhere in today’s world. Mastering organic chemistry is crucial for the design of a wide range of everyday products, novel products and processes. Design of materials with tailor-made properties requires an enhanced understanding of their synthesis, physico-chemical characteristics, and characterization and structure-property relationships at the molecular level.

The MSc in Applied Organic Chemistry Program provides a broad background in organic chemistry both at theoretical and experimental level. This is accomplished via courses/practical classes covering different areas related to organic chemistry. An historic change was made on October 24, 2009, when two courses of the program were offered on-line, enabling the busy postgraduate students to access the lessons from home. The department envisages offering this program via dual mode and more courses will be offered on-line in the future.
