Department of Chemistry

The UoI Department of Chemistry aspires to be involved in and contribute to developments in the field of Chemistry. Therefore, the Department has set three essential and feasible targets: to recruit distinguished research and teaching staff; to expand its research activity; and to constantly improve its Study Programme. We believe that the students of an academic Department constitute the foundations of its existence and development, and its graduates the driving force of society; this is why the UoI Department of Chemistry, through its Study Programme and its numerous scientific activities, principally seeks to provide its students the essential knowledge that will help them hold important and crucial research or academic positions in the wider field of Chemistry.

The Department’s Course of Study leads to a unified Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry.

Compulsory minimum period of study: eight (8) semesters.

Postgraduate Study

The UoI Department of Chemistry has been offering a reformed Postgraduate Course in Chemistry since the 2014-2015 academic year, under the provisions of this decision and the provisions of Law 3685/2008 (OGG 148, issue A), as amended and in force.

The Postgraduate Course focuses on promoting the science of Chemistry (teaching and research). The aim of this Postgraduate Course is to train highly-educated Graduate Chemists, who, through research, will foster the science of chemistry and rapidly developing technology, and will be capable of staffing strategic sectors in Public Administration, Universities and Research Institutes, and Industry, to meet the country’s developmental needs and to upgrade studies in different fields of Chemistry.

Applicants for this Course must be graduates of a Greek or accredited foreign Department of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Biology, Biochemistry, Environment, Physics, Geoponics, Pharmaceutics and Medicine, or TEI graduates of a relevant subject.
