Organic Chemistry

General information

The goal of the study programme is to prepare specialists who are able to demonstrate extensive general knowledge in all areas of chemistry as well as deep insight into the area of organic chemistry. Active acquisition of theoretical knowledge and mastering practical skills enable them to independently solve specific problems.

Students gain knowledge for understanding the structure of organic molecules and their stereochemistry, their reactivity and mechanisms of their chemical transformations. They get familiar with recent as well as classical methods of organic synthesis and ways of determining the structure and composition of organic compounds, mainly by means of physicochemical methods, by using modern separation techniques and methods for determination and exploration of reaction mechanism.

Students become familiar with the utilisation of basic databases of chemical information sources, methods of molecular modelling as well as laboratory practice aimed at mastering modern laboratory techniques applied in organic synthesis and data measuring and processing.

Graduates are very well prepared, both theoretically and practically, to fulfil demanding tasks in chemical research and practice.

A successful graduate is able to

  • master theoretical foundations of all chemistry disciplines (inorganic, organic, physical, analytical chemistry, biochemistry, nuclear chemistry, environmental chemistry)
  • use a variety of instrumental and physicochemical methods and interpret the results
  • work with chemical information sources and chemical literature to get relevant data
  • safely handle the chemical compounds and explain and supervise their usage among chemists and non-chemists
  • write reports on the results of her/his work and present the results at scientific meetings
  • utilise her/his specialization which was bulilt by attending specialized lectures in a specific area
  • design and perform chemical experiments in organic synthesis
  • analyze experimental results and adjust the experimental set-up accordingly
  • identify and solve chemical problems in various areas of science and production
  • aware of environmental aspects of chemical research and production
  • understand and follow ethical guidelines of scientific research

Graduate employment

Graduates can utilise their knowledge of organic chemistry and find employment in chemical industry, pharmaceutical, environmental and food industry, health care and agriculture, both nationally and internationally. They can work especially in research and development laboratories dealing with the synthesis of organic compounds, their separation and analysis, structure elucidation and purification methods, in reference laboratories, in design and commercial institutions. They are well prepared and flexible to become professionals not only within their specializations, the scope of their education enables them to easily adapt to potential employment in branches that go beyond their specializations.
