Branch detail

Physical Chemistry


Original title in Czech: Fyzikální chemie
Abbreviation: DPCPO_FCH_4
Specialisation: -
Length of Study: 4 years
Programme: Physical Chemistry
Faculty: Faculty of Chemistry
Academic year: 2017/2018
Accredited from: 16.10.2009
Accredited until: 31.5.2024
Profile of the branch:
The main objective of the study is to train the highly qualified professionals who will be prepared for independent, creative, scientific and research activities in the field of physical chemistry. Students are trained to formulate a scientific problem independently, propose hypotheses and procedures leading to its solving and attempt its confirmation on an experimental or theoretical level. Critical evaluation of published scientific information and the ability to communicate in English - both verbally and in written form, makes an integral part of the study.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples:
The specialization trains professionals who will be able to participate in highly qualified scientific and research activities based on physically-chemical processes, namely in university departments, the departments of The Academy of Sciences, research institutes, but also in industrial research centres. The graduates are prepared for independent creative work in the area of physical chemistry. Due to a wide range of practical applications of physical chemistry, the graduates can find employments not only in physical and chemical research, but virtually in all chemical or chemistry related specializations.
