Welcome to the Department of Chemistry

We are committed to offering students an excellent education in chemistry and chemistry-related areas through our Bachelor (BSc), Masters (MSc) and PhD programs. Unique for Switzerland, we offer in cooperation with the Faculty of Economics, a master program in business chemistry.

Our broad and interdisciplinary research programs mirror very well the enthusiasm felt by all our research groups for their subject areas, and their excitement in carrying scientific discoveries into neighbouring disciplines.
