Education in English for students of Chemistry
The six-semester BSc program in Chemistry
April 10, 2007
Supervisor: Prof. László Szepes
The goal of the Chemistry BSc program is to educate chemists having theoretical and experimental knowledge in chemistry and basic knowledge in related fields (e.g. mathematics, physics, computer science, scientific foreign languages).
Having a BSc degree, the chemists
know the most important methodologies and their practical applications in a chemical laboratory
know the methods in presenting the results of their activity (both for scientific and non-scientific communities) in foreign languages, using computers
are able to acquire new competences by means of further trainings
can realize and independently solve primarily practical problems in chemical production, academical and industrial scientific institutes, analytical laboratories in agrochemistry, food industry, plant protection, quality assurance
can operate scientific instruments
are able to make decisions in their field.
Students are to collect a total of 180 credits in course of their studies. (Government decree defines a credit as a total workload of students, consisting of 30 hours of study including contact hours as well as preparation of home works and studying for examinations etc. In the majority of cases, in our Faculty a credit equals the contact-hour-per-week (chpw) value.)
The curriculum of the Program consists of:
basic scientific (non-chemical) courses (14–24 credits)
mathematics, physics, computer science, general economical, management, quality and environmental knowledge, European studies
Core Chemistry Module (82–92 credits)
general, inorganic, analytical, applied, organic and physical chemistry
Specialized Chemistry Module (50 credits)
physical chemistry, materials science, environmental chemistry and analysis, organic chemistry and biochemistry, macromolecular and polymer chemistry, knowledge in natural sciences
BSc Thesis (10 credits)
