This specialisation gives you cutting-edge expertise through in-depth studies in the field of chemistry for renewable energy. Studies include the physical and chemical foundations to be able to take part in the development of new solutions for sustainable production of electricity and fuels, as well as energy storage. This is a global challenge and a major growth area, and you will be well equipped for either future research within academia or research and development in industry.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME?

The specialisation Chemistry for Renewable Energy, within the Master’s Programme in Chemistry, has been developed in cooperation with world leading research groups at Uppsala University and you get the opportunity to do your degree project in a ​dynamic and world-class research environment.

Within this unique specialisation, you will meet lecturers and professors who are experts in areas like nano-structured solar cells, artificial photosynthesis and solar fuels, photocatalysis, and Li-ion batteries. This is an advantage both if you want to continue with a PhD or have a job in industry or at a research institute.

During the programme you can expect to:

  • get a personal mentor who helps you prepare for your future career
  • develop new solutions for sustainable production of electricity and fuels, as well as energy storage
  • be a part of a university with two Nobel prizes in chemistry

The versatility of the field is also evident from where you can do your Master’s thesis project, which could be in the research group where you have your mentor, or in another group doing research in a related field. In the Uppsala region, there are also many large or small companies where you can find challenging projects, which will further add to your contact network.

A degree from Uppsala University will give you close connection to excellent and world leading research and you will have the opportunity to develop a personal contact network. You will have a personal mentor who will invite you to seminars, group-meetings and other events in order to prepare you for your future career and you will meet PhD-students and post-docs who have come to Uppsala to be part of an excellent research environment to do cutting-edge research. Our research groups have a well-developed cooperation with other institutions and research agencies which is beneficial for you when choosing a project for the master thesis, and to make contacts for your future career.

Student profile
You are probably coming directly from your Bachelor’s degree or have had a relevant job to strengthen your analytical and experimental skills. You have not, anyway, forgotten too much of your broad chemistry base. Your university was well equipped with experimental facilities so you have good practical training working in a lab, and can select relevant methods and stay safe while doing experiments.

You have an analytical mind and are able and willing to express your thoughts in both writing and speaking. You are extremely motivated and willing to take the responsibility needed to successfully complete your studies.

A PhD education is a distinct possibility in your future so you would value coming into contact with current research and prominent researchers in the respective international field.
