Scheikundige Technologie

Onze bacheloropleiding is verbonden aan de volgende onderzoeksinstituten:

ENTEG - Research institute of Engineering and Technology

The research institute ENTEG is an engineering science and technology institute that has the capability to analyse, explore and design new technologies that are based on the integration of fundamental and engineering sciences.

Stratingh Institute for Chemistry

Research groups: Bio-Organic Chemistry - Hirsch Group (Dr. A.K.H. Hirsch) , (Bio)Organic Materials and Devices (Prof. J.C. Hummelen) , Molecular Inorganic Chemistry - Harder Group (Prof. S. Harder) , Synthetic Organic Chemistry - The Feringa Group (prof. B.L. Feringa)

Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials

Basic research on materials is directed towards unravelling the relations between the properties that determine their functionality and their chemical composition and structure. The quest for in-depth understanding of these constitutive relations often leads to unexpected boundaries signifying fundamental gaps in our knowledge. Although the structure-property relationship is in itself a truism, the actual linkage between (micro) structural aspects in a material and its physical/chemical properties is elusive. The reason is that various properties are determined by the collective behaviour of molecules, atoms and electrons and their behaviour may be extremely non-linear on different time and length scales.

The classic materials triangle concerns an integrative approach in the three aspects of structure, property and chemical composition. The Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials adds an extra dimension to this traditional view by an unconventional linkage to the field of biomolecular sciences, which includes the design aspects as well.

Research groups: Computational Physics , Materials Science , Micromechanics , Nanostructured Materials and Interfaces , Optical Condensed Matter Physics , Polymer Chemistry and Bioengineering , Photophysics and opto-electronics , Physics of Nanodevices , Physical Chemistry of Polymers , Polymer Thin Film and Surface Science , Physics of Organic Semiconductors , Single-Molecule Biophysics , Solid State Materials for Electronics , Surfaces and Thin Films , Theoretical Chemistry , Theory of Condensed Matter

ESRIG - Energy and Sustainability Research Institute Groningen

Although ESRIG is a Research Institute, bundling strengths leads to new educational possibilities as well in the Master phase the Energy and Environmental Sciences (EES) programme has been operational for several years, under responsibility of IVEM and CIO. At present, this programme offers two tracks: The IVEM track ("Energy and Environmental Sciences"), and the CIO-track ("Experimental studies of greenhouse gases and climate history"). The IVEM track will be extended by elements of SSG research. The CIO-track will be enforced and broadened by the other experimental groups inside ESRIG.

In the Bachelor phase the curriculum of Physics and Chemistry will start with an "energy and environmental" track form the year 2010-2011 onwards. As ESRIG is the central institute for this subject, ESRIG scientists take the lead in both the track design and the actual teaching.

Research groups: Centre for Isotope Research , Geo-energy , Combustion Technology , Centre for Energy and Environmental Sciences , Ocean Ecosystems , Science and Society group

    The combination of different fields makes it interesting

    'When you think of Philips you think of devices, but innovation has a much broader focus nowadays. Chemistry also plays a very important role. We are currently researching ways to improve scanners in hospitals by using molecular imaging.

    We make use of modified biomolecules to improve the visibility of abnormalities in the human body, such as cancer cells, which will light up during a scan. This way we hope to find cancer or heart diseases at a much earlier phase. This kind of research hands us starting points for new therapies. The combination of chemical research and medical application makes my work incredibly fascinating. It is a field of work which never bores and includes a lot of challenges, and where I can apply all of the courses which I had during my studies. I also like the fact that my work includes cooperation with people from a lot of different fields.

    Challenging, but interesting!

    'I'm loving it here. The pace of study took some time to get used to, because each tutorial discusses a whole chapter of our study book. But you'll be fine as long as you attend all the lectures, which deal with all the material for the exam.

    I especially enjoyed Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry and Molecules, which are all about reactions and how they work. I find subjects like Physical Chemistry and Spectroscopy challenging, but very interesting. Alongside my studies I am a member of the rowing club Aegir, where I also stop in occasionally for drinks. I’m sharing a flat with two friends from secondary school, which is fantastic! We often eat together or go out to play sports.’
