The Faculty of Chemistry

The Faculty of Chemistry is a vibrant academic unit, with dynamic research and teaching programs, active faculty members and modern research laboratories and facilities. It spans the full spectrum of disciplines within chemistry – physical, analytical, inorganic, organic, biochemical and theoretical – and overlaps the associated fields of physics, materials sciences, biology, medicine and electronics and nanotechnology.

More than 2630 students have graduated from the Faculty of Chemistry, including more than 1691 bachelors, 543 masters and 398 doctors. To date, many of the Faculty’s alumni hold leading positions in Israeli industry including its high-tech and defense sectors, universities and other educational institutions, as well as in various governmental and public research organizations.

Join us

1

Bachelor degree in Chemistry at the Technion

The Department offers a basic three-year program in Chemistry. It is designed to provide a strong background in all branches of Chemistry, as well as a solid foundation in the complementary fields of Physics, Mathematics, and Biology. The program awards the degree of Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)

2

Joint program in Molecular Biochemistry

In the last years, we have witnessed enormous progress in the field of biotechnology both in research and in industry. This is due to the constantly growing interconnection between two large scientific branches – chemistry and biology. Almost all pharmaceutical companies and a majority of biotechnological companies seek to hire scientists with a deep background in these fields. The Molecular Biochemistry program is designed to provide students with the strong basis in chemistry required to deal with the challenges of the rapidly developing field of molecular biology.

3

Chemistry and Materials Engineering

This program leads to a joint bachelor’s degree in Materials Engineering and in Chemistry. The degree qualifies students for research and development in high-tech industries, or for further studies towards a master’s degree or a Ph.D. in this interdisciplinary field.
Students of this combined program can take a wide array of courses from the Faculty of Chemistry and from the Faculty of Materials Engineering. Completion of the degree takes an estimated four-and-a-half years.

4

The direct M.Sc. track for exceptional students

The direct M.Sc. program allows especially bright students to engage in research during the early stages of their undergraduate studies. The program’s goal is to enable these exceptional students to complete an M.Sc. degree (including a research thesis) only four years after starting their undergraduate studies

Fun and studies

The faculty encourages activities for the students and staff forging “team spirit”, karaoke nights, various tours, and other fun activities to contribute to the studying experience of our staff and students!

Chemistry has been described as the central science because it touches and connects with so many scientific disciplines.

It is only natural that the research interests of our faculty span many different facets of chemical science, and many of the research projects performed in our laboratories are multidisciplinary in nature. This wide variety of scientific endeavors makes the Schulich faculty a vibrant and exciting place to conduct research.

A more detailed description of the research activities in our faculty can be found by selecting a specific research area from the list below.

Part of Israeli Industry

Faculty members are cooperating with the local industry on various levels. This cooperation can take different forms, such as direct funding of research by partners in the industry, government funding of joint projects between academic researchers and industry, start-up companies in which academic staff is involved, consulting services provided to industry, patent applications and commercialization, and service work provided to the industry by our service research laboratories.
