Chemistry at Ångström
Chemistry is an important key in the development towards a more sustainable society. We research to find solutions to some of the challenges we face - by developing the next generation of batteries, more efficient solar cells, more environmentally friendly hydrogen, and finding materials that can replace critical elements.

Do you have imagination, are you curious and creative? Then chemistry have many exciting areas to offer. New substances are created every day in hopes of finding intelligent materials, new medicines and to get new insights into how nature works. If you are a more theoretical person you can design molecules in the digital world.
The width within chemistry is reflected both in curricula and research. We have everything from basic level courses to specialized courses, within bachelor, engineering and master level programmes. The courses within our master programmes are given in English.
