Master programmes in English

These Master study programmes are primarily designed for applicants from abroad. Students are required to pay a tuition fee. All courses are conducted in English. All study programmes are accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports and are in accordance with Bologna Process - European Higher Education Area requirements.

Beside the four UCT Prague study programmes listed below, we also offer two joint master degree programmes together with our partner universities in other EU countries.

Chemistry, Technology and Materials

Chemistry, Technology and Materials

The study programme “Chemistry, Technology, and Materials” consists of two specializations, “Chemistry and Chemical Technology” and “Materials Chemistry and Technology”. This programme is designed as a follow-up Master programme (culminating with a Master degree and the Czech title Ing., the equivalent of an MSc.). The programmes builds upon prior education of graduates with bachelor degrees (Bc.) from the UCT Prague “Chemistry and Technology” bachelor programme or an equivalent bachelor programme at a university or comparable institution abroad. The programme is taught in English (requiring, at a minimum, B2 level English language skills) and is designed for students that cannot or do not wish to enrol in a Czech language programme.

 

Careers

Students graduate with one of two specializations, “Chemistry and Chemical Technology” or “Materials Chemistry and Technology”, and are well qualified for positions in the chemical industry and all materials-oriented sectors. The Czech title Ing. (equivalent to an MSc.) is the most acknowledged title for highly-qualified professionals in production plants, especially technologists and production managers, as well as for applied research and development (R&D) and supervisory quality control (QC) positions. Due to the solid and sufficiently general foundation in chemistry, technology, and materials, graduates of this programme are well prepared for choosing careers that are close to, but not necessarily identical with, their specializations. Of course, an added bonus of this English programme is the fact that graduates are well prepared to enter highly competitive and dynamic European and worldwide job markets. It goes without saying that graduates of this English programme are also optimally prepared for Ph.D. studies and subsequent academic careers in Chemistry, Materials Science, and related fields anywhere in Europe or in other English-speaking countries.

Specialization - Chemistry and Chemical Technology

In addition to this common programme foundation, with a Chemistry and Chemical Technology specialization, students focus on organic synthesis, retrosynthesis, process design, molecular spectroscopy, and several more specialized topics (catalysis, transition metals in organic synthesis, and so on). → more

Specialization - Materials Chemistry and Technology

With the “Materials Chemistry and Technology” specialization, students graduate with a thorough foundation in chemistry and physics of solids, microstructure-property relations, crystal chemistry, spectroscopic and microscopic characterization of materials, and mechanics of materials, and can simultaneously focus more specifically on a material class of their choice (metals, polymers, glass, or ceramics). → more

Sustainability and Environmental Engineering

Sustainability and Environmental Engineering

CHYBI CHARAKTERISTIKA PROGRAMU

The programme prepares experts with expert knowledge of environmental chemistry, microbiology, hydrobiology, water and atmosphere technologies, decontamination technologies, and waste handling technologies. The interdisciplinary character of this programme prepares graduates for careers in all areas related to environmental protection and engineering. The programme provides students with a comprehensive knowledge of environmental protection and engineering, including air, water, and soil protection. The programme emphasizes expert education about waste production from both industrial and municipal sources and concentrates on the prevention and minimization of waste production, on waste utilization and reprocessing, waste removal, and assessment of environmental impacts. An important part of the programme is devoted to water technologies and air protection technologies. The programme also includes education about industrial toxicology, ecotoxicology, environmental analysis, decontamination technologies, and environmentally-oriented legislation.

Careers

Graduates are prepared for careers in process engineering, research and development, design, and production control. They can also serve as experts to administrative and supervisory bodies, rescue services, and waste handling and reprocessing plants. They can also work as secondary school teachers. Graduates of this programme are highly flexible and gain the skills necessary to adapt easily to changes in the job market.

Biotechnology and Food Science

Biotechnology and Food Science

CHYBI CHARAKTERISTIKA PROGRAMU

The programme prepares graduates to become experts with high-level knowledge in biotechnologies and bioingeneering and food science, with an emphasis on food quality and safety. The broadly designed structure of this programme—together with intentional connection between chemical, biological, and engineering education—opens a wide range of career options to graduates. The programme extends and deepens general knowledge gained at the Bachelor level in biochemistry, organic and physical chemistry, biology, microbiology, food technology and analysis, and in the fundamentals in biotechnology and bioengineering. Students may hone their expertise by properly choosing elective courses.

Careers

Graduates are prepared for highly qualified positions in biotechnological companies, in food production plants, in companies oriented to agricultural commodities, and in health care or pharmaceutical companies. They are qualified to hold positions in (bio-)process design and control and quality management in research and development departments. Due to the versatility of their education, graduates are prepared to adapt easily to changing conditions and new tasks. Graduates are also prepared for positions in administration and supervisory agencies and doctoral studies.

Data Engineering in Chemistry

Data Engineering in Chemistry

CHYBI CHARAKTERISTIKA PROGRAMU

The programme was designed in reaction to the rapid changes in the industrial and scientific research sectors in the Information Age. This Industry 4.0 initiative reflects the changing industrial situation associated with gradual digitization, automation, and robotization. In the case of the chemical industry, however, there is still a need to understand the theoretical nature of the chemical processes and processes that can be automated, and this programme provides this understanding to graduates, being based on the UCT Prague specialization in chemistry and chemical engineering. At the same time, it provides graduates with sufficient knowledge in information technology and data processing.

Careers

The graduate are prepared for careers in industry (e.g. pharmaceutical, petrochemical, food) and in research, development, consulting and data processing companies. Graduates possess the ability to critically-evaluate new information; to search, sort and analyze this information; and to draw conclusions. Graduates are also prepared to continue their studies in doctoral study programmes and to develop their own scientific career pathways.
