Department of Chemistry

Head: prof. Ing. Josef Šedlbauer, Ph.D.

We are responsible for the bachelor’s programs Chemistry for Education and Natural History for Education, the master’s program Teaching Chemistry at Lower-Secondary School, as well as two master’s programs in engineering: Nanotechnology and Bioengineering. (The first one of these two programs, Nanotechnology, is accredited as a program of the Faculty of Mechatronics, Informatics and Interdisciplinary Studies). In addition to all of these, we also teach subjects on environmental studies and global issues for the whole university.

What can you experience at the department?

We enjoy teaching and doing research, and we love dealing with practical issues; we are also going to teach this to you. Since we do not have too many students, we know them well, and like them a lot. We teach using modern approaches, where experiments, field trips and lab practice are an integral part of the experience, and we also teach you functional soft skills. You can join our research activities already in your first year of studies and do that while receiving research stipends. Studying in our programs is not easy, but we do what is in our means to make sure that you graduate. Since we have a unique combination of research in biology, chemistry and bioengineering, we hold a lot of patents, and make the world a better place.
