This course provides you with an additional qualification in surface and materials chemistry. Participants will develop theoretical and practical skills in coating chemistry, polymer chemistry and related industrial segments.
The course puts participants in a position to address topical issues in surface chemistry by building on their chemistry expertise. They look at basic principles and special materials science techniques, as well as enhancing their know-how in production, manufacturing technologies and characteristics of important productssuch such as paints, resins, coating materials, pigments, additives and ahesives. Participants can then test their knowledge in practice in the lab.
The course has been developed in conjunction with the Association of the Austrian Chemical Industry.
Funding possibilities for students
Active students, who apply for this course with a start in June 2021, will be supported by the chemical industry with a scholarship of 2,000 euros. This will ensure a targeted professional qualification of young chemists in a field of the chemical industry that is of central importance for Austria. In addition, the optimal involvement of students can create a better connection between academia and industry and thus facilitate research projects.
