What is Chemistry at NTNU?
Chemistry is the study of atoms, molecules and materials - their properties, composition and reactions, and how chemical processes work in industrial contexts and in the environment around us. Chemistry has traditionally been divided into organic (organic compounds - containing carbon and hydrogen) and inorganic chemistry (chemistry that is not related to organic molecules) but the boundaries between the disciplines are not as clear these days.
The Department of Chemistry at NTNU offers both theoretical and practical disciplines. Chemistry is basic in the studies of medicine, biology and technology. The Department has close cooperation with disciplines such as physics, biotechnology, biology, medicine, materials technology and chemical engineering at the university.
