Master Thesis

Chemistry for the Life Sciences

The Master’s thesis is at the heart of your studies. You select modules from Entrepreneurial Skills and Advanced Life Science Skills at an early stage to prepare you for work on your thesis. From the start you are part of a research group at the Institute for Chemistry and Biological Chemistry in Wädenswil or in an external company, organisation or research institute. On the basis of your research you answer specific questions and work out solutions which are relevant for research, business and /or society, often in cooperation with national or international partners. The thesis gives you the opportunity to demonstrate that you can apply the knowledge and competencies you have acquired.
