Subject area: physical science, environment
Kind of studies: full-time studies
The 3 years program finished with Bachelor degree includes all
subjects of modern chemistry. Well prepared courses allow to gain a good
fundamental knowledge of chemistry, practice in synthesis and
application of physicochemical methods for structural and analytical
studies. Well equipped laboratories allow students to acquire skills in
different ares of chemistry by the individual training.
Program includes inorganic, organic, analytical, physical and
theoretical chemistry courses, containing lectures, seminars and
laboratory training in small groups. The curriculum includes not only
chemistry but also subjects of related sciences, such as physical and
physico-chemical instrumental methods.
An important advantage of studying at the Faculty of Chemistry
Wrocław University is free access for students to modern instruments
(NMR, EPR, X-ray, MS, TEM, SEM) located in 15 Faculty,s laboratories.
Moreover, direct every-day contact with professors guarantees high level
and efficient studies . Apart from core subjects students can
additionally choose facultative courses according to their interest.
Having completed our studies graduates will be able to work in
laboratories on modern equipment, and in companies that use modern
technologies, as well as research institutions and diagnostic
laboratories. Graduates can also work in various industries, in
particular in the area of new environmentally friendly technologies and
Chemistry is the scientific discipline involved with compounds composed of atoms, i.e. elements, and molecules, i.e. combinations of atoms: their composition, structure, properties, behavior and the changes they undergo during a reaction with other compounds. Chemistry addresses topics such as how atoms and molecules interact via chemical bonds to form new chemical compounds. There are four types of chemical bonds: covalent bonds, in which compounds share one or more electron(s); ionic bonds, in which a compound donates one or more electrons to another compound to produce ions (cations and anions); hydrogen bonds; and Van der Waals force bonds.
I was an atheist, finding no reason to postulate the existence of any truths outside of mathematics, physics and chemistry. But then I went to medical school, and encountered life and death issues at the bedsides of my patients. Challenged by one of those patients, who asked "What do you believe, doctor?", I began searching for answers.

Like literature, philosophy is not distinguished from other subjects by a specific approach to a subject-matter independent of it. Chemistry deals with chemicals, biology with life and astronomy with very large, very distant objects. Philosophy can boast no such definite subject-matter.

Modern warfare, we discovered, was to a far greater extent than ever before a conflict of chemists and manufacturers. Manpower, it is true, was indispensable, and generalship will always, whatever the conditions, have a vital part to play. But troops, however brave and well led, were powerless under modern conditions unless equipped with adequate and up-to-date artillery (with masses of explosive shell), machine-guns, aircraft and other supplies. Against enemy machine-gun posts and wire entanglements the most gallant and best-led men could only throw away their precious lives in successive waves of heroic martyrdom. Their costly sacrifice could avail nothing for the winning of victory.
