The program encompasses basic training in organic chemistry (analysis of organic compounds, organic synthesis, chemistry of heterocyclic compounds, theoretical foundations of organic chemistry, methods of elemental organic chemistry, etc.) with the study of such disciplines as nanochemistry, supercomputer modelling, chemical problems of ecology, etc. The graduate has all necessary knowledge to perform professional activities in the field of chemical theory, chemical synthesis, ecology, pharmaceutical and medical chemistry, expert standards and certification.
During training, students gain the valuable theoretical knowledge and practical skills for professional activities, in particular, they systematically study methods of nuclear magnetic resonance, mass chromatography, mass spectrometry, infrared and ultraviolet spectroscopy and X-ray analysis, which are necessary for working in modern analytical laboratories.
Master’s program graduates can either continue their education as postgraduate at the South Ural State University, the Ural Federal University, the Institute of Organic Synthesis, Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Yekaterinburg), the Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow), and work in various chemical laboratories associated with the synthesis and analysis of organic and organometallic compounds, in particular, in the forensic departments, in the laboratories of the centres of hygiene and epidemiology, forensic examination, in the quality and control departments at pharmaceutical plants, etc.
Research at the Department of Theoretical and Applied Chemistry is conducted in the following areas: Development of methods for the directed synthesis of organoelemental compounds with practically significant properties, Development of methods for multiscale (from subatomic to macro-object) supercomputer modeling, Creating new heterocyclic systems as promising biologically active substances underlying modern drugs, Electrochemistry of metals, alloys and carbon materials.
Students take an active part in scientific research, have joint scientific publications with teachers, present their own scientific work at national and international conferences. For the best student work they are awarded with diplomas, awards and prizes at various competitions and All-Russian conferences.
