Chemistry (560) - Bachelor's Degree            
 

Chemistry, the science of materials, is a very broad scientific field which also includes studies of the structure and properties of materials and development of new materials for human use.


The Chemistry teaching program imparts to its students broad knowledge in all fields of chemistry and related fields, such as Mathematics, Physics, Programming, Biology and Nanotechnology, that are needed for a deep understanding of modern chemistry.


The Chemistry teaching program has a number of study tracks that train students both for integration in Israeli industry, including the high-tech industry, the chemistry industry and the pharamaceutical and biotechnological industry, and for continuing in advanced studies.


The courses deal with the bases of chemistry on the basis of fields that are now in the forefront of chemistry research worldwide. In addition to the main track (extended Chemistry) there are other tracks, such as a dual teaching program track in which students combine studies in the Chemistry teaching program with another teaching program of their choosing.


Students are offered courses in the various branches of Chemistry and a variety of modern laboratories where students will encounter advanced equipment.


The courses offered by the Chemistry teaching program are indicated by the prefix 69***.


Studies in the Chemistry teaching program entail work in laboratories with hazardous materials of various types. The University cannot guarantee a place in the teaching program for students who would not or could not do what is required of them when working in a laboratory.


To ensure the safety of students while working in the teaching laboratories, all students must take a course on safety in the laboratory (a computer-based course) at the beginning of each year. Taking and successfully passing the course are a precondition for working in a laboratory. The numbers of the courses are as follows:

·         Computer-based safety training for year 1 students: 76222

·         Computer-based safety training for year 2 students: 76223

·         Computer-based safety training for year 3 students: 76224


Many tasks in the framework of the teaching program depend on computer use, retrieving information on the Net and operating basic programs such as PowerPoint, Excel, Word. Students will also be directed to courses on the Internet according to recommendations by tutors and teachers. Students would do well to prepare themselves for working with a computer and being familiar with these programs.


Students must, in the framework of BSc studies, take a programming course with a scope of 3 credits. In the academic year 2016/2017 students are offered a new course, designed for Chemistry: Mathematical Programming with Matlab for Chemistry (3 credits). The course is offered to the students of the teaching program from year 2 only, in light of the mathematical background it requires which is studied in year 1.


Special programs:


“Etgar” program

Although there is no division of BSc studies into different streams, students should be aware that in MSc studies courses must be taken in accordance with the stream they selected. Some of these courses (as detailed in the MSc studies) are open to BSc students and may be taken already in the third year.
