 1-  To develop information at the level of expertise in relevant disciplines (Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry) on the basis of undergraduate knowledge
 2-  To use the theoretical and practical information in the field of his expertise
 3-  To understand and analyze the problems encountered in the related field and solve them using the research methods
 4-  To develop a critical approach to his knowledge and skills acquired and learn to direct them
 5-  To present the quantitative and qualitative data systematically in the current developments to the researchers in his field and outside the field of area in written, oral and visual form
 6-  To be able utilize verbal and written communication in a foreign language listed in European Language Portfolio
 7-  To use computer software in the level required by the area and to be able to use information and communications technologies at advanced level
 8-  To be able to supervise the related data in the collection, interpretation, implementation and announcement stages by considering the social, scientific, cultural and ethical values and teach them
 9-  To develop strategy, policy and application areas in his field and evaluate the results obtained in the quality framework
 10-  To interpret information in his field by combining them with different disciplinary areas and to create a novel knowledge
Occupational Profiles of Graduates

At the end of their study period at the graduate level, the students become specialist in their fields and they can work in the universities as a teaching staff or in private sector.

Access to Further Studies

It is possible for the institute students to continue their doctorate studies after master degree.

Examination Regulations, Assesment and Grading

Examinations are composed of one mid-term and one final exam. In order a student to take the final exam, s/he should attend at least 70% of theoretical courses and 80% of applied and laboratory studies. The examinations can be in written form, oral form, written-application form, oral-application form or project form. The course grade is calculated by adding 40% of mid-term grade to the 60% of the final exam. To be accepted as successful from the course, the second cycle degree students should get at least 70(CC) out of 100. The final exam results should be 70 (CC) for second cycle degree students in order to pass the course.

Graduation Requirements

The requirements to graduate fromMaster Degree are to complete 120 ECTS credit hours including at least seven courses the credit of which is above 21 National Credits, a seminar and thesis study.
