The SCIVEC master programme is based on the ECTS system and is offered by the Faculty of Applied Chemistry and Material Sciences through the Department of Anorganic and Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry.
The SCIVEC master programme is aimed at developping complementary abilities for chemistry, biology and physics teachesrs, helping them in their teaching activity.
A major objective of this master programme is to offer a multi- and inter-disciplinary education as shown by its four-semester curriculum.
The SCIVEC mster programme provides both didactic and professional training as detailed below:
• Chemistry (Concepts and strategies in modern chemistry, Bioinorganic chemistry, Hybrid materials, Biopolimers, Biochemistry, Supramolecular chemistry, Membranology, Chemical bioanalysis, Physical chemistry for life sciences, Electrochemical phenomena in natural sciences)
• Biophysics, Biospectroscopy Applied microbiology, Pharmaceutical chemistry
• Ecology, Biosecurity, Clean energy sources, Catalysts and catalytic processes for pollution prevention, Green chemistry, Ecotoxicology, Functional compounds for pollution control, Cellular automata in chemistry and ecology, Environmental policies.
• Informatics for life sciences.
Skills and abilities acquired
The SCIVEC master programme will provide:
• A solid prfessional background in life sciences and ecology (through in-depth and extensive study of chemistry, physics, biology and ecology) coupled with the corresponding teaching skills.
The ability to teach multiple discipilens in accordance with the most recent updates of the curricular area and with the new Ecucation Act.
• The ability to work in interdisciplinary areas by combining knowledge from chemistry, physics and biology.
Development of interpersonal communication, team work and job finding skills
• The ability to use the newly acquired skills in real-life projects
• For university-educated teachers in chemistry, biology, biochemistry and physics, the required skills for a fast and smooth integration in the new teaching system in accordance to the Bologna Convention.
- discipline de specialitate
• Professional skills and knowledge
• Familiarity with the most recent tendencies in life sciences (chemistry, biology, physics and ecology)
In-depth knowledge of the relationship between chemistry and other scientific areas (material science, biochemistry, biophysics, biology, medicine)

Further professional development of graduation
Masters specialization program LIFE SCIENCES AND ECOLOGY (Scivec) provides:
- skills development in chemistry (deepening and broadening the knowledge, abilities and skills structuring for specialists training)
- the acquisition of double competencies by introduction of complementary disciplines in the master program
- the development of the transverse dimension of competence in inorganic chemistry, ecology and biology domains.
- formation of skills related to interpersonal communication, teamwork, rapid insertion of human resources on market
- the valuation of the acquired expertise
- empowerment and improvement of university graduates with specialization in chemistry, biochemistry, physics, from pre-Bologna series, engineers or teachers for the teaching profession in those areas.
Specific skills development in accordance with policies and strategies in the life sciences, as well in pedagogical and didactic subjects:
- knowledge of development trends of the fundamental chemistry, ecology and biology.
- knowledge of structure-property relationship for inorganic compounds of practical importance and choosing the optimal synthesis strategy to obtain compounds with desired properties (magnetic, electrical, catalytic, medical properties, etc.)
- knowledge of inorganic chemistry relationship with other fields: material science, biochemistry, medicine
- creativity developing in rational design of new materials using the molecular auto-assembly concepts
- understanding and applying the principles of green chemistry in the synthesis of functional inorganic materials
- modelling the interactions between particles in the chemical transformations
- development of capacity for interpretation of experimental data by investigating: chemical reactions, thermodynamic aspects, reaction products, obtained material properties
- understanding and using of general concepts for the acquisition of modern thinking and dynamic attitude to ensure the update and completing of the knowledge gained by teachers of chemistry, physics, biology.
- developing the capacity of using the main information provided by the principles of physics, chemistry and biology in the interpretation of the specific processes in food safety, ecology, microbiology and pharmaceuticals
- optimal combination of verbal communication with non-verbal communication
- ability to complete research projects and exploitation of research results in teaching.
