The “Transition Metals in Molecular Chemistry” (T2MC) Master Program provides a high-level education in Molecular Chemistry. It distinguishes itself from the National and European training offers by emphasizing on Transition Metal Chemistry and their applications. The learning and teaching approaches are attractive since they will provide students with solid skills in Molecular Chemistry while illustrating how this knowledge may be used for example to reduce the ecological impact of a synthesis process, or to contribute to the development of medical imaging. Also, T2MC is implementing further a driving policy to open up internationally: for instance each year a strong partnership with UCT Prague allows 3-4 students to get a double degree. [-]
