About the department
The Department of Chemistry and Materials Science in the Aalto University School of Chemical Engineering started in 2017. It was established by merging units of chemistry and material scientists that share common interests: micro-, nano- and atomic scale engineering of compounds and materials, and computational sciences related to these areas.
The research in the department focuses on avanced and functional materials, renewable energy materials, numerical modelling and chemical synthesis and analysis. These are related to e.g. next generation electronics, future energy applications and medical purposes. Our teaching, besides the research areas, provides students a solid background in sciences related to these topics.
Among the strenghts of the department is to combine experimental and computational methods, ability to collaborate with other departments and to have excellent international collaboration network.
