Overview

Chemistry is the study of chemical and physical properties of substances and is a fundamental enabling science. At the University of Tasmania we have innovative teaching programs and a vigorous research program that covers most of the major areas, including analytical and industrial chemistry plus areas of biological chemistry. The units available in the School of Chemistry provide training for students who are planning a career in chemistry and also for students requiring chemistry to support specialist studies in other disciplines, such as biotechnology , Biochemistry and Microbiology.
