Candidates for students of the State Higher Vocational School in Tarnów will be able to choose from as many as five specializations during the next recruitment, and the Department of Chemistry also invites you to part-time studies.
For years, PWSZ has a very wide range of specializations in the field of Chemistry. Medical chemistry, applied chemistry, food chemistry and chemical rescue are now joined by another, fifth specialty – quality control in chemistry. The decision to open it was made after an in-depth analysis of the labor market and discussions with employers.
They repeatedly pointed to the growing role of quality control in many industries. All products based on chemical substances or materials (from drugs to polymers) require the quality control of physicochemical parameters, hence the decision to increase the emphasis on this type of issues in our study program – explains Dr. Krzysztof Kleszcz, head of the Department of Chemistry at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at PWSZ in Tarnów .
The new specialty is a unique offer for everyone interested in broadly understood analytics. Dr. Kleszcz argues that its graduates can work in various industries. –
I mean really many industries – from food to pharmaceutical; the broadly defined chemical industry as well as analytical laboratories that test everything from drinking water to industrial wastewater, he explains.
However, this is not the end of the news. Thinking about professionally active people who want to develop their knowledge, gain new qualifications and increase their competences, the Department of Chemistry has extended its didactic offer to include extramural studies in Chemistry.
The specialization in Applied Chemistry is the main specialization in the field of Chemistry. Studies in this specialization are intended for people who want to gain comprehensive knowledge in the field of the latest achievements in the basic departments of chemistry, learn about modern research methods and procedures, modern and classical chemical analysis, organic and inorganic synthesis, techniques for testing various materials. Students can use a wide range of optional courses that allow them to develop practical skills useful in their professional life and gain competences that are attractive from the point of view of employers
explains Dr. Krzysztof Kleszcz.
Part-time studies in the field of Practical Chemistry, specializing in Applied Chemistry, last 6 semesters and end with obtaining a bachelor’s degree.
Completed first-cycle studies are the basis for undertaking second-cycle (master’s) studies in the field of Chemistry or related studies. For chemistry graduates with a bachelor’s degree from PWSZ in Tarnów, she prepared a proposal for second-cycle studies in the field of Chemical Technology.
