Objectives

The undergraduate program in chemistry from the Andes University is for training professionals committed to the scientific and industrial development of the country, putting at your disposal, chemicals characterized by a strong scientific background, the result of academic excellence of the program with ability to use their knowledge and skills for the strengthening of basic and applied research in chemistry and growth of their industry in Colombia.

Similarly, thanks to its highly trained critical, ethical and comprehensive, it is expected that the chemical professional degree from the Andes University, lead in different fields of application of chemistry in Colombian society and strongly projected in the international context.

Study Plan

The thematic focus exclusively on the fundamental issues of knowledge of chemistry with major support from physics and mathematics. Fields of interaction with other natural science areas are treated and supplemented by advanced courses and elective courses such as medicinal chemistry practice in chemical synthesis, chemical flavorings, among others.

The Chemistry program provides a total of 135 credits (with no requirement for Spanish), which will: 2 theory courses and 2 laboratory courses in the Department of Physics (8 credits, 6%), 3 courses from the Mathematics Department ( 9 credits, 7%), and 1 course of theory and 1 Laboratory of the Department of Biology (3 credits, 2%). In addition, it supports the employment of methodologies and technologies, the program has a course on Algorithms and Object Oriented Programming offered by the Department of Systems Engineering (3 credits, 2%). Also included in the Chemistry program, 6 courses at basic cycle Uniandino (18 credits 13%), 2 elective courses (6 credits, 5%) and the course of Constitution and Democracy (3 credits, 2%).
