Program Studi Magister Kimia ITB didirikan pada tahun 1980 dan telah menjadi salah satu program studi magister terdepan di Indonesia dalam bidang ilmu kimia. Baru-baru ini, pada tahun 2024, program studi ini meraih akreditasi Unggul dari BAN-PT, menunjukkan komitmennya terhadap kualitas pendidikan tinggi yang berstandar internasional. Prestasi ini merupakan bukti nyata bahwa Program Studi Magister Kimia ITB telah diakui secara nasional atas keunggulannya dalam bidang pendidikan dan penelitian kimia. 

Visi Program Studi Magister Kimia adalah menjadi penyelenggara pendidikan taraf magister dalam bidang kimia yang bersandarkan kepada perkembangan keilmuan kimia yang mutakhir, sehingga menjadi rujukan bagi masyarakat ilmiah secara nasional maupun internasional. Selain itu, Program Studi Magister Kimia juga berperan sebagai pemrakarsa dalam pengembangan ilmu kimia dan terapannya yang berorientasi kepada pemanfaatan sumber daya alam Indonesia dalam rangka peningkatan kesejahteraan bangsa.

Fast Track Program

Undergraduate Program Student Honors Chemistry ITB takes part of the Masters course credits in the fourth year so that it can complete the Masters program in one year.


Program Sandwiches

Fast track masters student (fast track) who pass the selection can do research for 6 months at the Zernike Institute for Advances Materials, University of Groningen, The Netherlands. This program has been running since 2007 and has produced more than 20 Master of Chemistry graduates who work in the industrial sector or continue their studies at domestic and foreign universities.


Double Degree Program

Students can earn Masters degrees from ITB and Masters degrees from the University of Twente or selected universities in France within 2 years. This program has been going on since 2008 and has produced 15 graduates who work in the industrial sector or continue their studies at domestic and foreign universities.

The ITB Chemistry Masters Program curriculum includes a minimum 36 credits consisting of 12 credits of compulsory courses, 12 credits of elective courses, And 12 research credits with a two-year study period. At the end of the education period, student research results are written in the form of a thesis and communicated in the form of seminars and scientific publications.

The ITB Chemistry Masters Program has five subprograms, each of which specializes in one area of chemistry, namely:

  • Analytical Chemistry focuses on separation and speciation, electrometry and chemical applications in the environmental and industrial fields.
  • Physical Chemistry which covers structure, energetics and chemical dynamics, as well as applied aspects in materials chemistry such as polymers, membranes and ceramics.
  • Inorganic Chemistry which covers fundamental aspects to understand the structure, physical properties and reactivity of inorganic compounds, synthesis and characterization of inorganic solids and coordination compounds.
  • Organic Chemistry studying the synthesis, structure and chemical properties of organic compounds and their applications in various fields including medicine, catalysis, food, corrosion, and solar cells.
  • Biochemistry study the structure and function of cell components, cell metabolism and chemical processes related to enzymes and genetic information.
