This is a preliminary list of courses for study year 2 for those who started the program 2017. There might be changes. 

Study year 2 consists of mandatory courses and a conditionally elective course. The course BB1170 continues fråm study year 1.

At least two courses of the six conditionally elective courses must be studied under study year 2 and study year 3. See the list below
KD1270 Organic Chemistry, Basic Concepts and Practice 2
SF1626 Calculus in Several Variable 
KE1185 Chemical Engineering Systems
BB1000 Programming in Python
Economy course or
Language course

You must study KD1270 Organic Chemistry, basic concepts and practice 2 as one of the conditionally elective courses during study year 2 or 3 or use the free elective credits at the master program to be eligible to take the course KD2310 Advanced Organic Chemistry.

The schedule for study year 2 is adapted for the courses KD1270 Organic Chemistry, Basic Concepts and Practice 2 and SF1626 Calculus in Several Variable.
