Environmental Chemistry is the science of processes that influence the composition and chemical properties of the environment, proper for habitation. It is concerned with the background, behaviour, movement and impact of chemical compounds in all layers of the environment. It researches the means through which the human factor affects these layers. Environmental Chemistry utilizes knowledge and tools from other sciences in the study of air, water and soil. It addresses issue of contamination and degradation and it aims to exploit theoretical knowledge for creating solutions to the aforementioned problems.
Environmental Toxicology is more focused on the destructive effects of chemical agents on the living organisms of all ecosystems. Empowering the knowledge provided by biology, computer science, math and chemistry, it sets out to understand and prevent harmful impact caused by toxic agents.
We are one of the leading institutions developing nanotechnology and the next generation of materials and nanoelectronic devices. The Department of Electronic Engineering has been recognised as one of the leading in the UK and is highly regarded for the quality of its teaching and training. This course is designed to provide you with the knowledge, skills and practical experience to understand how nanotechnology can change our lives.
The 2-year MSc programme in Nanotechnology focuses on the design, creation and study of functional materials, structures, devices, and systems by directly controlling matter on the nanometre scale.
This course provides recent graduates with training in current analytical techniques, scientific and transferable skills applicable for environmental chemistry research.
You will develop advanced laboratory research skills to progress your career in the field of toxicology. We'll enhance your understanding of the interaction of toxins with molecular targets, target organ toxicity, and the role of the immune system in the response to toxins.
The Master Program in Marine Resources Biotechnology main purpose is to form professionals with scientific, technical and human capabilities that allow the development of applied research or management activities in the area of marine resources biotechnology.
Environmental science is a young science that deals with human impacts on nature, on the cultural heritage, and on our health. Environmental science studies the threats to the common future on Earth, but also the opportunities that these challenges create.
The combined talents and expertise of physicists and chemists are the key to success in the field of condensed matter and nanomaterials science, which is the focus of this programme.
Modern society uses more than 100 000 different chemicals and chemical products, all of them being potentially released into the environment. Ecotoxicology is concerned with the environmental impact of these substances.
There are many thousands of chemicals affecting the environment in our modern society, and their use is increasing rapidly.
This program provides a one-year training in the field of atmospheric sciences at the highest level. It offers courses in physics and chemistry given that an interdisciplinary approach is essential to understand atmospheric processes.
Toxicology relates to many aspects of our everyday activities, so a career in this field promises to provide a variety of opportunities aimed at improving the standard of life and the environment.
The purpose of the programme is to provide an engineering education within the materials field where emphasis is on synthesis, chemical characterisation, physical and chemical properties and applications
