Chemistry is the science which deals with molecular and atomic systems especially with the composition, properties, structure, and reactions of a substance (chemical reactions). Chemistry is closely related to physics and it is a branch of physical sciences. The main task of chemistry is to understand the origin of the substance. The composition of the substance is analyzed at atomic level. Atomic-molecular theory is the base of chemistry sciences. Chemistry differs from physics through the fact that during physical phenomena the substance does not turn into another (material vary on physical properties only) while during chemical reactions the substances transform into another. There are many branches of chemistry such as agro-chemistry, kinetics, cluster chemistry, combinatorial chemistry, solid state chemistry, nanochemistry, photochemistry and theoretical chemistry. Graduates can work in various positions, as chemical technologists, researchers, chemistry analysts, pharmacists, environmentalists, food technologists, oil and petroleum engineers and others.
This postgraduate degree course enables you to study aspects of medicinal chemistry that explore the links between disease, mechanisms of action and the development of safe, effective commercial drugs. You have the opportunity to pursue these topics across a number of different disease therapies using the innovative teaching methods pioneered by The Open University, while developing a wide range of skills associated with masters-level study
As a chemist you juggle with matter. You dissect, analyse and build. Our Chemistry Masters programme, which provides you with an exceptional tool box for your future, is closely associated with the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM). At this research institute physicists and chemists work together to explore the properties of molecules and materials.
This new course in Physical Organic Chemistry explores the physical aspects of organic chemistry. Physical organic chemistry finds application in many differing situations such as organic synthesis, chemical biology, green chemistry , catalysis, materials science and alternative energy research. The course will train the student in the scientific approach employed in physical organic chemistry.
2-year Master's program provides thorough knowledge and skills in the areas of laboratory and technological measurements, testing and chemical analysis methods, quality systems, metrology and related economic and legal aspects.
This four-year programme offers an extra year on top of the Biochemical Engineering BEng in which to acquire hands-on practical research experience and advanced design skills. Several optional routes provide flexibility to meet students' individual requirements.
ENSCBP trains Chemical and Physics scientists who go on to hold high level positions in various sectors (chemistry, environment, cosmetics, energy, and automobile, aeronautical, pharmaceutical and so on).
The Graduate Diploma in Science provides an opportunity for graduates to upgrade or extend their qualifications in a field of study not covered in depth in their undergraduate studies. Study programs are designed to meet the candidate's interests and academic background and involve a combination of course work selected from a chosen field of study.
The Master of Scientific Studies is designed to provide specialised training in a specific field of study. The degree involves advanced level course work study in selected areas plus a thesis embodying the results of an approved research project.
ENSCBP trains Food Scientists in the Food Science and Technology department who go on to hold high level positions in the Food industry.
The Brewing and Distilling MSc and Diploma are the only postgraduate brewing and distilling courses in the UK and they enjoy a distinguished reputation among industrialists and academics. Candidates are prepared for entry into the industry or to conduct research.
The programme gives students scientific and technological knowledge needed in process industry, e.g. in pulp and paper, chemical and metallurgical industry.
This programme aims to meet the needs of the fine chemicals, cosmetics, biomaterial, polymers, surface coatings and colorant industries for well-trained, enthusiastic employees having a breadth of practical and academic skills at an advanced level, providing you with advance knowledge and research skills in colour science and in the theory, application and analysis of polymers, fine chemicals and colorants.
