Description

Advertisement

The Master in Chemistry provides advanced training in the areas of analytical chemistry, materials chemistry, mineral chemistry, organic and bio-organic chemistry, and physical chemistry. Using modern laboratory techniques, students learn to synthesise new molecules which can be used in industry and other sectors. The programme also provides training in areas such as spectroscopy and computational chemistry, and provides students with the expertise required to develop methods for identifying new substances. Students also do a work placement in a chemistry laboratory and write a comprehensive final research paper.
