Course content

Catalysis lies at the heart of many chemical processes, from living systems to large-scale industrial reactors. By understanding and applying catalysts, we can make processes faster, cleaner and more sustainable. Specialists in catalysis are particularly sought after in industry, as more efficient processes can lead to less waste and cost savings.

Our MSc in Catalysis will provide you with a sound foundation in catalysis theory and its applications. We will explore three branches of catalysis – heterogeneous, homogeneous and biological – and you will be given the opportunity to specialise in the area you are most interested in. You will be trained to use a range of laboratory equipment and techniques for testing and characterising catalysts.
