Course content

This course is part of the EPSRC Catalysis Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT). The universities of Bath, Bristol and Cardiff work closely together to train and educate based on the distinctive but complementary areas of expertise within Chemistry and Chemical Engineering from the three institutions.

The CDT will allow postgraduates to develop an advanced knowledge of traditional and emerging catalysis disciplines, an understanding of industry and global contexts plus research and professional skills.

The first year is a Master of Research (MRes) qualification, during which you will spend time at all three universities, before deciding on which area of catalytic chemistry or engineering to specialise in during your research project.
