Course content

Specialists in broad aspects of molecular science and engineering are increasingly in demand. Industries and research agencies need skilled scientists and engineers to work effectively and seamlessly together in order to tackle the challenges they face.

The Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering has launched a unique Master's of Research to train students in interdisciplinary collaborative research in this emerging and exciting field.

Rapid progress in our understanding of molecular science now allows us to make, measure and model materials with unprecedented accuracy. This presents a great opportunity to engineer better materials and molecular systems in response to the grand challenges faced by society.

This one-year full-time MRes course provides you with a systematic understanding of Molecular Science and Engineering and a critical awareness of the current challenges and research in the area.

The MRes is aimed at a broad intake of graduates from science and engineering backgrounds, providing advanced integration skills, as well as an understanding of multiple scales, from molecular interactions to whole systems.

Collaboration is embedded in the course through integrated coursework and extended research projects: you undertake industrial placements to gain a high-level perspective of the research challenge and its context.

This is followed by a three-month research project at Imperial, with close supervision by two academics from different departments.
