Candidates should hold a bachelor's degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials Science, Biochemistry or other degrees with a significant element of core chemistry; at a minimum classification of a 2:1 (or equivalent), or a 2:2 with two years relevant industrial experience.
Months of entry
We provide a unique Master’s education in Materials Chemistry, offering the opportunity to carry out a 12-month research project from a selection that covers all aspects of Materials Chemistry.
Optional modules enable you to gain specialist knowledge of core areas such as:
- supramolecular and nanochemistry
- polymer chemistry
- inorganic materials chemistry
Both synthesis and characterisation are integral to the teaching around these areas.
Materials Chemistry is a key multidisciplinary area, and a growth area for both academic and industrial research. Employment prospects in this area are excellent - the programme will prepare you for a career in industrial or academic research and development, or in production or manufacturing roles.
