Course content

This taught MSc builds upon our international reputation for excellence in research and education in Electrochemistry by offering an advanced, postgraduate education in Electrochemistry and Battery Technologies from the fundamental principles through to applications in energy storage, energy conversion and Electrochemical Engineering. The programme provides opportunities for you to develop and demonstrate knowledge and understanding, qualities, skills and other attributes in these areas.

The MSc in Electrochemistry and Battery Technologies course aims to:

  • instil an enthusiasm for electrochemistry and battery science, an appreciation of their applications in different contexts and to involve you in an intellectually stimulating and satisfying experience of learning and studying;
  • establish an appreciation of the importance and sustainability of the chemical sciences in an industrial, academic, economic, environmental and social context;
  • develop, through an education in chemistry, a range of appropriate generic skills, of value in chemical and non-chemical employment;
  • extend your comprehension of key chemical concepts as applied to Electrochemistry and battery processes and so provide you with an in-depth understanding of this specialised area of chemistry;
  • provide you with the ability to plan and carry out experiments independently and assess the significance of outcomes;
  • develop your ability to adapt and apply methodology to the solution of unfamiliar types of problems;
  • instil a critical awareness of advances at the forefront of Electrochemistry and Battery Technologies;
  • prepare you effectively for professional employment or doctoral studies.
