Our MSc Green Chemistry & Sustainable Industrial Technology is a one year full time course. It was the first course of its kind to be accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry. It is designed to equip you with the necessary skills in green chemistry and clean chemical technology to prepare you for a range of different careers in research, process development, environmental services, manufacturing, law, consultancy and government. Teaching is delivered by academic experts within the Department of Chemistry as well as external experts from other academic institutions and industry.
The taught component of the course is delivered via a mix of lectures, workshops, seminars and practical work. You will learn about the key principles of green chemistry and the importance of sustainable technology in a variety of areas. In addition to this, you will also have the opportunity to enhance your transferable skills. Assessment is varied including a closed exam, written assignments, presentations, practical work and posters. You will study four 20 credit taught modules:
- Principles of Green Chemistry
- Application of Green Chemistry
- Commercialisation of Green Chemistry
- Green Chemistry Transferable Skills
There is a substantial 100 credit research project that gives you an opportunity to work on real-life challenges faced by the chemical industry. You'll be able to choose from a range of project areas in order to carry out research in your area of interest. Projects will be supervised by an academic member of staff, and may also involve collaboration with industry. You will be allocated to Project Area Groups that correspond with larger research projects that are currently taking place within the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence.
Scholarships are available for this course to UK, EU and overseas students.
