Why study this course?

This course enables you to develop and further your knowledge with a range of core modules and select a materials engineering-led research project within one of our diverse range of research groups.

Throughout the course you'll study the functional roles of nanocomposites and inorganic solids, develop an understanding of the interplay between structure and observed properties, and explore investigation methods. You'll also study biomimetic and supramolecular approaches in materials chemistry.

Gain hands-on experience

As well as working and studying under the direction of world-leading pharmaceutical and medicinal science staff, you will gain hands-on experience of a variety of modern instrumentation, including multi-nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry (NMR), mass spectrometry, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC).

Academic staff

The Chemistry team is comprised of academic and support staff that are subject experts in organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry. Teaching and student satisfaction are very important to us and we have won awards and recognition for this aspect of our work.
