About Applied Chemistry
Masters degrees in Applied Chemistry examine the principals and theories of Chemistry, and train postgraduates to apply techniques to solve real-world problems.
Taught MSc programmes are typical in the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil courses may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree, such as Chemistry or a related science subject.
You will learn to investigate everyday issues, from human health and hygiene, through to consumerism and global warming. Training is provided in the means for developing experiment design, including error analysis, data processing and data presentation. Research techniques may be encouraged through individual projects or industry placements.
Training in this field can be applied to a range of commercial ventures and other social practices, such as food production, drug development, cosmetics, greenhouse gas solutions and much more.
Graduates typically work in sectors such as Forensic Science, Medical Chemistry, Archaeology, Agriculture and Pharma Industries. As such, roles are extremely varied and could include consultancy for SMEs (small/medium enterprises) and government bodies, frontline work in hospitals or on production lines, and even further research and teaching.
