This course is designed for scientists and engineers who wish to develop their skills in oilfield chemistry. 2013/14 entry free places available for Scottish/EU Students.
The involvement of industry in the design of the course and an industry-based project (limited number and subject to availability), maximise employment prospects. There is extensive opportunity for practical experience throughout the course. Students on the MSc Instrumental Analytical Science Oilfield Chemicals course will benefit from the use of modern analytical equipment, study visits, guest lecturers and workshops. Research activities within the University underpin the coursework.
The course is assessed by a number of different module specific methods, ranging from exams, coursework, presentation, Thesis compilation and oral defence.
