Masters degrees in Organometallic Chemistry offer advanced training in the techniques used to understand reactions between organic compounds and metals.
Taught MSc courses and research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes are available in this field. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree, such as Chemistry, Chemical Engineering of Biotechnology.
These courses tend to focus on the chemistry of compounds containing, and the reactions involving, metal-carbon bonds. In particular, you will learn to develop new bonds in organic compounds in order to produce new products, though synthesis and analysis.
Through activities such as laboratory research, bioinformatics and 3D modelling, you will learn to predict the product of given reaction conditions and their structures. Methodologies in molecular biology are thus explored through both theoretical and instrumental investigation.
There are many industrial applications which your expertise would be suited to. You could work at the forefront of the latest technology for innovations in areas such as nuclear or renewable energy, nanotechnology and product design in various industries. Others roles may include work in agriculture, environmental protection services, or domestic utilities.
This course will extend your existing knowledge of chemical engineering to provide you with advanced chemical engineering and process technology skills for exciting and challenging careers in the chemical and related process industries.
You’ll develop advanced knowledge in key areas such as reaction engineering, product development, process modelling and simulation, and pharmaceutical formulation or energy technology.
The course has been designed to provide a greater depth of knowledge in aspects of advanced chemical engineering and a range of up-to-date process technologies. These will enable you to design, operate and manage processes and associated manufacturing plants, and to provide leadership in innovation, research and development and technology transfer.
This course will build upon your existing scientific/engineering knowledge and skills to convert to a specialisation in chemical engineering. This MSc course will provide you with chemical engineering and process technology skills for exciting and challenging careers in the chemical and related process industries.
The course has been designed to provide a depth of knowledge in core and aspects of advanced chemical engineering and a range of up-to-date process technologies. These will enable you to design, operate and manage processes, and associated manufacturing plants, and to provide leadership in innovation, research and development, and technology transfer.
You’ll undertake a large research project and study a series of compulsory taught modules covering: chemical engineering principles; chemical process technology; chemical reaction processes, separation processes; plant design; batch process engineering; and chemical products design and development.
