The first course of its kind to be accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry, the MSc in Green Chemistry and Sustainable Industrial Technology is designed to equip you with the necessary skills in green chemistry and green chemical technology to prepare you for a range of different careers in research, process development, environmental services, manufacturing, law, consultancy and government.
Delivered via a combination of lectures, workshops and seminars, the MSc programme lasts for 12 months. In addition to academic experts in the field, lectures are also given by external visitors from related industries, ensuring that the course content is both up to date and relevant. There is often the opportunity for site visits to relevant workplaces.
Students are given a unique opportunity to solve current and real industrial problems by undertaking a core six-month projects carried out during the latter part of the course with industrial partners or other organisations.
