Chemistry

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Chemistry is a category of physical science that deals with the structure, composition, and various properties of matter. Some topics which chemistry aims to cover include the formation of chemical bonds, properties of atoms, and the intermolecular forces responsible for giving matter its unique properties.

UK, United Kingdom is more than 300 years old and comprises four constituent nations: England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The UK has been a centre of learning for the past 1,000 years and possesses many ancient and distinguished universities. Foreign students make up a significant proportion of the student body at UK universities.

Top Masters Programs in Chemistry in the United Kingdom. What does Science for Energy and Sustainability at the UvA have to offer me? Science for Energy and Sustainability (SES) is an interdisciplinary 'track' or specialisation within the UvA Master's programmes Chemistry and Physics. It combines ‘hard’ scientific research with the analysis of societal issues, business models and government regulations. The programme covers a broad area of hot topics, such as: - bio-based economy - green chemistry - photophysical and photochemical energy conversion - biosolar cells and catalysis for sustainable synthesis and energy conversion. SES is an outward-looking programme, geared towards the cutting edge of energy and sustainability research. It gives you the skills and knowledge to move from understanding the state-of-the-art, to actually developing new sustainable technologies that can be implemented in society. Is Science for Energy and Sustainability at the UvA for me? It is , if you: - are interested in both physics and chemistry - want to become (more) aware of the scientific, technological and societal challenges for our future - want to learn how to advance renewable energy resources, promote sustainable development, and use resources more efficiently - want to study the development of technological solutions to global energy and sustainability problems, as well as the societal context of global developments in this field - want to pursue a career that focuses on developing sustainable solutions to our current pressing global situation with regard to energy, climate and sustainability. Courses The programme has a course load of 60 EC, all of which take place in the first year. Your courses will be carefully chosen in consultation with the programme manager. The following courses are compulsory: - Current Sustainable Energy Technologies (6 EC) - Project Sustainable Future (6 EC) - Academic Skills courses (6 EC in total) Besides these core courses, four restricted choice courses (24 EC) are required. For example: - Green Chemistry (6 EC) - Biosolar Cells (6 EC) - Environmental Chemistry (6 EC) - Heterogeneous Catalysis (6 EC) - Catalysis for Sustainable Energy (6 EC) - Homogeneous Catalysis (6 EC) - more physics-related courses (such as Photovoltaics, Nuclear Fusion/Fission, Photosynthesis for Energy) - more society-related courses (such as Bio-based Economy, Management of Sustainable Innovation) In addition, 18 EC of free choice can be used to fulfil specific requirements, e.g. for advanced courses or deficiencies. Thesis and research project The second year of the programme consists of: - a literature thesis (12 EC) - a research project (48 EC) You conduct your research project within one of the track's participating research groups, at another university (in the Netherlands or abroad), or in industry. It is concluded with a Master's thesis, which you present during a colloquium. [-]

Master in Chemistry

Research Degrees: MSc, MPhil, PhD

Background

Chemistry in Aberdeen has been recognised as a subject in its own right since 1793, making this one of the oldest Chemistry Departments in the country.

The Department occupies the Meston Building, adjacent to the medieval centre of the University campus, and is well equipped for research in all branches of Chemistry. The Department's main areas of specialisation are in Materials Chemistry (ceramics, glasses, zeolites, polymers, liquid crystals, catalysts, novel electrical materials), Organic Chemistry, Environmental/Analytical Chemistry and computational Chemistry. Recent appointments have enabled us to strengthen our work in catalysis and surface science environmental and analytical chemistry and organic synthesis. This summer we will open a new laboratory facility which houses the biodiscovery centre.... [-]

Master in Environmental Analytical Chemistry

The MSc programme in Environmental Analytical Chemistry focuses on specialisation in advanced modern analytical methodology to face challenges in environmental, pharmaceutical, oil & gas industry and other related industry in R&D. A particular focus is on the use of NMR and elemental & molecular mass spectrometry for the identification and quantification of small biomolecules in complex mixtures at trace level.

Most biochemical and environmental questions can nowadays only be answered by genetics and metabolomics. Here this course focuses on the latter, i.e. the determination of molecules in biological and environmental samples using spectroscopic and mass spectrometric methods.... [-]
