Polymer and Biopolymer Science

This course trains graduates with a chemistry background specifically for a career as a polymer or biopolymer scientist. The course content reflects the renewed global interest in sustainably-derived polymers which are in increasing demand in applications including food and beverages, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, personal care, paints and inks. The course will equip you with the knowledge to understand the behaviour of both naturally occurring and synthetic water soluble polymers at the molecular level, and how this influences their bulk behaviour. Lectures are reinforced and expanded by study of real-life polymer systems in the laboratory.

Entry requirements

An honours degree with at least a 2:2 classification (or an equivalent qualification) in an appropriate chemistry discipline or relevant professional experience.

Assessment methods

Assessment of the taught modules is intended to allow the learner to demonstrate skills that cover the entire breadth of the programme aims - knowledge and understanding, key practical skills, intellectual skills in planning experiments/interpreting data and communication of information in writing and verbally. The research project is examined by a final dissertation.
