The Chemistry Department, based at Singleton Park Campus, has excellent, purpose-built laboratories ideal for students both at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Integration between the department and the College of Engineering, the Medical School and other departments in the College of Science provides an environment of research excellence. This allows students and staff to invent, innovate and develop products in a way that impacts on current global challenges.
The department delivers a modern chemistry curriculum with innovative teaching. Undergraduate students will learn from online pre-lab simulation, allowing more hands-on time in the lab.
Our degrees are in the process of being accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry. Students will get the opportunity to work on research projects with our active research team, gaining research skills that are in demand by employers.
Research interests include Energy, Health, New and Advanced Molecules and Materials; and Water and the Environment.
