This module will introduce students to the three broad employment areas for chemistry: research, teaching or industrial positions. The lecture portion will cover fundamental aspects of being a professional chemist including safety, report writing, project management, and teaching skills. Students will then spend 60 hours with research faculty, on an industrial field trip or serving as a teacher's aide. Assessment will be by coursework, continuing reports on their project, and a final oral and written report.
This module will advance students¿ studies in Physical Chemistry, exploring the further interpretation of chemical thermodynamics and applying this to surfaces and electrochemical processes. The module will build on existing understanding, further developing mathematical skills to explore the material covered in this module. In the laboratory students will undertake more advanced investigative experiments to explore the physical concepts. The module will be assessed by coursework (laboratory experiments, presentations and assessed workshops) and by examination. Material, techniques and skills covered in the course of this module will build on and therefore require understanding of all prior modules.
