Course Overview

An extended research project is the final part of the Oil and Gas Chemistry course. Students will carry out an individual research project using the knowledge and skills gained in first part of the degree to investigate a topic relating to the oil and gas sector. We aim to provide project placements in industry locally in and around Aberdeen. Each project is supervised by both a University supervisor and the industrial placement supervisor to ensure academic quality. Projects may also be conducted at the University of Aberdeen in a research group, related to oil and gas chemistry topics.
