CM5906: INDUSTRIAL PHARMACEUTICAL CHEMISTRY - EXTENDED RESEARCH PROJECT (2021-2022)

Last modified: 31 May 2022 13:05


Course Overview

The final part of the Industrial Pharmaceutical Chemistry programme is an extended research project. An individual research project topic will be given to each student which will build upon the topics taught in earlier modules. Projects may be based at the University of Aberdeen or with an industrial partner. In the latter case, students will be supervised by both a University supervisor and placement supervisor. A variety of different projects types will be available including practical, theoretical and literature based. At the end of the project students will be expected to present findings in the form of a written thesis and through oral presentation.

Course Description

To gain experience in research applicable to Industrial Pharmaceutical Chemistry, students undertake a clearly defined project requiring literature reviewing, project design and definition, experimental activities, data processing and interpretation and reporting. The project should also provide the student with the opportunity for investigation and problem solving.

Projects will commence at the end of May/beginning of June and be completed by end of mid-August. All projects will involve supervised but independent research leading to the submission of a project dissertation for examination. Students will also give an oral presentation on the project experience. Students may be based within the University of Aberdeen or within an industrial setting.
