CM4028: HONOURS CHEMISTRY RESEARCH PROJECT (2017-2018)

Last modified: 16 Nov 2016 18:26


Course Overview

The final-year research project for BSc Honours students extends over both half-sessions and affords the opportunity to learn modern research techniques and to develop some expertise in the topic of the project. As far as possible, projects are allocated in accordance with student preferences.  Every project has a named supervisor and there is considerable scope for students to use their initiative in experimental design and interpretation of results. The development of a variety of transferrable skills is an important feature of this module, including project planning, presentation of results, time management, report writing and verbal communication.
