Course Summary

There is a growing need by industry for staff trained in computational molecular sciences. This new multidisciplinary MSc will teach simulation tools used in a wide range of applications, including catalysis and energy materials, nanotechnology and drug design, and will provide skills transferable to other fields, thereby broadening employment prospects. Students will gain detailed knowledge and skills in molecular modelling, focusing on the state-of-the art simulation techniques employed to research the molecular level properties that determine the macroscopic behaviour of matter. They will also gain key research skills and will learn the basic concepts in business and entrepreneurship as applied to high-tech industries.

This multidisciplinary programme offers a wide range of options, thereby enabling each student to tailor the programme to their own needs and interests. There are increasing career opportunities in the field of molecular modelling in sectors including sustainable energy, catalysis, nanotechnology, biomedical materials and pharmaceuticals. This MSc will train students in the skills necessary for future employment in the industrial and public sector communities, together with specific training in career development and transferable skills.
