Description

A series of modules of advanced study in contemporary research methodology in the chemical sciences, such as research and professional scientific communication skills including written, visual and oral communication; directed inquiry and problem solving; critical analysis and in-depth studies in modern chemical research. The learning outcomes of this course will enable students to develop a range of abilities that are relevant to research in the chemical sciences, including written and oral communication skills. Students will undertake studies in a specific specialised area of chemistry that will allow them to develop an in-depth understanding of an area of contemporary research. Enrolment in this course is limited to those Honours students concurrently enrolled in the CHEM480 Research Project (or a Chemistry Department based BCHM480 Research Project); or M.Sc. (Part I) or P.G. Dip. Sci. students based within the Chemistry Department during their programme of study. This is a required course for all students enrolled in these degree programmes.
