Do you love both chemistry and computing? Why choose between them? Modern chemistry relies on the latest computer technologies to address global challenges facing the environment and human society. Join a University ranked first in the UK for Chemistry research (THE analysis of REF 2021) with an excellent reputation for teaching and learning (UK top ten for Chemistry, Guardian University Guide 2023). The MSci Chemistry with Computing course combines study of the structure and synthesis of matter with development of computational and data analysis skills. It creates a new kind of scientist, one with a firm foundation in chemistry, a sound appreciation of computing and data analysis, and an understanding of what can be achieved by combining them. The course offers a unique combination of units and projects, incorporating coding, machine learning and high-performance computing, as well as fundamental concepts in inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, and applications in analytical, environmental, materials and theoretical chemistry. In this degree programme, state-of-the-art computational methods are taught through examples drawn from the physical sciences; we call this 'scientific computing'. Our MSci course is suited to you if you want to gain a solid foundation for a career in coding, scientific computing, data analysis, the chemical industry or research. You will learn to design experiments, interpret results and apply computing skills to problems in chemistry. You will also take units in mathematics, develop your communication and presentation skills, and work on group projects, researching and addressing problems faced in different sectors. The course builds toward an independent research project. You will collaborate with our leading academics and their research teams who are experts in computing and in chemistry to address a current problem in chemistry. For example, you may consider global warming, antibiotic resistance or improve the fundamental understanding of chemical reactions. We have one of the biggest groups of computational chemists in the country. Units will be taught by experts in fundamental chemistry, computational chemistry, scientific computing and research software engineering; the application of computing skills in chemistry will be emphasised throughout the chemistry units.
