Course summary

Warwick's Analytical and Polymer Science MSc is a unique course combining Warwick's world leading expertise in these two complementary areas. Warwick is highly ranked within the UK league tables, and is 61st in the world (QS World University Rankings 2022). This course has been designed for those looking to undertake a PhD or career in analytical sciences. Course overview The fundamentals of polymer synthesis and properties will be introduced, but then special focus is placed on modern instrumentation and analytical methods used for polymer and materials characterisation. You will receive advanced knowledge from experts within academia and collaborating companies. Gaining hands-on experience in a variety of relevant techniques will enable you to work in any modern laboratory because the skills you acquire will be readily transferable between disciplines. You will also undertake a cutting-edge project with a world-leading research group. When you graduate, you will be well positioned to take up employment in research and development roles within a number of sectors, or to progress to PhD study. You can find out more about the Department of Chemistry by joining our Webinars. Dr Remzi Becer is the head of the MSc in Analytical and Polymer Science. Please contact [email protected] with any Chemistry specific department questions, where course directors Dr Nikola Chmel and Dr Remzi Becer are available to discuss any queries.
