About this course

Train as a chemist for the industries of the future. This three-year degree combines traditional chemistry with computational skills – an emerging specialism that is increasingly valued by employers across a large range of fields.

Data science, AI and machine learning are allowing scientists to make discoveries and run experiments faster and at lower cost. On this degree you’ll gain the chemistry knowledge and computing skills you need to join this fast-growing field.

You don’t need previous computing knowledge, as your programming training will be tailored to your level. By the time you graduate you’ll be able to:

  • write your own programs
  • use state-of-the-art software to analyse big data
  • look at digital simulations of molecules in incredible detail

Southampton is one of just a few UK universities where you can study this subject to an advanced level. Here, you’ll study in bright, spacious and modern chemistry laboratories which have been recently refurbished.

You’ll learn from staff who are spearheading computational chemistry research. This includes researchers who are:

  • using AI and digital modelling to benefit society
  • improving renewable energy technologies
  • supporting research into disease treatments

We regularly review our courses to ensure and improve quality. This course may be revised as a result of this. Any revision will be balanced against the requirement that the student should receive the educational service expected. Find out why, when, and how we might make changes.

Our courses are regulated in England by the Office for Students (OfS).
