About this course

Train as a chemist for the industries of the future. This 4-year degree combines computational skills with traditional chemistry - an emerging specialism that is highly valued by employers in industry.

Advances in data science and machine learning have paved the way for the digitisation of chemistry, a process that allows us to find new products and commercialise technology faster, and at less cost. 

This combined honours programme will put you at the forefront of research within this new, combined discipline, allowing you to develop the skills necessary to pursue careers across chemical industries and data science. 

On this computational chemistry degree, you'll: 

  • study core principles of modern chemistry
  • gain practical training in programming, modelling and data analysis 
  • use our modern equipment and laboratories 
  • experience a range of modelling and computational approaches, including an extended project

Our digital chemistry course is designed by academics whose research supports industries ranging anywhere from pharmaceuticals and defence, to engineering and software development. You'll be able to apply the skills you learn to the industry of your chosen career.

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).
