About this course

Master the skills required for the new generation of chemical industries. You’ll learn how to use computational modelling, artificial intelligence and the analysis of big data to solve complex chemistry problems. 

The chemical industries of today are being revolutionised by big data, automation and machine learning. 

This one-year MSc programme will position you at the forefront of these developments, giving you the skills required to succeed within a rapidly evolving sector. 

You’ll explore topics like: 

  • the theory and application of data science 
  • computational modelling techniques 
  • AI and machine learning approaches to modern chemical problems 

You’ll also develop skills in: 

  • programming in python  
  • software development 
  • analysing large and complex data sets 

You'll work with academic staff who are at the cutting edge of research in computational chemistry.  

This programme includes hands-on experience in modern facilities, which may include the University’s supercomputer Iridis 5, which can perform over a quadrillion calculations per second. 

Working with state of the art computational software and hardware is central to this programme, giving you the ability to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of modern approaches applicable to your own research or advanced scholarship.
