Science Honours

Chemistry

The Chemistry Honours program gives students the opportunity to get involved in a research program in an area that is of interest to them. It provides training in research techniques and experience using modern research instrumentation. The Honours program adds a new dimension to the skills that the students have acquired during their undergraduate years and enhances their immediate employment prospects and, more significantly, their future career potential. All students with a sound record in chemistry are encouraged to apply for entry to the Honours program.

The Honours program

The School of Chemistry offers a wide range of possible projects in all areas of contemporary chemistry including computational and theoretical chemistry, chemical education, molecular design and synthesis, materials chemistry, green chemistry and renewable energy, molecular spectroscopy and photonics, drug discovery and medicinal chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, biological chemistry/chemical biology, soft matter and neutron and synchrotron diffraction and spectroscopy.

Workload and assessment

In the Honours year, each student undertakes a research project under the supervision of a member of staff, attends a series of lectures aimed at developing generic skills, and attends research seminars. At the culmination of the research year, the student presents a seminar and a thesis which explains the problem, outlines the research undertaken and the results obtained.
