Course Details

Electrochemistry looks at the relationship between electricity and identifiable chemical change. At the Electrochemistry and Battery Technologies MSc course at the University of Southampton you’ll gain practical experience of electrochemical techniques and their use in sensors, batteries, fuel cells and other technologies. 

You’ll also study the principles of electrode reactions and learn the techniques to study electrochemical reactions and battery processes. 

You’ll graduate from this course with: 

  • in-depth knowledge of the use of chemical sciences in research, industry, the economy and the environment 
  • the skills to plan and carry out experiments, and analyse the results 
  • the ability to adapt and apply different methods to solve problems

Career Opportunities

  • Employability is about more than just getting a job. We believe in helping our students gain the necessary experience for a future career, along with the skills to identify opportunities and make the most of them. It is reassuring to know that Chemistry degrees are third only behind Medicine and Dentistry as the degree which offers the highest financial return over the term of the graduate's career, but the rewards of a Chemistry degree lie at a deeper personal level and not just in terms of financial return.
  • During your year here you will have the opportunity to broaden your options by meeting employers, getting involved in volunteering activities, work placements and much more.
  • A significant proportion of our graduates decide to go into research by taking a PhD qualification, most of them staying in Southampton. But careers in industry and commerce are available even in the toughest economic times.
