Recent advances in molecular science allow us to make, measure and model materials with unprecedented accuracy. This presents an opportunity to engineer better materials and molecular systems, responding to today's challenges.
First, you will gain a grounding in the science and engineering aspects of this field. This includes designing, making, manufacturing, modelling, characterising and measuring the performance of molecules and materials. Scales will range from an atomic scale to systems level. You will gain valuable experience of working on cross-disciplinary research. Your sponsored industrial placement forms a key part of this.
This internationally unique course has been developed by the Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering, in collaboration with partners in industry. The student cohort typically comprises graduates from chemical engineering or chemistry degrees, as well as students with backgrounds in materials science and engineering, physics, bioengineering and other STEM subjects. The course will appeal to those with post-degree experience who are looking to upskill in modern research methodologies and accelerated innovation strategies.
This Molecular Engineering MRes course offered at Imperial College London will provide you with the with fundamental and applied skills for a multi-disciplinary PhD or career in industry. When you graduate, you will be well-placed to pursue other STEM-related opportunities. For example, in policy, science communication, consultancy, and technology translation.
