Studying at the University has not only exposed me to interesting research opportunities, but has greatly facilitated networking amongst academic and industrial contacts as well. The main highlight of my studies has been publishing a detailed review paper finally explaining a reaction that has been widely used yet misunderstood for over 100 years! I’ve also developed an automatic phosphate monitoring system that can run for weeks to months at a time using alcohol and UV light. Edward Nagul
Chemistry is an essential component in how we understand and progress almost every sphere of science, and a vital tool in the technologies of the future, from renewable energies through to new medical breakthroughs.
The Master of Science (Chemistry) pairs high levels of specialised teaching and learning together with professional skills training options to equip students with both scientific and business acumen. Our academic staff members are world leaders in areas such as molecular analysis, drug discovery, materials science, sustainable energy and nanotechnology, and our students contribute to this research, and further build upon the interdisciplinary links within the University and with local and international research institutes.
Students in the Master of Science (Chemistry) who have a weighted average mark of 80% or higher in the prerequisite undergraduate major, are eligible for consideration for the Graduate Research Program in Science. This is a five-year course of study comprising the Master of Science and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). Find out more.
