Why choose this course?
This degree is for those who have an interest in chemistry and a desire to explore the frontline of science. This programme combines chemistry with green nanotechnology in order to solve a wide range of issues.
Chemistry is central to science and the chemical industry is the UK’s largest manufacturing export sector. The transitions from an oil based economy to a bio based one in order to develop a truly sustainable manufacturing industry is reliant largely upon new technologies such as green chemistry and nanotechnology green nanotechnology looks at unique way in which technology can benefit the environment.
Nanotechnology enables us to manipulate matter at the molecular and atomic level and this degree reflects the very latest developments in this field. In modern times nanotechnology has become increasingly important. It has many uses from developing solutions for environmental sustainability to medical applications. This is a rapidly growing field which has enormous economic, social and environmental beneﬁts and oﬀers excellent career opportunities.
You can also choose to study this course as a foundation year BSc (Hons) Chemistry with Green Nanotechnology (4 years including foundation year).
