Chemistry at the University of Bradford has recognised the importance of these emerging technologies and has invested heavily in staff and expertise. In such a fast-paced sector it is important that a materials chemist receives a learning experience that is at the forefront of the discipline.
Our materials chemists are leading on the development of exciting projects in functional polymers for the detection of bacteria, the use of nanomaterials in drug delivery and the use of novel molecular organic frameworks for hydrogen storage.
The materials chemistry curriculum has been designed around a solid understanding of the fundamental science, and an appreciation of the exciting applications possible with these new materials.
During the first two years, you will develop a sound understanding of theoretical and practical aspects of chemistry, with core content delivered across the traditional areas of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry.
To give you an intellectually fulfilling experience our chemistry courses allow you to take 20 credits of elective modules in stages 1 and 2, with subjects offered from across the university’s teaching portfolio such as mathematics, engineering, economics and more.
