Chemistry Honours Project F - CHEM4108

Year - 2020

Our understanding of Chemistry is continuously evolving as a consequence of chemical research. This unit provides training in research techniques in chemistry and experience with modern state of the art research instrumentation with an emphasis on developing advanced chemical knowledge under the supervision and mentorship of an experienced researcher. The unit adds a new dimension to the skills that you have acquired during your undergraduate years. Each student will identify a hypothesis in an area of contemporary chemistry and in collaboration with their supervisor design and undertake a research project to test the hypothesis. The results of the project will be communicated through written tasks and oral presentation culminating in an Honours thesis. Successful completion of the unit will demonstrate that you have mastered significant research and professional skills for a future career and may lead to the opportunity to proceed to a postgraduate degree.
