This unit is intended for students studying the Master of Applied Science (Chemistry) and will be related to a research topic selected by the candidate and the Unit Coordinator. For more information regarding this unit consult the Unit Coordinator.
This unit involves the investigation, analysis and writing of a major project report related to a chemical principle. Students will develop the ability to identify important points of the topic of interest and perform a critical assessment of the ideas. Students choose the area of investigation in consultation with the unit coordinator and then are assigned an academic supervisor with expertise in the chosen area. The project report takes the form of a literature review of the industry/enterprise/topic. For further details on this unit, contact the Degree Coordinator.
