Course summary

Heterogeneous catalysis is a key enabler of the chemical industry from refinery to pharmaceuticals. The sectors within which this process has applications includes the pharmaceutical, research and commercial product development, manufacturing and sustainable energy sectors (such as Biodiesel). This programme is designed to give students the practical skills to undertake independent research in heterogeneous catalysis and to supply a thorough theoretical understanding of industrial heterogeneous catalysis. Previous knowledge of catalysis is not required.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • The University of Glasgow has a long tradition of research in Heterogeneous Catalysis. Over the years this has developed and grown, and we now have a Centre for Catalysis Research that is one of the most up-to-date, well-equipped units in the UK.
  • We have research programmes covering: new catalytic materials, petrochemicals, fine chemicals, energy, fuels and catalyst deactivation.
  • The two projects will have two supervisors: one University of Glasgow academic staff and the second ex-industry honorary University of Glasgow staff.
  • To further enhance this programme, it is intended to build it around a series of short courses that will be accessible to industry.

CAREER PROSPECTS

The two main career paths for students would be further study for a PhD or move into the chemical industry. The programme would give students the skills, both practical and theoretical, to undertake a PhD. The programme would also equip students to work in any aspect of the chemical industry. Students will gain analytical skills in terms of data analysis, interpretation of published work and practical methodologies. They will also understand where heterogeneous catalysis fits into facilitating the chemical industry allowing them to rapidly fulfill plant support, research, QA and QC roles.

Job titles after completion of this programme are varied, from Research Project Manager, Chemical Engineer, to Research Chemist. This programme also prepares those seeking a career in academia or research and development.
