Chemistry - Teesside University

**Summary**: Chemistry is essential in modern society. The electronics at the heart of your mobile phone, the fibre optics which bring you high-speed broadband, most of the fabrics and dyes in the clothes you wear – none of these would exist without a thorough understanding of the chemical properties of substances. You can complete an optional work placement year. **Course details**: Teesside University is located in the North East of England - home to some of the most advanced chemical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in the world. The employment-focused nature of this degree takes full advantage of the industries in our region to develop the skills and knowledge that employers seek in chemistry graduates. **After the course**: In addition to a solid grounding in chemistry, a chemistry degree provides you with a range of skills, such as numeracy, data handling and analysis, teamwork and problem solving, which are highly valued by employers.
