Chemistry with Scientific Computing - University of Bristol

Do you love both chemistry and computing? There's no need to choose between them. Modern chemistry relies on the latest computer technologies to address global challenges facing the environment and human society. Our MSci Chemistry with Scientific Computing combines study of the structure and synthesis of matter with development of computational and data analysis skills. It creates a new kind of scientist – one with a firm foundation in chemistry, a sound appreciation of scientific computing and an understanding of what can be achieved by combining them. The course offers a unique combination of units and projects, incorporating coding, machine learning and high-performance computing, as well as fundamental concepts in inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, and applications in analytical, environmental, materials and theoretical chemistry. Our MSci course is suited to you if you want to gain a solid foundation for a career in coding, scientific computing, the chemical industry or research. You will learn to design experiments, interpret results and apply computing skills to problems in chemistry. You will also take units in communications and mathematics and work on group projects, researching and addressing problems faced in different sectors. The course builds toward an independent research project. You will collaborate with our leading academics and their research teams, who are experts in computing and in chemistry, to address a current problem in chemistry. For example you may consider global warming, antibiotic resistance or fundamental understanding of chemical reactions. We are the UK’s only chemistry-based Centre for Excellence in Teaching in Learning, and are ranked third in the UK for chemistry research (Times Good University Guide 2019). We have one of the biggest groups of computational chemists in the country. Units will be taught be taught by experts in fundamental chemistry, computational chemistry, scientific computing and research software engineering; the application of computing skills in chemistry will be emphasised throughout the chemistry units.
