Further information on descriptions Description: Aims:
To allow students to experience an in-depth, open-ended full-time practical research project typical of research in an academic environment. To further develop and reinforce the skills necessary for research work.

Learning Outcomes:
After studying the Unit, students should be able to:
* Demonstrate advanced experimental techniques appropriate to the chosen project, including independent use of sophisticated instrumentation appropriate to the research field;
* Work with minimal supervision and guidance;
* Work safely in a laboratory in a manner commensurate with current legislation;
* Record experimental observations and data in an efficient manner;
* Place and evaluate experimental results in the context of other researchers' work;
* Write an extended scientific report commensurate with a chosen journal style, with the potential for publication;
* Discuss and defend the conclusions drawn from the study in an oral examination;
* Demonstrate the ability to conduct and develop an experimental programme.

Skills:
Research Methods (T,F,A), Numeracy (F, A), Problem solving (T, F, A), Scientific writing (F, A), Independent working (F).

Content:
A research topic will be selected in conjunction with a supervising member of staff and a program of experimental work planned. .The content will project specific, but will entail advanced experimental methodology in either computational, synthetic or physical chemistry.
