Advanced Practical Techniques and Skills

Module code: CH7361

In this module you will plan and carry out a variety of advanced practical procedures in preparative, analytical and physical chemistry. You will accurately observe experimental changes, record and analyse data, and, once completed, make scientific conclusions.

You will need to work effectively as an individual and in a group setting in order to solve practical problems and manage your time and resources effectively.

Safety will be a key concern during this module. You will need to evaluate the hazards and risks associated with laboratory work, performing risk assessments when necessary, and ensure that you work safely at all times.

This module will also test your report-writing ability. You will need to produce clear and concise scientific reports in a variety of different professional formats. These must be well researched and referenced. Plus, you must communicate all aspects of your practical work, including the background, results, critical analysis, experimental procedures and potential future work that may follow.

The skills gained during this module will be invaluable as you prepare to begin your research project.
