MSc in Green Chemistry and Sustainable Industrial Technology
University of York
A one-year masters course offered by the Department of Chemistry at the University of York is run in collaboration with the Chemical, Pharmaceutical and related industries. It is the first course of its kind to be accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry. The MSc is designed to equip you with the necessary skills in green chemistry and green chemical technology to prepare you for a range of different careers in research, process development, environmental services, law, consultancy and government. There is increasing pressure in industry for companies to become more sustainable by developing environmentally friendly products, minimising waste, using renewable resources, and to maintain cleaner processes throughout. As a graduate of an MSc in Green Chemistry and Sustainable Industrial Technology, you would be well placed to fulfill a variety of roles within this global demand for greener and more sustainable chemicals and processes.
Green and Sustainable Chemistry MSc
University of Nottingham
Chemistry is often viewed as demanding in its need for energy and natural resources. We have to ensure that Chemistry is safe, efficient and, above all, sustainable – Chemistry that is benign by design. Sustainability is an issue facing the entire global chemicals industry, our vision is to train a new generation of scientists to find innovative “green” resource and energy efficient solutions that:
- have the lowest possible environmental impact
- demonstrate social responsibility
- make a positive contribution to economic growth
This one-year course builds upon our international track record in green chemistry, particularly in the fields of synthetic chemistry, catalysis, new technologies, materials science, process engineering and entrepreneurship. Course material covers all aspects of modern Green and Sustainable Chemistry including feedstocks, energy, sustainable synthesis (including biocatalysis) and industrial process design. Formal lectures are complemented by a 60 credit project based in our world-leading research laboratories and designed to reinforce and apply many of the concepts delivered during lectures. This MSc programme is highly interdisciplinary. It capitalises on strong established links between Chemistry, the Faculty of Engineering, and the Nottingham Business School to provide both breadth and depth in the scope of the MSc degree.
Master en Quimica Sostenible
University of Zaragoza
This is a one-year course (60 ECTS credits) run at the Faculty of Sciences at the University of Zaragoza. It is run in Spanish by specialized lecturers from 9 Departments giving a multi-disciplinary approach (focusing on Chemistry, but also including Economics, Toxicology, Legislation, and Renewable Energies). The course is mainly directed at graduates in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering, though it is also open to other closely-related graduates. The course is designed with two aims for the students: work in Industry and Academic Research. The completion of a research project (18 ECTS credits), carried out in either a Chemical Industry or a Research Laboratory or a bibliographic work, is required.
MRes in Green Chemistry: Energy and the Environment
Imperical College London
This is a one-year course offered by Imperical College London and is designed to introduce postgraduate students to all aspects of sustainable chemical practices, with nine months dedicated to a research project in a green chemistry area. Both the taught and research components will be multi-disciplinary in nature with input from several world class departments from Imperial (including Chemical Engineering, Biology and Environmental Policy), and the course content will include components as diverse as Green Chemistry, Renewable Energy, Biotechnology and Environmental Legislation. The course will also feature a sizeable contribution from the Chemical Industry, including guest speakers and project supervision.
MSc in Chemical Research (Green Chemistry with Industry)
University of Leicester
Applications are invited from outstanding students for a funded position on the MSc in Chemical Research (Green Chemistry with Industry). This course, which is funded through core CTA funding to the University of Leicester, provides masters-level training and includes industrial experience in the green chemistry sector.
1st year Master of Science: Chemistry, Specializing in Green Chemistry
University Louis Pasteur
Green chemistry is a chemistry for a sustainable global future. This new field includes applying a set of principles to reduce or eliminate the use or production of hazardous or toxic substances in the design, manufacture and use of products from the chemical industry. A one year course based at The University Louis Pasteur (Strasbourg I).
Master of Chemistry and EST
Université de Savoie
The Specialty Chemicals, Environment, Sustainable Development (CESD) Master of Chemistry and ESTs is for all students wishing to move to new careers in environmental and sustainable development. It aims to train senior managers and researchers. It has two training courses: - DRIM (Diagnosis of Risk and Environmental Management) - Source (Synthèse, Tools, and Reactivity in Chemistry for the Environment). Based at the Université de Savoie.
MSc Degree in Green Chemistry and Clean Technologies
University of Patras
The program aims are the education and training of graduates in the philosophy and the tools of Green Chemistry and their application in the design of environmentally friendly products and processes, using clean technologies, for sustainability.
MSc Double Degree in Environmental and Sustainable Chemical Technologies
The main objective of the Double Degree is to integrate the different competences and specificities of the courses of Environment Univerza v Novi Gorici, Slovenia (UNG) and Sustainable Chemistry and Technology Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, Italy (Ca’ Foscari). The UNG Environment course is distinctly interdisciplinary and research-oriented. Important fields of Environmental Sciences are covered, such as water, air and soil pollution. The UNG programme contains courses regarding measuring techniques for the identification and the control of pollution, waste treatment, physical, biological, and health effects of pollution, legislative, economical, and managing aspects of the environmental protection. The Ca’ Foscari programme as well is oriented towards research and offers advanced courses regarding all the main fields of Chemistry, together with specific courses describing the actual challenges of the chemical sciences applied to sustainability, environment, pollution, renewable energy sources and green syntheses. The aim of the double degree is to offer Ca’ Foscari students an insight in the Environmental Sciences, making them all aware of the deep interactions existing between Chemistry and Environment.
