MRes Catalysis in Chemistry and Engineering
Imperial College London, United Kingdom
Catalysis underpins a huge range of modern chemical transformations. From the megaton scale production of acetic acid to the polymers we use for plastics, and from automotive catalytic converters to key steps in pharmaceutical synthesis, the impact of catalysis upon our everyday life is enormous.
It has been estimated that around 90% of all chemical products produced on a commercial scale involve catalysis, and that catalytic processes lead to approximately £550 billion of products.
It is embraced as a ‘green technology’ as it can limit waste and improve selectivity as well as provide re-use of the catalytic agent itself.
Since the landmark achievements of Nobel laureate Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson in catalysis, Imperial has been known internationally as a centre for catalysis research, and this tradition continues today with over 30 members of the Chemistry and Chemical Engineering departments active in the area.
Companies such as BP, INEOS, Sasol, Johnson Matthey, Pfizer and AstraZeneca all have research and development facilities in the UK. Researchers from many of these companies will deliver taught elements of this course, and therefore you will have the opportunity to learn from and network with future employers first hand.
Catalysis has traditionally been divided into homogenous (solution-based), heterogeneous (solid-liquid, solid-gas interface) and (reaction) engineering disciplines. However this distinction is becoming increasingly blurred, so this MRes course aims to provide you with a coherent overview of all these areas.
While the course will be run through the Chemistry Department, close ties will be maintained with Chemical Engineering as well as ensuring contact with industry through lectures on the course and invited seminars.

MRes Climate Change Adaptation (Part Time) (online)
University of Strathclyde, United Kingdom
The MRes in Climate Change Adaptation aims to provide advanced study of key issues related to climate change, and particularly around how infrastructure will need to adapt.
The course links with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) identified by the United Nations, and in particular the different indicators associated with SDG13 on Climate Action.
This course is designed to cater mainly for graduates with an engineering education, and employees of public and private sector companies who wish to upgrade their skills to be able to tackle the complex issues relating to the current climate crisis, circular economy goals, and the design of engineering options for mitigating environmental impacts and promoting sustainable development.
An MRes offers a unique and bespoke experience; you can tailor your studies to suit your own research interests and career objectives. The course is largely research and project-based but there is also a taught element to it. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has strong industrial links which contributes to the overall student experience, too. You'll be taught by an interdisciplinary group of professionally qualified civil engineers, environmental scientists, geoscientists, environmental impact assessors and modellers, and social scientists.
An MRes takes one year full-time or two years part-time to complete. While full-time study is available to UK and international students, part-time study on-campus is only available to students from the UK or EU. You can also study this course part-time through online Distance Learning, over 36 months, offering a flexible mode of study. Distance Learning is available to UK and international students.

MRes Advanced Practices
Goldsmiths, University of London, United Kingdom
The MRes in Advanced Practices responds to the growing importance of research within contemporary cultural production.
Professionals and practitioners, be they artists, curators, choreographers, organizers, or others, engage in research and look for ways to circulate it widely. This 'research turn' has been a marked shift in recent years and is increasing in the wake of Covid-19 since audience numbers can no longer be a sole criterion for activity.
The program in Advanced Practices provides graduate students with an opportunity to invent methodologies, reframe urgencies and reimagine the contexts in which our work is circulating.
Degrees are practice-driven, research-based, and can incorporate projects in progress, collaborations with organizations and platforms or be the opportunity to rethink the circulation and meaning of how and to whom work can communicate itself.
