Subject Description
This subject is intended to introduce advanced chemistry students to modern chemical research. It provides an opportunity for student centred learning, allowing the student to connect the content of the conventional chemistry subjects they have already undertaken to cutting-edge chemical research. CHEM218 provides a first opportunity for undergraduate students to experience the excitement of working at the frontiers of science. The subject takes the form of a small research based project undertaken with the supervision of a member of staff and it may include research assistance, directed reading, computer-based studies and/or library assignments. Students should consult the subject coordinator and find a suitable project with a willing project supervisor prior to enrolling in CHEM218.


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Develop understanding of research methods as they pertain to the chemical sciences;
2. Develop laboratory skills in their chosen field of research;
3. Develop literature skills;
4. Prepare a literature review of the current state of research in their chosen field;
5. Prepare a written report of the findings of their own data.
