CH4119 Chemistry Research and Data Analysis (25 ECTS)

In the final year the practical class consists of a full-time research project, during Semester 1, working with one of the research groups in the School of Chemistry and under the direct supervision of a member of staff of the School, or at an academic or industrial laboratory in Ireland or abroad. The project accounts for 20 credits and the results you obtain for your project will be combined with the mark you obtain in the problem-solving paper in your annual exams. The problem-solving paper is based on self-directed learning to develop a mature understanding of the fundamental chemical topics introduced over the entire period of the Moderatorship programme.
