Comments about BSc Chemistry and Mathematics - At the institution - Sheffield - South Yorkshire

  • Objectives
    This course explores the application of mathematics to problems faced by chemists. Demand for physical scientists with a strong mathematical background is on the increase, and this course is designed to appeal to students who wish to develop both strengths. The first three years provide a broad-based education in the main topics within chemistry and maths. The four-year course builds on this foundation, and offers more advanced work and a strong element of research-based laboratory experience.
