|Subject Overview:|| |
The subject is designed to introduce students to independent original research; to further develop practical skills; to train the student to use the chemical literature; to train the student in the art of assessing the results obtained; and to develop written and oral communication skills.
At the completion of the subject, the student should comprehend the importance of a critical review of work already published in the field; the necessity for careful planning of the research work; and the importance of accurate observation and recording of data.
Students will carry out a short chemical investigation under the direction of a School of Chemistry staff member. Each student will be required to prepare and deliver both a written and an oral report on the investigation.
|Assessment:||A written report of no more than 1500 words due at the end of the semester (60%); supervisor assessment of demonstrated research potential (30%); oral presentation of no more than 15 minutes duration at the end of semester (10%). Satisfactory performance in each of these assessment components is necessary to pass the subject.|
