Masters in Research
Join a global community of world leading researchers and enjoy invaluable networking opportunities through our professional development programme.
Welcome to the MRes in Molecular Science and Engineering
The course is taught by world-class researchers from several Imperial departments, and includes a six-month industry-focused research project. In this way, students obtain a unique, transdisciplinary and collaborative research education, and graduates are equipped with an unparalleled perspective – as well as a set of fundamental and applied skills – as they embark on their future careers.
The course is particularly relevant to:
- Scientists wanting to focus on the practical applications of their research.
- Engineers wanting to better understand the fundamentals of molecular science.
- Students wanting to gain practical experience in industry.
