Course details

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. 
Applications for the 2019 intake of MRes students will soon be open. If interested please see our page for more information and how to apply:

Watch: How the MRes can benefit you.

The MRes in Molecular Science and Engineering is an innovative, one-year course designed to create a new generation of 'multilingual' scientists and engineers who can work seamlessly between traditional academic disciplines. Graduates who can work effectively within the exciting and ever-expanding field of molecular science and engineering are increasingly in-demand, to help tackle pressing problems in society.
