This masters degree may be undertaken in a project or thesis mode.
RMIT's primary research activities are conducted within these related research centres:
The School of Science's researchers have a demonstrated record of success in collaborations, funding and research publications.
You will work with researchers who are past and present winners of ARC Future Fellowships and DECRA's, the AGR Matthey Gold medal for outstanding contribution in the field of applied gold chemistry, the RK Murphy Medal for Industrial Chemistry, the Silver Jubilee Medal of the Chromatographic Society, London, the CLRI Padmabhushan Dr Y Nayudamma Chemcon Distinguished Speaker Award (awarded by the Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers).
The majority of research staff are Members and Fellows of professional societies including: the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering, the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), UK, and the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI).
In the 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia assessments we were ranked at 'well above world standard' for physical chemistry and 'above world standard' for analytical chemistry.
The minimum requirements for admission to a master by research program are:
At RMIT a grade of credit represents academic achievement of 60% or higher.
