Science & Technology

We’ll make all reasonable efforts to provide you with the courses, services and facilities described in this prospectus. However, if we need to make material changes, for example due to significant disruption, or in response to COVID-19, we’ll let our students know as soon as possible. The study resources contain several movies and videos to watch, books and articles to read, topics to research, and questions to sharpen your knowledge. We welcome students from a range of disciplinary backgrounds with a keen interest in the complex and rapidly evolving relationships between science, technology and society. Advice to the Prime Minister on how can help to address regional economic disparities across the UK and promote equality of opportunity. Computational results obtained using methods, parameters, or input data that are not adequately described in the manuscript or in the referenced literature are not acceptable for publication.

Alongside your core modules, you can choose options to broaden your horizons and tailor your course to your interests. This list gives you a flavour of our options, which are kept under review and may change, for example in response to student feedback or the latest research. Choose to study this course full time or part time, to fit around your work and personal life.

The specialist centres provide scientific services, consultancy and research specifically tailored to industry and academia. You should also consult the IOP ethical policy for journals for general guidance on compiling your reference list. You can find information on how to structure and format your references in the style guide for journal articles. Please note it is not necessary to format your references in the ways shown in the guidelines, however we find some authors like to have a style to work to.

Membrane science and technology is interdisciplinary and at the interface of materials science and engineering. It encompasses theory, selective molecular transport, materials science, manipulation of morphology, process design and engineering, membrane processes and applications in gas, vapor, and liquid separations. Membranes are also widely used in energy applications such as fuel cells, batteries, and electrolyzers. Synthetic membranes have become an indispensable tool in multiple aspects of modern life, from access to clean drinking water in water-stressed regions, to food processing and medical devices, to inerting fuel tanks in aircraft, to more sustainable and energy efficient processes.

The structure of a small number of courses means that the order of modules or the streams you choose may determine whether modules are core or optional. This means that your core modules or options may differ from what’s shown below. For details on any additional costs, check out the Fees and scholarships section. As evidence of completing your degree you must provide both proof of graduation in addition to your transcript. Degree requirementsBachelors degree with an overall mark of at least 65%-75% depending on your university. Degree requirementsBachelors degree with a second-class lower division or CAP 3.5.

If double-anonymous then when referring to thesis/unpublished work, please avoid identifying information. It should concisely describe the contents of your article, and include key terms . It should be informative, accessible and not only indicate the general aims and scope of the article, but also state the methodology used, main results obtained and conclusions drawn. The abstract should be complete in itself; it should not contain undefined acronyms/abbreviations and no table numbers, figure numbers, references or equations should be referred to. Articles relying on clinical trials should quote the trial registration number at the end of the abstract. The abstract should be suitable for direct inclusion in abstracting services and should not normally be more than 300 words.

Reviews and Perspectives are also considered, following the process described in the Guide for Authors. Scotland’s scientists made some of the most important discoveries that helped us to understand the world and invented some of the technologies we rely on today. In the Vancouver numerical system, references are numbered sequentially through the text. The numbers should be given in square brackets, e.g. , [4-7] etc., and one number can be used to refer to several instances of the same reference. The reference list at the end of the article then lists the references in numerical order, not alphabetically. A reference should give your reader enough information to locate the article concerned, and you should take particular care to ensure that the information is correct so that links to referenced articles can be made successfully.
