Sefydliad Catalysis Caerdydd

Mae’n cael ei hystyried yn un o brif ganolfannau'r byd ar gyfer catalysis. Mae disgwyl i gartref uwch-dechnoleg newydd Sefydliad Catalysis Caerdydd yng Hwb Ymchwil Drosiadol Prifysgol Caerdydd agor yn 2021.

Catalysis lies at the heart of many chemical processes, from living systems to large-scale industrial reactors. By understanding and applying catalysts, we can create faster, cleaner, economical and more sustainable processes. With roughly 85% of all products manufactured involve catalysis somewhere in their production chain, career prospects for graduates with specialist knowledge in catalysis are strong.

This course will provide you with a sound foundation in catalysis theory and its applications. You will be trained to use a range of laboratory equipment and techniques for testing and characterising catalysts. We will explore three branches of catalysis – heterogeneous, homogeneous and biological – and you’ll have the opportunity to specialise in the area that interests you through a major research project.

A selection of current research and projects within the Cardiff Catalysis Institute (CCI) include gold catalysis and exploring the use of biorenewables to transform waste into fuel.

Rhagor o wybodaeth am ofynion Iaith Saesneg.

Mae'n rhaid i ymgeiswyr sydd angen Fisa myfyriwr i astudio yn y DU gyflwyno cymhwyster iaith Saesneg derbyniol er mwyn bodloni gofynion UKVI (Fisâu a Mewnfudo y DU).

Euogfarnau troseddol

Nid yw'n ofynnol i chi gwblhau gwiriad DBS (Gwasanaeth Gwahardd Datgelu) na darparu Tystysgrif Ymddygiad Da i astudio'r cwrs hwn.

Os ydych chi'n destun unrhyw amod trwydded neu gyfyngiad monitro ar hyn o bryd a allai effeithio ar eich gallu i gwblhau'ch astudiaethau yn llwyddiannus, bydd gofyn i chi ddatgelu'ch cofnod troseddol. Mae'r amodau'n cynnwys, ond heb fod yn gyfyngedig i:

  • mynediad i gyfleusterau labordy gan gynnwys cemegolion
  • mynediad at gyfrifiaduron neu ddyfeisiau sy'n gallu storio delweddau
  • defnyddio offer / dyfeisiau rhyngrwyd a chyfathrebu
  • cyrffyw
  • rhyddid i symud
  • cyswllt â phobl sy'n gysylltiedig â Phrifysgol Caerdydd.

Strwythur y cwrs

This course may be taken on a one-year full-time or three-year part-time basis.

There are two parts to the degree. Part one is comprised of core and optional taught modules which you will take during the autumn and spring semesters. In these modules we will provide you with a foundation in the theory of heterogeneous, homogeneous and biological catalysis. Optional modules will allow you to specialise in your area of interest.

On progression to part two, you will carry out a summer research project in our research laboratories or one of our partner universities. We will make a range of project options available to you from the three areas of catalysis, molecular modelling, or computational chemistry.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2022/23. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2022.

Os ydych ar yr opsiwn gradd llawn amser am flwyddyn, byddwch yn ymgymryd â'r holl fodiwlau a'ch prosiect ymchwil mewn blwyddyn.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Anisa Tariq, MSc Catalysis
Cardiff is a beautiful city and having lived here all my life I know how much the University has developed over the years, especially in research. The MSc Catalysis course is exemplary; despite my pharmaceutical science background I have been able to build my knowledge and practical skills on the subject thoroughly through the various modules taught on the programme and it has prepared me well for work in industry and towards a career in research. Having the opportunity to work with renowned professors in the field and at the Cardiff Catalysis Institute – the leading catalysis facility in the UK – makes me very proud and I hope I will be able to contribute further to the success of the department and make the most of what Cardiff University has to offer.
