Professional development

Green Chemical Futures"As part of the ag九游会官网登录 Doctoral Program I have also completed professional development modules in project management and statistics which have both been great. Project management is something I have always been interested in and the session also covered things like team work and team culture. The statistics course really improved my confidence and skill when it came to understanding and manipulating large data sets."
