This program is delivered in three key areas of Analytical Chemistry, Environmental Analytical Chemistry, and Pharmaceutical Analysis. They are designed to provide advanced knowledge and practical training in modern analytical instrumental techniques.
The Master of Analytical Chemistry is a one-year course designed to provide you with the theoretical and practical skills for employment in a wide range of industries that require analytical experience. The course curriculum consists of six months of lectures, hands-on lab sessions, professional service workshops, industry-based seminars / workshops, industry visits, and a six-month research project (industry, institute of research, on board).
Upon completion of this master’s course, you will be able to:
- identify, formulate, analyze and solve problems in the analysis of chemical compounds.
- describe the fundamental and applied aspects of chemical analysis.
- design and perform a method of chemical and pharmaceutical analysis, including instrumental analysis.
- prepare written lab reports that provide a description of the experiment, explain the experiment and reasoning clearly, and provide a conclusion appropriate.
- communicate effectively with the chemical, environmental and pharmaceutical communities.
- carry out research and development of methods in chemical, pharmaceutical and environmental analysis.
- prepare a research report written in the form of a dissertation.
The MSc in Analytical Chemistry course consists of eight course modules including lectures, established practical sessions, professional service workshops, industry guest lectures, industry workshops and site visits and a six-month research project.
Students study 90-credit course work from the following modules:
