This course provides recent graduates with training in current analytical techniques and scientific skills which are of value to a wide range of sectors including chemical, pharmaceutical, optoelectronics and environmental monitoring.
This programme consists of both a taught element and a substantial research project. The lecture modules cover a broad range of scientific topics as well as transferable skills. The individual research topics may be in either applied or fundamental areas of analytical chemistry and wherever possible, projects are designed to tackle real industrial or environmental problems.
The award of the Diploma is determined by the student's performance in examinations based on the lecture programme and on a satisfactory project report, together with an oral examination and departmental seminar. The MSc is awarded following the examination of a dissertation based on the project work.
