This course is ideal if you would like to acquire an in-depth understanding of the theory of analytical techniques and how to apply them to complex industrial problems in the chemical industry, but would also like to gain a knowledge of management issues. You will study selected topics in analytical chemistry combined with the fundamentals of management theory, setting your scientific knowledge in a vocational context.

This combination is particularly useful if you are seeking to gain a management position within the chemical and allied industries. If you are unable to commit to the full masters programme, intermediate qualifications (PgCert/PgDip) are available.

What will you study?

You will gain the key skills required in the specialised area of analytical chemistry, including good measurement and scientific practice, evaluation interpretation of data and other professional and organisational skills. In addition to studying core analytical techniques and their applications, there is also scope to study and explore recent trends in analytical science using the latest analytical technologies.

To put your studies into context, you will either be offered a placement within industry where you will carry out your independent research project or in the university's laboratories. The management studies modules give you an insight into how the business world operates and will introduce you to marketing concepts and people management skills.

Core modules

* Statistics and Computing
This module will:

* provide an understanding of the application and importance of statistics to chemical analysis;
* develop the skills required to perform statistical calculations on paper, with a calculator or with suitable computer software; and
* develop an understanding of how knowledge of statistical analysis allows better experiments to be designed.


* Separation Science I
This module will:

* describe the fundamental principles and typical applications of modern separation techniques;
* extend this to more advanced practical aspects of separation techniques;
* allow you to study modern Liquid Chromatography instrumentation in detail - including interfacing of Liquid Chromatography separation techniques to other analytical systems;
* allow you to study modern instrumentation relative to the appropriate techniques in depth;
* give you an appreciation of the interfacing of Gas Chromatography to other analytical systems; and
* discuss the practices of Gel Electrophoresis and Capillary Electrophoresis.


* Separation Science II
This module extends your knowledge of the more advanced practical aspects of separation techniques. You will:

* study modern instrumentation relative to the appropriate techniques in depth;
* develop an appreciation of the interfacing of gas chromatography to other analytical systems; and
* discuss the practices of gel electrophoresis and capillary electrophoresis.


* Molecular and Atomic Spectroscopy I
This module will:

* show the principles, advantages and limitations of atomic spectroscopic techniques, instrumentation and applications;
* enhance your understanding of the bases for quantitative spectroscopic measurements;
* allow you to practice the interpretation of simple molecular spectra to deduce chemical structures; and
* provide an in-depth knowledge of the modern analytical methods and instrumentation used in: * atomic fluorescence;
* uv/visible and infra-red spectroscopy;
* nuclear magnetic resonance;
* mass spectrometry;and
* their applications.




* Molecular and Atomic Spectroscopy II
This module provides an in-depth knowledge of modern analytical methods and instrumentation used in the following techniques and their applications:

* atomic fluorescence;
* UV/visible and infra-red spectroscopy;
* nuclear magnetic resonance; and
* mass spectrometry.

It also develops your ability to interpret advanced spectral data.


* Financial Resource Management
This module will develop your ability to analyse and interpret financial data. It covers:

* how to prepare appropriate financial statements and accounting information; and
* techniques for evaluating financial risk and decision-making.


* Managing People and Organisations
This module provides you with a framework which will enable you to critically reflect upon your performance and plan your professional development.

It provides an understanding of human behaviour within organisations and looks at how management performance can be enhanced through effective human resource management.You will:

* demonstrate your ability to integrate international aspects of managing people and organisations; and
* develop an understanding of human resource practices and procedures.


* Independent Research Project
This module will:

* encourage creative and independent thinking by allowing you to work independently on a project appropriate to analytical chemistry or pharmaceutical analysis;
* develop your ability to critically evaluate your own and others' work; and
* further develop the analytical and laboratory skills acquired during the taught element of the course.



Option modules

* Advanced Analytical Techniques and Applications
This module will:

* revise and extend your knowledge of the principles of advanced analytical instrumentation such as radiochemical, thermal and electroanalytical techniques;
* apply this to aspects of direct analytical importance in industry;
* show you the advantages and limitations of these advanced techniques; and
* allow you to study the applications of their combination with other techniques, such as chromatography.


* Specialised Analytical Techniques, Applications and Problem Solving

* A good honours degree or equivalent in chemistry, pharmacy, life sciences or a related subject. * Applicants with alternative qualifications will also need appropriate experience in analysis. We may ask you to enrol for a certificate or diploma in the first instance. Please contact the Postgraduate Office with further details of your experience. * International students must have an IELTS score of 6.5 or equivalent English Language Requirements CAE score: (read more) Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) is part of the Cambridge English suite and is targeted at a high level (IETLS 6.5-8.0). It is an international English language exam set at the right level for academic and professional success.
