Course content

The MRes in Applied Analytical Sciences (LCMS) is a unique combination of industry participation and course content that will provide you with a vocationally-relevant qualification and help make you highly employable both in the UK and abroad.

Global demand for mass spectrometry and chromatography has grown at an unprecedented rate, with qualified graduates in short supply and highly sought after. Your course is designed for the needs of industry and will cover topics such as fundamentals of mass spectrometry and separation science, valid analytical measurement, statistics, data analysis and method development.

Swansea is the only UK institution to offer a scheme solely dedicated to these topics, drawing upon expertise in the Institute of Mass Spectrometry (IMS), based in the Medical School.
