Course content

The aim of this course is to provide an intellectually stimulating and satisfying experience of learning and studying the modern aspects of analytical chemistry. The focus is on the application of state of the art instrumental techniques which underpin the operation of contemporary analytical laboratories. This course provides a broad perspective of analytical techniques covering both the analysis of organic and inorganic analytes in both liquid and solid form; thereby maximising career opportunities across the broadest possible range of employers within the chemicals sector and related industries ranging from pharmaceuticals to micro-electronics.

The fundamental ethos of this course is to underpin the theoretical knowledge gained within the class room with extensive laboratory sessions. This cumulates in an 80 credit project whereby students have the opportunity to specialise in various areas of instrumental analysis. This course will appeal to graduates from chemistry, chemical physics and other related disciplines.
