Course content

The Master of Science Program in Analytical Chemistry is aimed to prepare BSc graduates for employment and career in analytical laboratories. This can range from materials and forensic testing to environmental sampling and food quality control.

Modern analysis techniques, real-world analytical problems and the physical principles will be covered. The program will also provide extensive experimental hands-on experience, including laboratory-based courses.

Program Objective
-Professional Training
-Employment-orientated Education
-Knowledge for Accreditation
-Lab Management Training
-Practical and Research Experience

Program Curriculum
The program is designed to cover all important aspects of modern laboratory analysis, whilst offering maximum flexibility for students to adapt the program to their own needs. For those seeking more practical hands-on experience, up to 9 credits of laboratory work, including a research project, can be taken.

Department of Chemistry, HKUST
The Department of Chemistry at HKUST has achieved notable global recognition of its excellence based primarily on its research record. (Department is ranked 2nd in Hong Kong, 12th in Asia, 28th Globally by QS 2016 World University Rankings by subject)

Since the change to 4-year UG degree program in Hong Kong in 2012, the Department has adopted a careful review and overhaul of its UG program. We now offer B.Sc. in Chemistry with various Options (Biomolecular Chemistry, Environmental and Analytical Chemistry, Materials Chemistry, and Pure Chemistry).

This has proven to be a successful approach and Chemistry has been one of the most popular B.Sc. program choices for the 2013 and 2014 cohorts of School of Science students. The Department has about 100 research post-graduate students. Places on the new taught M.Sc. program in Analytical Chemistry are limited and early application is advised.
