- Description -
Analytical science is the key to reliable chemical analysis, which is essential to most areas of science. This programme has been designed to meet the current and future needs of chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
This unique hands-on course has been established, in recognition of the global shortage of skilled analytical scientists, with backing from many of the industry giants.
- Course purpose -
Enabling students to pursue careers in the pharmaceutical, environmental, biomedical and chemical fields applying analytical and bioanalytical methodologies. Achieved by providing a thorough grounding in separation science and mass spectrometry, together with a three-month project placement to ensure a head start into industry and a variety of career opportunities.
- Course format and assessment -
The assessment of each taught module comprises a written examination paper and coursework (scientific presentations and laboratory based problem solving exercises). On completion of each module, the appropriate three hour examination is taken in either January or May. Module The Research Project is judged on the basis of a literature review presented in June and a journal article presented in mid-August. The final examination takes place in early September, and ALL students are required to be available at this time for a poster presentation of their work. The award of the degree requires a successful performance in all five modules.
Employment within the pharmaceutical industry at major international world-leading companies. PhD studies related to chemical analysis and bioanalysis; laboratory-based research careers such as cancer research where mass spectrometry is applied; other science-related careers where analytical instrumentation is used.
