This programme is designed to provide students with a knowledge and understanding of aspects of chemical and pharmaceutical process technology so that they can apply the skills developed in the course and operate effectively in the areas of chemical development, process development and design, scale-up and technology transfer to production and process operation. It is intended for graduates in scientific or engineering disciplines who work or intend to work in the chemical and pharmaceutical sector.The part time programme will operate on a 2 year cycle. CONVERSION PROGRAMMES
The School of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences at DIT run four Masters programs designed to provide a bridge for students who have qualified in science disciplines to the specific requirements of the pharmaceutical and related industries. Students interested in Quality Assurance can choose DT233 or DT237 which are offered on a full time or part time basis respectively. Students interested in a career in Manufacturing and Technology can choose DT275 or DT276. See course descriptions below and links to further information.
These programs are offered as CONVERSION programmse specifically aimed at science graduates interested in a career in the Pharmaceutical or related industries. So whether your original degree was in science on the one hand, or engineering and technology on the other, you are equally likely to benefit. Due to its excellent reputation, our entrants come from a wide range of Universities from Ireland and overseas and represent all science disciplines. Each year we also have a small number of International students from both within and outside the EU. All have found the breadth, depth and rigor of this programme to be both stimulating and challenging. In consequence, it has benefitted them greatly in developing their careers.
