This course provides postgraduate education in Analytical Chemistry, a specialism which is a major source of employment for scientists. Analytical Chemistry involves the identification and measurement of chemicals, be they in industrial processes, humans or materials. This course will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the most recent technological developments and applications in Analytical Chemistry. Instrumental techniques used in the analysis of organic compounds, metals, solids, etc. are all covered. Possible sources of error in experimental and instrumental analysis are discussed, thus allowing the correct interpretation of experimentally-derived scientific data There is the opportunity to study a specialised module in the area of biochemical analysis or pharmaceutical analysis. This course is two thirds taught material (core lectures are delivered on three days of the week) and one third research project.
I worked in the Pharmaceutical industry for eight years doing my BSc(Hons) and MSc part-time. I chose to undertake a full time PhD because I wanted to progress my career in the industry and getting a PhD would allow me to do this. My time at the University of Huddersfield has been very enjoyable - the facilities and quality of teaching are excellent. I found the BSc and MSc rewarding and so far my PhD has been the same.
"The course has not only given me the qualification needed to suceed in my chosen career but it has also taught me how to plan and manage my work and also how to communicate my knowledge with fellow academics and the public.
I started thihs course with the intention to go straight back into industry when I finished, but during my course I have had the opportunity to do some part-time lecturing which I have found rewarding and enjoyable. I may now pursue a career in academia".
A minimum of a lower second class honours degree in Chemistry or in a subject of which Chemistry has formed a significant part.
