Course Summary

Analytical chemistry underpins many important commercial enterprises from jet engine development to food production, and is also applied to many other academic disciplines such as Earth sciences, medicine, archaeology, pharmacy and forensics. This MSc seeks to train the next generation of analytical scientists in state-of-the-art methods and skills to tackle the challenges of this broad range of applications. This programme is designed to provide comprehensive training in analytical chemistry and its implementation. A thorough understanding of error analysis, data processing and data presentation will be at the foundation of this programme.

The programme will contain minimum formal instruction, but emphasise self-learning and originality of thought. Students will develop and demonstrate self-direction and originality, and the independence required for continuing professional development. Using a non-traditional approach this programme will prioritise independent learning and research. Students also participate in peer-review assessment of posters and talks. Peer assessment is an important transferable skill that is used widely in industrial and academic environments. Emphasis will be on designing appropriate analytical methodologies and the relevant underpinning data handling, analysis and interpretation. The physics and chemistry behind state-of-the-art measurement technologies, their methods and application limitations will also be prioritised. Graduates will be equipped for varied employment in industry and the public sector: analytical science techniques have a very broad range of applications in many sectors, ranging from forensics to global climate change and medicine to the automotive industry.
