Introduction This course provides graduates with the opportunity to extend their knowledge of analytical chemistry. It provides the level of expertise required for entry to the Royal Society of Chemistry's Indicative Register of Analytical Chemists. Key features: * Modular course with eight taught modules plus project. * Emphasis on independent learning. * Assessment predominantly by assignment. The course is designed to train students in the scientific method in relation to Analytical Chemistry, extend your interest and knowledge in all areas of the subject and provide vocational support. Specific aims include: * To provide a thorough understanding of the basic principles of analysis, including design of sampling programme, pre-treatment, data handling and of the instrumentation used in modern analysis. * To help you think critically and make informed choices between proposed analytical techniques, methods and instruments. * To enable you to interpret data. * To teach the principles of quality control and assurance. * To enable you to apply your knowledge to the practical solution of real analytical problems. * To provide familiarity with current analytical literature to enable you to review, select, read and critically discuss the papers most relevant to a particular topic. * To train you in the methods of experimental design and the creation of new methods, novel modifications or combinations of existing methods. * To provide experience of handling and interpreting a wide range of analytical data. * To develop the techniques of communication, including report writing, poster and oral presentation. * To train students in independent study. As most of our students aim to improve their employment prospects the syllabus is closely matched to current industrial needs. We also provide additional assistance in finding employment. Course Structure To complete the MSc course you are required to pass eight taught modules including a practical module and project. The project requires 50 days laboratory work and takes place during the summer, usually in industry. We offer the following modules: * Fundamentals of Analytical Science * Instrumental Methods and the Analysis of Solids * Computational, Statistical and Mathematical Methods * Advanced Separation Techniques * Advanced Methods for Organic Compounds * Biochemical Methods * Environmental Analysis * Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Analysis * Practical * Placements and Careers (no credits are awarded for these modules) Career Opportunities Around 20 students graduate from this course each year. Some 90% gain full-time employment within three months of graduation. An application form may be downloaded from our web page at http:www.hud.ac.uksaschemmscft.htm .
