Analytical Science MSc

Analytical chemists use a range of modern instrumental methods to separate, identify and quantify matter. Analytical chemistry is core to all the sciences, and has broad applications to forensic, archaeological, environmental, pharmaceutical, medicine and materials chemistry. All require careful application due to shared problems of small sample size, low abundances, complex mixtures, contamination and degradation.

This programme is designed to assist you in becoming experienced, independent practitioners of modern analytical science in tune with the needs of research and industry. It provides the necessary practical, interpretative analytical skills to apply a wide range of analytical techniques to key areas of application and to provide a genuine research experience through an extended research project.
