About

MSc degree courses are provided in three key areas of Analytical Chemistry, Environmental Analytical Chemistry and in Pharmaceutical Analysis, University College Cork. They are designed to provide advanced knowledge and hands-on training in modern analytical instrumental techniques. Separation science, sensors, and spectroscopic techniques are key elements alongside chemometrics, instrumentation and advanced research project completion. You will have the flexibility to specialise in a chosen field and further advancement to PhD research is available to highly motivated and talented postgraduates.

Programme Structure

On completion of this MSc course, you will be able to:

  • identify, formulate, analyse and solve problems in the analysis of chemical compounds
  • outline fundamental and applied aspects of chemical analysis
  • design and carry out a method of pharmaceutical and chemical analysis, including instrumental analysis
  • prepare written laboratory reports that provide a description of the experiment, explain the experiment and reasoning clearly, and provide an appropriate conclusion
  • communicate effectively with the chemistry, environmental and pharmaceutical communities
  • carry out research and method development in chemical, pharmaceutical and environmental analysis
  • prepare a written research report in the form of a dissertation
