MSc in Adv Chemical and Pharmaceutical Analysis    Back

Dublin City University Course Type: Master taught Start Date: September
Location: Dublin, Ireland Duration: Full time - 1 Year Fees/total cost: EUR 3,300.00 - EUR 5,000.00


This programme provides a formally structured training at postgraduate level for appropriately qualified science graduates.

The goal of the programme is to provide graduates and scientists, working in a laboratory environment, with a fundamental training in the theory and practice of modern, advanced instrumental methods of analysis. These environments include analytical and development laboratories, food and pharmaceutical industries, and in government, semi-state and hospital laboratories. The programme is designed to supplement the material covered by primary degree programmes in science (particularly those which are chemical, pharmaceutical or biotechnology related) and stresses the importance of instrumentation in the solution of problems encountered in the workplace.

Aims and Objectives:

  • To provide a sound theoretical basis for analytical measurements
  • To develop your understanding of the operation of modern analytical instrumentation and how it can be interfaced with computer hardware and software
  • To develop competence in the application of modern techniques of data analysis in analytical method development
  • To develop your analytical problem-solving skills

Career Prospects:

Masters graduates will be of great interest to employers in the chemical, pharmaceutical and biopharma sector, for positions in analysis, development, quality control and management. In particular, many of the students on the part-time programme are already employed full-time and, upon graduation, will use the Masters qualification to progress their careers with their current employer.
