Youll learn the theory behind state-of-the-art analytical techniques and have an opportunity to practice your skills using the most modern instrumentation.
Youll be trained on techniques such as:
Liquid and gas chromatography (HPLC, GC)
Mass spectrometry (MS)
Thermal Analysis (DSC, TGA)
X-ray crystallography (PXRD, XRD)
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy
You will also receive training on QA/QC aspects of the Pharmaceutical Industry. For your research project, youll spend 2-3 months in a laboratory. You have the option to do this in industry, for example in Almac.
Acquire the skills, knowledge and hands-on experience for a career as a Pharmaceutical Analyst in Industry or Academia.
Who are you?
You are probably a recent physical or life sciences graduate chemistry, pharmacy and biology.
But you could equally be in work and want to develop your professional skills. If you are, we offer this course part-time as well, one day per week.
Why study this course?
Our industrial partners are always telling us they need people like you. Analysts are among the most sought after professionals with some of the highest employability rates.
Our industrial partners have influenced the course structure, to tell us what they need from the latest analytical graduates.
We have guest lectures from industry to tell you about the issues they face, out in the field.
Employability is a major perk of the course. Ireland, north and south, is a major hub for the Pharmaceutical industry.
