Chemistry - Analytical Chemistry

Overview
This course is designed to give participants a thorough training in the theory and practice of modern analytical techniques, with special regard to solving problems such as arise in various areas of Irish industry. Towards these ends the course will consist of (i) lectures, (ii) laboratory work on set experiments and (iii) a short analytical research/development project.

Opportunities exist for industrial placement both locally and through IAESTE and for exchange of staff and students with other European research laboratories through various EU-supported Socrates networks, linked to University College Cork.
