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.
Applications for this course, received after 30th June may not be accepted. A deposit will be required to secure a place.
Pharmaceutical Analysis highlights
This programme is taught jointly between the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and the School of Pharmacy by leading experts in the field.
- 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.
World Class Facilities
- Everything is on-campus, and the course is very hands-on and interactive. You'll use equipment such as:State of the art X-Ray and NMR facilitiesHPLC and GC instrumentationThermal analysis equipmentElectron microscopes
- Dr Panagiotis Manesiotis, the course director, has a background in analytical and materials chemistry.His research covers:Plastic antibodies: making from polymers what nature makes from proteins: creating more robust and less expensive antibodies.Environmental clean-up: engaging with the food industry and environmental protection agencies to recover valuable resources from waste and recycle them into useful materials - including phosphorus and nitrogen in food production waste, and even heavy metals from waste water.
Recent years have seen an exponential increase in the demand for highly-skilled analytical scientists, both in industry and academia.
This course offers advanced training in chemical analysis, with a focus on applications in the pharmaceutical sector.
