The IMU MSc in Analytical and Pharmaceutical Chemistry is suitable for graduates with a degree in Chemistry, Pharmacy or related disciplines and is targeted at both recent graduates and those already employed within the pharmaceutical or chemical industries.
The course provides graduates with an opportunity to sharpen, and increase their existing knowledge and understanding of advanced analytical chemistry; spectroscopy and separation techniques; research methodology and scientific writing skills; drug discovery, design and development; quality management and regulatory systems; pharmaceutical microbiology; and product commercialisation. One of the modules on the principles and practices of green chemistry instils in students a sense of responsibility towards the environment.
The course comprises core taught modules, selective, a research component and laboratory sessions that provide hands-on experience of using analytical equipment for drug characterisation, identification and quantification. Students leave the programme with comprehensive knowledge and the practical and technical skills that are necessary for them to work effectively within a research and/or analytical division of a pharmaceutical or chemical company. The research component involves in-depth investigations into a subject that is important to today’s pharmaceutical or chemical industry and introduces students to the processes of critical thinking and research methodology to develop their careers in the field of research.
