MASTER IN ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY

The programme consists of two semesters and is a combination of course work (36 credits) and research (6 credits). The goal of this program is to produce professional chemists with in-depth knowledge and skills in chemical analysis. They should also be able to think creatively and innovatively and efficiently in information management with good technical and analytical skills. The program is design to produce knowledgeable and research-oriented chemists that are adept for innovation and advanced learning. They will be able to immerse themselves in a variety of careers that require knowledge and skills in chemical analysis in the public and private sectors.

Teaching and learning methods, comprise both conventional and blended learning approaches, are in line with objectives of programme modules. They include lectures, tutorials, laboratory sessions, workshops, case studies, critical reviews and seminars. The teaching and learning activities are conducted on weekends or after hours for convenience of students who have personal or work commitments on weekdays.
