Analytical Science for Industry

The programme provides the opportunity for students to acquire postgraduate level research and employability skills within the analytical sciences sector, in an industrial context, hence providing a strong educational background for a research career in either academia or industry. Students on the programme will benefit from our research expertise and our links with industries that provide the foundation for work placement opportunities. All students on this course will undertake a 30-week placement with an industrial context, either in Keele University's laboratories or at the industrial partner's premises, which will ultimately boost employability skills.

The programme title encompasses this distinctive conjunction of industrial context for analytical science.
