Applied Analytical Science (LCMS)
World demand for mass spectrometry (MS) and chromatography has grown at an unprecedented rate, with qualified graduates in short supply and highly sought-after. Postgraduate (PG) training is essential as undergraduates are not taught to the required depth. Swansea is the only UK institution to offer a range of schemes solely dedicated to these topics, drawing upon expertise in the Institute of Mass Spectrometry (IMS), based at a long established UK centre of excellence.
Candidates should normally have a minimum of a 2.2 degree in a relevant science subject. Applications for the Master's and diploma will be from those looking for extensive training in LCMS, and a certificate suited to professionals, with several years experience in analytical sciences, requiring an up-date in their skills. Applicants wishing to pursue the Master's as a continuation of studies as a transfer or upgrade from the diploma or certificate will only be accepted for enrollment the following academic year. English language requirement IELTS overall 6.5 or Swansea University recognised equivalent.
Modules typically include: Mass spectrometry (basics and fundamentals); separation science and sample handling; data analysis and method development; professional management of laboratory practice; proteomics; pharmaceutical; environmental and forensic analysis; medical and life sciences; metabolomics, lipidomics and bioactive lipids; dissertation (MS experimental project).
