Emphasising and exploiting the radial connections of Chemistry in general and Analytical Chemistry in particular, with most other Sciences, the Department offers a minor which comprises modules related to the theory and practical aspects of modern analytical techniques used widely in the petrochemical, fine chemical, polymer, pharmaceutical, environmental, electronic and materials industries as well as research laboratories.
The Analytical Chemistry minor is especially useful to Biological Sciences, Materials Science and Physics graduates who will thus be suitably trained in essential aspects of analytical science. This training will stand such graduates in good stead when they seek employment, specifically giving them an edge in terms of employability over their more specialised counterparts.
This minor is not awarded with the Chemistry major, the Applied Chemistry major, and the Concentration in Economics and Analytical Chemistry.
To be awarded a minor in Analytical Chemistry, a student must pass the following modules:
