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.
The MSc includes fundamentals of MS and chromatography with key industrial topics covering pharmaceutical, environmental and forensic analysis, data handling, professional management and good laboratory practice (GLP). The unique combination of industry participation and course content provides a vocationally-relevant qualification with invaluable training and experience sought in the UK and worldwide.
