The Postgraduate (Master) Programme "Quality Control-Chemical Analysis-Environment" of the School of Chemistry AUTh offers high quality postgraduate education in three specialisations, which cover basic and applied fields of contemporary Chemistry in the areas of: Pharmaceutical Analysis, Product Quality Control and Quality Assurance, and Environmental Quality and Management. The objective of the programme is the theoretical and practical training of students and the scientific research in the field of their specialisation Education and research in each specialisation cover the following scientific areas:
a) Chemical Analysis-Bioanalysis: Advanced Analytical Chemistry, Statistical Analysis, Chemometrics, Instrumental Methods of Analysis (Spectroscopic Analytical Methods, Electroanalytical Methods, Separation Techniques, Biosensors, Immunoassays), Research Methodology, with application in Bioanalytical Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Analysis.
b) Quality Control: Advanced Analytical Chemistry, Statistical Analysis, Chemometrics, Instrumental Methods of Analysis (Spectroscopic Analytical Methods, Electroanalytical Methods, Separation Techniques, Biosensors, Immunoassays), Research Methodology, with application in Food Authenticity and Quality Control of Materials.
c) Environmental Quality and Management: Chemistry and Pollution Control of Atmospheric, Aquatic and Terrestrial Environment, Methods of Environmental Sampling and Analysis, Pollution Control Technologies, Management of Water and Wastes, Quality of Environmental Measurements-Quality Management Systems, Environmental Impact Assessment and Geographic Information Systems.
During the first two semesters, students attend courses credited with 60 ECTS totally (30 in each semester). In the third semester, students prepare their MasterThesis on a research project, which is credited with 30 ECTS. The aim of the programme is to prepare skilled scientists able to offer science and research services to the local society. Graduates of our programme can find professional occupation in industry (Chemical, Food, Pharmaceutical industry etc.), Education, Research Institutions, Public Organizations and Agencies, State Chemical Laboratories, Hospitals, Analytical Laboratories etc.
