3.4.3.1    Minor in Analytical Chemistry

Host Department: Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry offers a minor which comprises modules related to the theoretical 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 place such graduates in good stead when they seek employment, specifically giving them an edge in terms of employability over their more specialised counterparts.

To be awarded a minor in Analytical Chemistry, a student must pass all the following six modules:

  1. CM1191 Experiments in Chemistry 1
  2. CM1111 Inorganic Chemistry 1 or CM1121 Organic Chemistry 1 or CM1131 Physical Chemistry 1 or CM1401 Chemistry for Life Sciences or CM1402 General Chemistry or CM1501 Organic Chemistry for Engineers or CM1502 General and Physical Chemistry for Engineers
  3. CM2192 Experiments in Chemistry 3 or CM2142 Analytical Chemistry 1
  4. CM2101 Physical Chemistry 2 or CM3241 Instrumental Analysis I
  5. CM3242 Instrumental Analysis II
  6. CM3292 Advanced Experiments in Analytical & Physical Chemistry or CM3295 Selected Experiments in Analytical Chemistry

This minor is not awarded with the primary major in Chemistry and second major in Chemistry.
