Analytical Chemistry is at the core of many different fields of inquiry, from developing pharmaceuticals to testing for environmental contaminants. It’s the science of measuring chemicals, fundamental to many breakthroughs in the field of chemistry.

In the Analytical Chemistry programme, students gain a broad understanding of the field as a whole, deepen their knowledge of a sub-discipline, and acquire an advanced understanding of analytical research methods through active laboratory work. Classes are taught by world-class researchers with diverse research interests who are active in their fields.

The programme consists of four mandatory courses (60 ECTS total), a free elective course (15 ECTS) and a mandatory degree project (45 ECTS). The degree projects feature independent research as part of a research group at ACES or in partnership with industry. Students can create their own topic or chose an available degree project.
