The need to measure the presence of chemical compounds increases exponentially. Synthesis products for pharmaceutical manufacture, proteins in biological systems, environmental contaminants in complex samples and trace elements in anti-doping are just examples of fields where analytical chemists are needed. Our research connected MSc program is aimed at students who want a broad and deep knowledge of modern analytical techniques and how to interpret and process measurements.
