M.Sc. in Analytical Chemistry (MSCANCHEM)

Minimum Duration: 2 Years
Maximum Duration: 4 Years
Course Fee: Rs. 46,600
Minimum Age: No bar
Maximum Age: No bar

Eligibility:

  • Graduates with B.Sc. (Major/Honours) Degree in Chemistry from a recognised university.
  • Graduates with a B.Sc. Degree (or equivalent) from a recognised university with Chemistry as one of three science subjects with equal weightage
  • Graduates with a B.Sc. Degree from an Open University with a minimum of 20 Credits of Chemistry courses

The M.Sc. Programme in Analytical Chemistry has been designed by the Chemistry Discipline involving experts throughout the nation. The need for such a programme in higher education in chemistry was felt since long. The role of Analysis in Chemistry is central and the analysis of various chemicals is routinely taken up in a chemistry laboratory. With the advent of technology, the instrumentation used in analytical techniques has also improved in due course of time. Thus, a sound knowledge of principles and applications provides strong footing to the learners to face the challenges posed by industrial and analytical laboratories.  With this background the programme has been designed and developed in such a way that it provides a strong foundation of fundamental concepts of chemistry including analytical chemistry. This programme also deals with the basic principles and applications of various analytical techniques such as separation methods including chromatographic techniques, spectroscopic methods, electroanalytical methods and other methods of analysis. After completing this programme, the learners will be able to apply all such methods of analysis in a laboratory.
                                                                                           
This programme has the following broad objectives:
 
  • Provides higher education opportunities to the learners in the area of Chemistry /Analytical Chemistry
  • Provides an opportunity to the learners to find suitable jobs in analytical /industrial laboratories
  • Provides an opportunity to the learners to upgrade their qualifications
  • Provides the opportunities to the learner in building their careers in research and teaching in Chemistry / Analytical  Chemistry
