Course Description

Materials Characterisation - Advanced



The Postgraduate Certificate in Advanced Materials Characterisation was developed based on an analysis of the importance of the pharmaceutical and related industries in Ireland and within the South-East region and also using information generated from the Wales Ireland Network for Scientific Skills (WINSS) Scientific Survey from a large number of pharmaceutical/ biotechnology, medical device and food companies. One of the outputs from this survey indicated that 32% & 33% of the companies require training in Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and optical microscopy respectively while almost 40% require Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and Thermal Gravimetric Analysis (TGA) training. Recognising this demand, the postgraduate certificate in Advanced Materials Characterisation was devised. This module is a part-time Level 9 programme and specifically addresses this recognised skills deficit by providing advanced level training.

This course places a strong emphasis on the professional development of the graduate and is aimed at students already working in an industrial environment. Such a qualification will enable and facilitate career progression for graduates in the region. The certificate programme can be taken singly as a stand-alone module worth 10 credits at level 9, or if the student wishes they can use these credits towards the Postgraduate Diploma/MSc (WD 519/520).
