Chemistry: Analytical Sciences

Universiteit van Amsterdam

  • Beschrijving
  • Overzicht

In the track Analytical Sciences of the Master's programme Chemistry you will focus on aspects of analytical chemistry, such as modern analytical techniques, general analysis and application fields.

Analytical chemistry plays a crucial role in many areas of science and society. Chemical compounds in a variety of materials and environments must be identified and quantified. Analytical chemistry provides the methods and techniques that make this possible. Its impact is not restricted to chemistry alone: progress in medicine, biology, environmental and material sciences is strongly dependent on the availability of new analytical tools as well. This Master's track is unique in the Netherlands, in that it focuses purely on (all aspects of) analytical chemistry - a specialisation for which there is currently a great demand on the labour market.
