APPLIED CHEMISTRY HIGHER CERTIFICATE IN SCIENCE


LC261 What is the programme about?


Applied Chemistry is a two year, Level 6 programme with the opportunity to progress to Level 7 and Level 8 honours degree level at LIT.


This programme gives the student fundamental training in chemistry, analytical science, computers, biosciences and statistics. These skills will allow the Level 6 graduate to work at introductory level in any analytical laboratory. Most students progress to the Level 8 honours degree where additional laboratory, practical and analytical skills are developed.


Who is the programme suited to?


Any student interested in science is welcome to this programme. If you would like to eventually work in a scientific environment, conducting experiments, analysing results, problem solving and so forth, this programme is for you!


If chemistry is not one of your chosen Leaving Cert subjects or if you feel it is not your strength, do not worry. Chemistry is taught from introductory level in first year so that everyone is able to participate fully in this programme.


Modules


Year 1: Chemistry, Biology, Physics Concepts for Scientists, Laboratory Practice, Environmental Studies and Mathematics & Computer Applications.


Year 2: Instrumental Analysis, Inorganic & Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Mathematics and Statistics.


What can I do after the programme?


Graduates from the Level 6 programme are qualified to work in a laboratory based setting as a laboratory technician or chemical analyst. These skills are sought by the world’s top large pharmaceutical companies, many of which are based in Ireland.


The employment record of graduates successfully completing this programme together with the degree in Science (Chemical Instrumentation/Analytical Methods) continues to be one of the best in Ireland.
