PHARMACEUTICAL & FORENSIC ANALYSIS BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (HONOURS) Ab Initio


LC265 What is the programme about?


This programme is the first and most reputable of its kind in Ireland. Students achieve a detailed knowledge and understanding of the sciences underpinning the forensic, pharmaceutical and analytical fields. Students will gain exposure to, and experience in, the methodology and techniques at the forefront of these major scientific areas.


In LIT, we place an emphasis on “hands-on work” (approximately 50% of scheduled course work), endowing our graduates with a highly desirable and much sought-after set of skills and expertise: experience in pharmaceutical and forensic science combined with a range of analytical techniques which make graduates highly sought after by employers. Since the beginning of this programme, selected student(s) have been employed each year by the State Laboratory for their work placement.


Who is the programme suited to?


The programme is ideal for students with a questioning mind and interested in using Science to solve problems. It will suit any student interested in laboratory Science. This is the most established programme of its kind in Ireland. The six months work placement at home or abroad gives graduates an edge when seeking employment.


Modules Year 1: Forensic & Scientific Practice, Biology, Chemistry, Concepts in Physics for Scientists and Scientific Computation.


Year 2: Forensics, Biosciences, Introduction to Pharmaceutical Science, Instrumental Analysis, Inorganic & Physical Chemistry, and Statistical Process Control.


Year 3: Bio-toxicology, Protein & Molecular Biology, Forensic Toxicology & Drug Analysis, Quality Control, Instrumental Analysis, Pharmaceutical Technology, Six month Work Placement which may have an international dimension.


Year 4: Bio-molecular Forensic Science & Biopharmaceuticals, Forensics, Advanced Pharmaceutical Technology, Instrumental Analysis, Drugs in Sport, Project.


What can I do after the programme?


Upon graduation students may progress to a Masters or PhD by research – previous graduates having completed research within LIT, other Irish universities, Oxford University (Ph.D.), University of York (Ph.D.), etc.


For graduates that wish to proceed immeadiately to employment, career prospects are diverse - with graduates holding public and private sector jobs in state labs, healthcare, the pharmaceutical industry, analyst labs and more. The employment record of our graduates within Ireland has been excellent. However, our graduates have also obtained positions in North America, UK and Australia.
