Combine an in-depth understanding of how modern analytical instruments work with the practical skills to operate them, in this first-of-its-kind program
In one year you can gain significant knowledge as well as hands-on experience in instrumental chemical analysis, and be highly employable in positions in government and industry around the world. This stream is aimed primarily at recent graduates without extensive laboratory experience. A paid placement in the third term provides you with the opportunity to collaborate with government, industry, or another academic institution.
When students have completed two terms of course instruction, they will have approximately four months of full-time placement experience in a laboratory. Below is a listing of where some of our cohorts have completed placements with the following partners:
- The National Research Council (Ottawa, ON)
- Health Canada (Ottawa, ON)
- Trent University (Peterborough, ON)
This eight-month course-based graduate diploma is for students who have practical experience with the operation of analytical equipment in a laboratory setting. This stream is aimed primarily at practicing professionals who want to update their theoretical foundations of modern instrumentation developments. You will build a uniform understanding of good laboratory practice, introductory service and maintenance procedures, and a sound understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of modern mass spectrometric and chromatographic instruments.
