Forensic science is fundamentally an analytical science. It is imperative that students have an in-depth knowledge and comprehension of the principles of analysis and how scientific analytical methods can be used in the investigation of crime.
These basic principles are also required for other disciplines such as pharmaceutical science and this module is jointly taught with other postgraduate students on such related programmes.
You will gain an understanding of the principles of modern analytical technologies and how physico-chemical properties of molecules determine the appropriate approach for analysis
