Analytical chemists are essential to the operation of most laboratories such as manufacturing, processing, minerals, environmental, forensic, pharmaceutical and many other industries. They use sophisticated instrumentation for the analysis of materials. The Analytical Chemistry major provides a body of knowledge in chemical analysis and a range of skills necessary for a career in modern analytical or industrial laboratories. These skills are gained in laboratories that are well equipped with modern instrumentation. There is a wide range of graduate destinations such as research and development, technical services, quality control laboratories, postgraduate research opportunities.
