  • Overview

    Description
    The purpose of this module is to introduce participants to research methods for resolving practical problems relating to Analytical Chemistry. In this module students will develop knowledge and skills in literature research methods in an analytical chemistry context. The participants will also develop their presentation and communication skills. The approach taken in this module is primarily tutorial based. The participants research one given analytical topic using high quality research methods. These must be presented in a scientific manner in written form and orally. Overall, this module provides a platform to allow the participant to develop the skill of literature research as well as scientific presentation. Students are expected to interact with their assigned supervisor via the scheduled tutorials, contribute to class discussions, and utilise the academic library resources provided by DCU for preparation of their assignments.

    Learning Outcomes
    1. Learn the skills needed to approach a practical problem relating to Analytical Chemistry.
    2. Structure the problem-solving approach as a ‘tiered approach’ so that it can be applied universally in Analytical Chemistry.
    3. Research an analytical case study using high quality research literature.
    4. Understand, critique and summarise research articles in Analytical Chemistry.
    5. Analyse and present information and data relating to a proposed analytical protocol in an analytical case study.
    6. Present a proposal for a particular analytical approach orally.
    7. Discuss and critique an analytical protocol in a scientific manner in written format.

Course Disclaimer

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.

Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
