Industrial Pharmaceutical Chemistry - from Laboratory to Market

University of Aberdeen

Old Aberdeen Campus

Content

The process of drug discovery and development (i.e. getting new drugs from the laboratory bench to market) involves a complex scientific process and rigorous regulatory framework. While chemistry graduates generally possess the required chemical knowledge and the ability to perform laboratory work on a small scale, feedback from our industry partners has revealed a skills gap in the understanding of how a laboratory process is taken from bench to market.

This MSc programme is designed to address the need of industry-ready graduates by covering the key processes involved in developing marketed products, including scale-up, product formulation and clinical trials.

The UK is a world leader in medical research and innovation and the biopharmaceutical industry is one of the largest sectors in the UK for high-value jobs. Students will benefit from a high level of industry engagement, including guest lectures, site visits, and opportunities for industry-supported projects.

Entry Requirements

minimum entry requirement for this programme is a Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Science or Chemical Engineering degree at 2:2 (lower second class) UK Honours level (or an Honours degree from a non-UK institution which is judged by the University to be of equivalent worth).
