Characterization of the study
Subject of the master programme is theoretical and experimental study of analytical chemistry with a focus on methods of chemical analysis and study of solids. The field of study is based on modern analytical chemistry applied in development, production and application of new materials (e.g. composites, nanomaterials, carbonaceous materials, sorbents, catalysts). Study involves subjects amplifying theoretical knowledge on chemical equilibria, principles of analytical methods, chemometrics, structure and texture of solids and their properties. Instrumental analytical methods are aimed at study of theoretical bases and experimental skills of spectral, thermal, electrochemical, separation and microscopical methods, with connection to computers, of course. Objective of the study consists in acquisition of theoretical and practical bases of analytical chemistry, especially in the field of modern instrumental analytical methods suitable to study and analyse solids. Students will obtain practical experience with analysis of selected solids including experience with modern instruments operating (hardware, software).
Character of graduate’s profile
Graduates will be able to study in the doctoral programmes of analytical chemistry, possibly in the field of physical chemistry, material science, environmental problems). They will know theoretical and practical aspects of instrumental analytical methods and their applications in research and analysis of natural solids (sediments, soils, minerals, coal) as well as anthropogenic solids (wastes, new materials). They can assert themselves in analytical laboratories of research and industry institutions, in monitoring and testing laboratories.
