LEARNING OUTCOMES:

 

Upon successful completion of this course students should have the ability to:

1.     Display a range of laboratory skills relating to instrument operation, observation and measurement, C3, P4 (PO2)

2.     Assess the benefits and limitations of different instrumentation methods and instrumental components C4 (PO3)

3.     Evaluate and interpret experimental results and produce concise laboratory reports;C6, A3 [PO4]

Design work both individually and as part of a team; C6 [PO5]

TRANSFERABLE SKILLS: Students should be able to develop good written and interpersonal communication, team work and leadership, problem solving, planning and organizational skills through a process of interrelated lectures, lab classes and PBL sessions
TEACHING-LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT STRATEGY:

 

Teaching-learning strategy:

  • The course will be taught through a combination of formal lectures and group work using authentic materials, informal activities, various textbooks and website materials. The use of examination and internal reporting assessment will assess the student’s ability to apply theoretical concepts in context.

Assessment strategy:

  • Formative
  • Summative
SYNOPSIS:

 

The course will address the fundamental principles and applications of modern instrumental analysis relevant for industrial chemistry and food science students. The subject consists of a series of interrelated lectures, tutorials and lab classes. The analytical techniques covered range from spectroscopy, chromatography, electrophoresis, electro-analytics to thermal analysis as well as mass spectrometry. The lecture components will address the underpinning physical principles of each analytical technique in-detail and also include an introduction to statistical data analysis. At the completion of the course, the student will developed a firm understanding of the analytical methods employed in his or her field of study and also gained experience in carrying out analytical experiments.
