|1.||Apply basic concepts underpinning quantitative and qualitative instrumental chemical analysis via designed laboratory experiments across the range of instruments;|
|2.||Discuss fundamental principles behind chromatography, spectroscopy and spectrometry and diagrammatically present their basic operating principles, clearly expressing ideas and perspectives;|
|3.||Interpret various analytical data including chromatographic (liquid and gas), spectroscopic (absorption, emission, infra-red and nuclear magnetic resonance) and spectrometric (electron-impact mass spectrometry) as relevant to given problems;|
|4.||Optimise standard methodologies to the analysis of various real samples (food, pharmaceutical and environmental) including method selection, sample preparation, instrumental operation and data analysis so as to develop current industry specific instrumental competency in collaboration with peers; and|
|5.||Evaluate the quality of own analytical data and review team members data and report the findings to peers and demonstrators with initiative and judgement.|
