Drug & Medicinal Product Analysis

This programme was developed with input from people working in the relevant industries. We aim to produce graduates who understand how medicines and healthcare products, including pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals, are manufactured and checked to make sure they are safe, effective, and high quality. Students who graduate from the programme are ready to work in one of Ireland’s most valuable industries. This Honours Degree allows students to develop the analytical laboratory skills necessary to work in the highly regulated industries that manufacture medicines, medical devices, and healthcare products. It also offers students the chance to study quality control and management in those industries. The programme takes a detailed look at every aspect of manufacture in Ireland’s most successful sector and develops the students’ skills in the areas most required to obtain good, well-paid jobs in the industry. There is a six-month work placement in Year 3 of the programme to provide valuable work experience.
