DHET "Sampling and Analysis in Physical Chemistry"EAPC

Our societies and economies are faced with more challenges every day: reduction of energy consumption, reduction of manufacturing processes impacts on the environment, manufacturing of eco-friendly products, compliance with regulatory requirements... These obligations require reliable and unquestionable data on all chemical products and their synthesis processes. Thus analytical chemistry is an unavoidable science.

Objectives

The objective is to train expert executives in the analytical process from the sampling up to the interpretation of the results, in a quality assurance environment.

Skills

  • Mastering the scientific concepts and the techniques of sampling and physical and chemical analysis to characterize qualitatively and/or quantitatively solid, liquid or gas media.
  • Designing, carrying out, managing and interpreting an analytical process.
  • Designing and controlling the monitoring of production processes.
  • Selecting and using relevant mathematical tools for data processing for the management and valorization of data.
  • Being aware of and using the reference documents of management systems (Quality, Safety and Environment).
  • Mastering the quality assurance requirements of analytical departments.
  • Organizing the management of professional hazards, health and safety at work.
  • Running team or lab activities.
  • Managing relations with customers, suppliers and subcontractors.
  • Managing technical resources.

Admissions

  • Students, employees or job-seekers with at least a level of: 
    • a 4th year of university,
    • a 2nd year of university and 4 years of professional experience (VAE and VAP, accreditations for work experience).
  • Prerequisites: basic knowledge in analytical analysis. 
  • Admissions based on application document.
  • All the candidates (in initial or continuous education) must apply online on e-Candidat:Applications:

Program

The training course lasts 12 months. It starts in early October and is divided into two semesters.
