What is Chemical Sciences with Medicinal Chemistry?

This chemistry degree focuses on how chemistry can be used for medicinal applications - including drug design, synthesis, and delivery. Graduates of this program will have skills and expertise in synthetic chemistry applicable for the pharmaceutical and other industries. The program is recognized by the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Institute of Chemistry of Ireland.

Career Opportunities

Graduates can anticipate working in the pharmaceutical industry facilitating the development of new and better medicines as well as the chemical (paints, dyes, adhesives, inks), and allied industries (food, beverages, medical devices, cosmetics, semiconductors). The skill-set developed provides the graduate with an excellent basis for working in a variety of areas including production support, quality and assurance, technical services, research and development and technical sales. Graduates can also take a career in the teaching profession.

Learning Outcomes

The 4 year degree course is designed around a core chemistry syllabus in organic, inorganic, and physical chemistry and incorporates analytical chemistry. The medicinal chemistry component is introduced in the first year of the course and built on in subsequent years. In second year, chemical and pharmaceutical processes and technology are explored and themes developed in third and fourth year. The degree course has a holistic approach to its subject matter to prepare students for the employment market. A key feature in Year 3 of the course is the placement abroad, which begins in Semester 2. Access to a suite of modern instruments and equipment ensures that a high standard of laboratory skills is achieved. Important transferable skills such as communication, teamwork, and planning, problem-solving and critical analysis are also developed during the degree course. ‘The Program is recognized by the Institute of Chemistry in Ireland for Graduate Membership and accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry. In addition it is recognized by The Teaching Council for teaching Chemistry to Leaving Certificate level.’

What other options do I have after completion?

Students can continue their studies on taught or research programs (Masters, PhD) at DIT or other institutions as well as professional courses such as the Postgraduate Diploma in Education.

Module Listing
