In this program, students will learn theories of spectroscopic transitions and their applications in structural elucidations and quantitative analysis. Topics include ultraviolet/visible, infrared, Raman and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy, atomic absorption spectroscopy, atomic and flame emission spectroscopy, chemiluminescence, fluorescence, phosphorescence, light scattering and refractometry.
To earn a certificate, students must successfully complete at least 12 semester credit hours from the courses listed below, earning at "C" or higher in each course with a cumulative minimum grade point average of 3.0/4.0 ("B" average). However, a certificate student who subsequently applies to and is admitted to a master's degree program at IIT will only be allowed to apply approved coursework in which he/she has earned a "B" grade or higher to the master's degree program.
