This year, 58 new courses have been added in the fields of environmental, food, life and pharmaceutical sciences; data analysis; chromatography; lab management; and analytical methods. There will be a special emphasis on nanotechnology with courses covering nanomaterials, health and safety, and nanotechnology in life science.
