Advanced Centre of Environmental Studies and Sustainable Development (ACESSD) & Inter University Instrumentation Centre

Jointly announce SHORT TERM TRAINING PROGRAMMES in Analytical Instrumentation ( HPLC, GC, FT-IR & IC) During May 13 - 15, 2013

The Advanced Centre of Environmental Studies and Sustainable Development (ACESSD) is an Inter University Centre of Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, established in December 2009 by the Government of Kerala. The Centre has been envisaged as a platform where all branches of science as well as social sciences converge so as to facilitate inter-disciplinary Academic, Research and Extension programmes. Inter University Instrumentation Centre, established in 2011, serves the research communities in all the Universities in Kerala by initiating advanced level research in various interdisciplinary areas which require state-of-the-art equipment facilities.The objective of IUIC is cater to the needs of all the Science Departments of the University and to assist the Industries, R&D organizations and Higher Education Centers by providing highly sophisticated testing and calibration facilities, material analysis facility, R&D support, consultancy services and training programs.

Advanced Centre of Environmental Studies and Sustainable Development (ACESSD)-An Inter University Centre and Inter University Instrumentation Centre (IUIC) of Mahatma Gandhi University jointly announce a continuous training programme in Analytical Instrumentation with a view to give basic understanding of various sophisticated analytical techniques and to discuss the cutting-edge research using these techniques. Hands on experience in chromatographic, spectroscopic and microscopic instruments is another aim of the workshop. The training programme envisages fostering the analytical skill and better work culture of researchers. The programme will be conducted in collaboration with the Inter University Instrumentation Centre (IUIC) of Mahatma Gandhi University. The target group will be researchers and teachers of various universities/colleges in Kerala. The training will be conducted in batches during 2013 - 2014. Each programme will be of 3 to 4 days duration. Certificate will be issued to all participants.

The following areas/techniques will be covered in the training programme.

  1. Liquid Chromatography (HPLC, LC-MS
  2. Gas Chromatography (GC)
  3. Fourier Transform Infrared spectrophotometer (FT-IR)
  4. Ion Chromatography (IC)
