Chemistry graduates from University College Cork are in high demand in Ireland and abroad. Few industries are more profitable, pay as well and are as recession proof as the pharmaceutical and chemical industries and these continue to be growing sectors in the economy. All these sectors rely heavily on chemistry graduates for their future growth. Chemists are employed in product development and process research, quality control and assurance, as well as environmental monitoring and control. A chemistry degree also teaches the skills required in areas as diverse as electronic manufacturing, the food industry, and government laboratories.
