Programme Aims and Objectives

This major provides students with a firm foundation in traditional chemical sciences with a focus in analytical chemistry, environmental chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and physical chemistry. Students are also offered a wide range of contemporary elective courses of a diverse nature such as computational chemistry, cosmetic chemistry, food chemistry, forensic chemistry, industrial chemistry, green chemistry, materials chemistry, medicinal chemistry, and supramolecular chemistry. The major puts strong emphasis on discovery-enriched curriculum, outside-classroom activities, interactive elements, and independent learning. Thus, students have the opportunity to undertake a directed study, project, local and non-local internship and exchange programme. The major is designed to train and produce chemists who are able to pursue a developing career in local and regional industrial, commercial, government, education, and research sectors.
