Chemistry is a core of many areas of
modern science and technology, providing fundamental knowledge for fields
such as biochemistry, green chemistry, chemical engineering, pharmacology,
materials science, food science, geology and nanotechnology. Over the last
few decades, the knowledge of Chemistry has been playing an essential role
and has been responsible for many of the most important breakthroughs in
science. Chemistry has also been crucial in taking some of the world's most
exciting ideas and turning them into innovative processes and products which
enormously impacted our everyday lives.
The Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) in Applied Chemistry is comprised of 8 semesters and 128 course
credits. It is
designed to provide a thorough foundation in the various fields of chemistry
and the related sciences. The curriculum covers the fundamentals of organic,
inorganic, analytical and physical chemistry.
Further, the program includes advanced courses which include
analytical chemistry, spectroscopic methods and chromatography and
bio-chemistry. Supplementary courses in mathematics and physics are also
included in the program.
This course will equip you with a package of skills to take with you
in your academic, commercial or industrial future, including the ability to
analyse problems, teamwork, laboratory skills, numeracy and communication.
You will also gain an appreciation for a subject which links so many
