The overall aim of the Chemistry programme is to provide students with a strong foundation in all principal areas of chemical science and knowledge in developing career and solving real-life chemical problems, including those in the environmental area, and to meet the needs from government, education, industrial or commercial sectors. The curriculum is designed to equip students with ample knowledge in both pure and applied chemistry so that you are adequately and flexibly trained for both employment and postgraduate studies locally or overseas.
Students admitted into this programme will be introduced to fundamental principles of all principal branches of chemistry and other related scientific disciplines. Knowledge in more specialized areas of chemistry will be acquired through a variety of Major elective courses. Research experience and hands-on laboratory skills are gained through a required Final Year Project.
