Applied Chemistry

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 scientific disciplines.

Choosing to study Chemistry can open the door to an exciting range of career options. Whether you dream about being at the cutting edge of research, learning how to analyse and think critically, or just want to help make the planet a better place, a B.Sc in Applied Chemistry will give you highly sought-after skills for a huge range of careers—from the sciences and beyond.

With the massive technology advancement over the next decade in various chemical manufacturing and processing industries such as pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, agrochemicals, polymers, petroleum, metals, electricity, steel and mining, demands for chemistry graduates are increasing. Moreover, chemistry graduates can seek opportunities in fields including analytical and quality control laboratories or as environmental chemists.
