  • AIMS & OBJECTIVES – The programme is designed to equip the students with the knowledge and skills to contribute positively to the economic and industrial development of the country. More specifically, the main objectives of the degree programme can be stated as follows:

    1. To prepare students professionally for participation in the Chemical Industry. It is intended that graduates of this programme will be able to adapt themselves to jobs which are problem solving or results oriented in the chemical, petrochemical, biochemical and allied technological fields e.g. food, environmental, textiles, polymer etc.
    2. To educate and train chemists, most importantly applied chemists, who could fundamentally think about their subject and understand as graduates the meaningful picture of the chemical industry.
    3. To help in the development and encouragement of creative thinking and research aptitudes as a result of having a curios and enquiring mind set.
    4. To create in students appropriate skills and abilities that could enable them manage and administer technological operations within the field of chemistry and allied areas;
    5. To provide students with a thorough grounding in principles and sound knowledge of scientific methods of the chemical sciences.
  • Career Placement –  Studying Chemistry opens doors to a range of sectors and opportunities, meaning the future career of our graduates isn’t restricted to the lab, They can be gainfully employed in various firms as:

    Analytical chemist


    Chemical engineer

    Healthcare scientist, clinical biochemistry

    Forensic scientist



    Research scientist (physical sciences)

    Scientific laboratory technician
