Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry is the first Institution of higher learning in Malaysia to receive the prestigious Royal Society of Chemistry, UK accreditation for its BSc (Chemistry) and BSc (Applied Chemistry) programme since August 2012. One of the objective of the Department is to provide a centre of excellence in chemical education and research in Malaysia. Student from the department are trained to develop their critical, creative and innovative thinking. The Department is proud to produce graduates who are highly regarded and much sought after in the work force market. 


Benefits

At the end of the program, graduates with a Bachelor of Science (Chemistry) are able to:

1. Master knowledge related to the field of chemistry.

2. Perform chemistry laboratory procedures, to solve problems, to record and to analyze data and to present experimental results effectively.

3. Demonstrate social expertise for environmental sustainable development in the practice of chemistry and management of the flow of activities and tasks with the highest sense of responsibility.

4. Practice ethical values and professionalism in chemistry practice and to prioritize the importance of client, field of work and society.

5. Communicate effectively and confidently, both orally and in writing and to be able to work independently and in group and as a leader.

6. Use scientific expertise in the practice of chemistry and problem solving in all the tasks given effectively.

7. Plan research projects using information technology in the practice of chemistry, time and resource management efficiently.

8. Use entrepreneurship expertise and efficient management skills in implementing chemistry research projects.

Career Opportunity

Courses offered by the department meet the current requirements to accommodate job and career advancement. Chemistry is recognised as a professional field by Malaysian Institute of Chemistry and to date, our chemistry graduates have filled the job market in both public and private sectors. Job opportunities are available in basic research and development areas in research institutions such as FRIM, SIRIM, MARDI, PETRONAS, MPOB and IMR. In addition, graduates are employed in the teaching profession in schools, colleges and universities. Career opportunities are also available in the chemical and manufacturing industries, oil and gas industries, petrochemicals, energy and fuel industries, polymer and materials, electronics, sales and marketing, and new growth areas of green and sustainable technologies.
