Applied Chemistry



The Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Applied Chemistry Programme is aligned with UTP's Mission Statements to produce skilled knowledge workers, addressing the nation's call for more scientists and technologists especially in the areas of Petrochemistry, and Sustainable Chemistry. This programme is developed to nurture students into competent graduates with the knowledge, understanding, skills and values required in our move towards a high income society.


This exclusive programme adopts the multi-mode educational delivery system which emphasises on student-centred learning, practical-based approach and experiential learning, as individuals or in teams, intended to realise UTP's seven (7) attributes for a well-rounded graduate model. The programme stresses the need for firm foundation in Fundamental Chemistry, followed by advanced courses such as Separation Process, Petrochemical Processes, Hydrocarbon Chemistry, Computational Chemistry, Analytical Instrumentation, Quantum Chemistry and Molecular Spectroscopy. Students learning experience is also enhanced with the incorporation of the multidisciplinary Science Team Project and also the compulsory 7-month structured Student Industrial Internship Programme.

In addition to the above, students are given the opportunity to choose their specialisation in any of the following areas:

  • Petrochemistry
  • Sustainable chemistry
