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
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:
In order to graduate with the Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Applied Chemistry, students are required to
obtain a minimum of
127 credit hours and a minimum CGPA of 2.00.
Bachelor of Applied Chemistry with Honours
Choose any of the following sets A or B for Core Specialisation I, II and III and choose one (1) from other Core Specialisation for Core Specialisation IV.
Applied Chemistry students who are interested to enhance their knowledge in management, business and data science will have the option to complete courses offered under Minor. There are four (4) Minor packages available to Applied Chemistry students as follows:
In order to be eligible for Minor, students are required to pass and complete all the courses under the same package (15 credits). All results will be counted in the GPA/CGPA calculation. However, the option to do the Minor is at the students’ discretion and is not compulsory. The total credit hours accumulated under Minor courses will be over and above the graduation requirements of 127 credit hours. The offering of the courses will also be subjected to availability.
