Introduction

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 to become 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, a practical-based approach, and experiential learning, as individuals orin teams, intending to realise UTP’s seven (7) attributes for a well-rounded graduate model. The programme stresses the need for a firm foundation in Fundamental Chemistry, followed by advanced courses such as Separation Process, Hydrocarbon and Petrochemical, Quantum and Computational Chemistry, Analytical Instrumentation and Molecular Spectroscopy. Students learning experience is also enhanced with the incorporation of Science Team Project and 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

 

Career opportunities for the graduates from the Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Applied Chemistry programme are enormous. They will be able to enter into the scientific workforce in various industries such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, food and cosmetics; as well as in other sectors such as Government, Academia and Research and Development sectors.
