Course Description

CHEMISTRY is the science of matter which constitutes every single material. The chemical elements are the building blocks of all matter, whether it is living or nonliving; earth, water and air around us, animals and plants, food or synthetic materials. This gives chemistry a central place in the basic sciences, as it is linked with other disciplines from biological sciences to physics, medical, earth and environmental sciences, as well as engineering.

The Bachelor of Science Honours in Petroleum Chemistry is one of the three programs in Chemistry Department was accredited by The Royal Society of Chemistry, the world’s leading chemistry community, advancing excellence in the chemical sciences. The Bachelor of Science Honours in Petroleum Chemistry incorporates the traditional chemistry areas with an emphasis on petroleum chemistry. It has been designed to meet the challenges of a rapidly evolving society, and in response to national aspirations. The Department has, over the years, continually revised the program and developed new courses relevant to the nation needs. Students pursuing a Bachelor of Science Honours in Petroleum Chemistry are required to carry out a project in their final year under the supervision of lecturers. Industrial training is a compulsory for all the students. Industrial training provides students with the necessary practical exposure and skills and assists the students in becoming a successful professional chemist in the future.
