Department of Chemical Science and Technology

The Department of Chemical Science and Technology offers programmes in Industrial and Analytical Chemistry. Our programmes explore the structure, characterization, properties and selection of the full range of materials used in the industry today. In addition, the programmes also examine organic, physical and environmental chemistry. We focus strongly on industrial relevance and application throughout the course.
The Department has 13 PhD holders teaching and researching on the various subject areas of Chemistry, as well as mentoring  students. Our peer mentoring scheme assigns groups of continuing students to new students, whom they steer through the learning process. Facilities are available to the student for practical laboratory sessions throughout their learning period, and particularly invaluable during their final-year research project. Other than the University library, there is a well-equipped departmental library.
