Department of Chemistry

Undergraduate Program in Chemistry.

Chemistry is key to our understanding of the natural world and to the enhancement of our quality of life and the environment. Advances in chemistry provide the understanding that underpins much of modern science; an understanding that contributes directly to our everyday lives, from the food we eat and the medicines we take, to the environment in which we live. Degrees in Chemistry at CATUC offer the exciting challenge of exploring this science at the molecular level through experiment and theory, together with opportunities to study at the interfaces with other sciences and disciplines either through optional modules or specially structured degree courses.


Mission Statement of the Department of Chemistry

To provide instruction in Chemistry at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to carry out scientific research adapted to the changing needs of the society. The undergraduate programme is designed to provide tools, techniques and thinking in such a way as to enable the graduates to find gainful employment in areas where Chemistry knowledge is required and to have the adequate background necessary for the pursuit of studies and research in Chemistry and related fields at the postgraduate level. The department, through its programmes, also seeks to satisfy the evolving needs of Chemistry and chemical users.

Objectives of Degree Program

The Department of Chemistry trains students to acquire fundamental knowledge and skills in Chemistry. These skills shall then be used for developmental purposes and thereby fostering the dignity of our society.
