Chemistry is the most central of all the sciences. Much of our understanding of the material world is based on the areas of Chemistry which are conventionally called Inorganic, Organic, Physical and Analytical; but Chemistry is also central to other disciplines such as Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Materials Science, Medicine, Mineralogy, Molecular Biology and Pharmacology.

The Bachelor of Science in chemistry program is accredited by the Canadian Society of Chemistry (CSC).

The program is designed to provide the students with broad basic knowledge in chemistry and basic skills of scientific research. Over the years, our graduates have found employment in some of the leading companies in the field such as PAPCO and GPIC and have pursue graduate studies at some of the high ranking universities in the world.
