Chemical Sciences

Course Overview
Admission Requirements

The curriculum is designed to train Chemists who are knowledgeable, highly motivated  professionals who are capable to train other people both in applied and natural sciences.The programme is also designed to develop confidence in the Chemistry teachers who will enhance their abilities to adapt to the changing situation in a technologically -oriented global society.


The objectives of the Department are to:
  •  To train teachers who are very conversant, in broad sense, with theories, principles and application of Chemistry so that they could be thoroughly resourceful, adaptive and innovative in their later employment whether in the field of chemical research, in university or school teaching, in industry or on their own;
  • To train competent and highly knowledgeable Chemistry teachers for Senior Secondary Schools, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education;
  •  To train Chemistry teachers who will be able to motivate students interest in Chemistry through the use of appropriate teaching strategies at all levels of post-primary and post-secondary educational institutions.
  • To train teachers who will be well-equipped to proceed for higher degrees either in Chemistry or Chemistry Education.


Below are the list of Programme Under Chemical Sciences
