The Chemical Sciences programs are designed to provide our students with a sound understanding of the principles governing the composition structure, property and the reaction of matter as the related to the living and non living world or substances.

  The use and application of the scientific method goes hand with the study of chemical sciences.


  • To provide students with a broad and balanced foundation of biochemical knowledge and practical skills.
  • To develop in students the ability to apply knowledge and skills to solving theoretical and practical problems in biochemistry.
  • To develop in students a range of transferable skills that is of value in biochemical and non-biochemical employment.
  • To provide students with knowledge and skills base from which they can proceed to further studies in specialized areas of biochemistry or multi-disciplinary areas involving biochemistry.
  • To provide, through training and orientation, an appreciation of the solutory rewards of inter-and multi-disciplinary approach to the solution of complex life problems.
  • To generate in students an appreciation of the importance of biochemistry in industrial, economic, environmental, technological and social development.
  • To instill in students a sense of enthusiasm for biochemistry, an appreciation of its application in different contexts and to involve them in an intellectually stimulating and satisfying experience of the learning and studying.
