Welcome to the Department of Chemical Sciences

The Department of Chemical Science offers a 4-year degree programme leading to the award of BSc degree in Chemistry. The programme aims at preparing students for future careers in the various fields in which a core understanding of the chemical processes is important. Examples include scientific disciplines such as chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering, petroleum engineering, medicinal chemistry, biomedical sciences, biotechnology, environmental sciences, as well as the various health-related disciplines such as medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine.

The programme has been designed to employ practical and theoretical knowledge to meet the requisite demands of research institutes, academic institutions, pharmaceutical industries, material science and technology-based industries in Ghana and beyond.

 

The Bachelor of Science in Chemistry has been designed in response to, and anticipates the demand for university graduates trained in chemistry to support the start-up oil and petrochemical industry, chemical, agrochemical, pharmaceutical industries, as well as the medical and herbal research institutions, and food industries. The establishment of Bachelor of Science in Chemistry will help to produce motivated and highly educated chemists with analytical and problem-solving skills needed for the development of science and technology in Ghana, as well as produce graduates well equipped to pursue careers both in chemical sciences and more broadly in industry and the public sector as a whole.
