Chemistry looks at matter and changes from a molecular point of view. It tries to explain the everyday world in terms of the molecular world. In this way it connects all the related fields to the fundamental ideas of Science. Chemistry also deals with the structure and properties of the simplest particles like atoms and nano-particles to some of the most complicated molecules like DNA and proteins. It studies compounds that are naturally formed and synthesises many others. Chemistry explores changes that are completed within a fraction of a nanosecond and those that take place over millions of years. Some of these changes occur in a single step while some others take place in several hundred steps. Chemistry also sheds light on the changes that take place within living things like plants and animals as well as those that take place in non-living things like the interior of planets and stars.
On the other hand, Chemistry forms the founding stones for many industries and scientific agencies. This includes, but not limited to, synthesis of fertilisers and medicines, production of steel and aluminium to paints and plastics, and making new power sources to monitoring and protecting the environment. To improve the performance or utilization of any existing material knowledge of its Chemistry is essential.
A General Degree with Chemistry as one of the subjects will give you a broad knowledge of these exciting ideas and a hands-on experience on most of them. A Special Degree in Chemistry will prepare you to be a partner in the changes that shape our world for a better tomorrow. An Applied Science in Chemistry will provide an opportunity to strengthen the career development in the industrial sector.
