Industrial Chemistry is the branch of chemistry which applies physical and chemical processes on the transformation of raw materials into products that are of benefit to humanity. The goal of the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Chemistry degree program is to produce graduates who will be highly skilled in this activity. This can be accomplished by first giving the students a solid foundation in chemistry, mathematics, and physics.

The Industrial Chemistry graduate is a chemist with knowledge linkages in engineering, chemical processing, economics, and industrial management. This degree involves doing research, developing, and improving properties of products we use every day through the selection of raw materials, designing chemical processes and improving the conditions of production.

Graduates shall be able to:

  • Apply gained knowledge in chemical engineering and chemistry to optimize complex chemical processes in environmental management and general industry and services like water delivery.
  • Master the entire process and extrapolate small scale laboratory chemistry into large scale industrial production.
  • Get ready to work and to apply the gained skills through industry training in the field.
  • Manufacturing and related industries such as petroleum, chemicals, ceramics, cement, and polymers.
  • Food industry.
  • Electronics industry.
  • Mining industry such as iron and steel.
  • Pharmaceutical industries and health-related industries.
  • Government agencies including police, customs, and defense
