About the Program
One of the objectives of the department is to provide a centre of excellence in chemical education and research in Malaysia. Students of the Instrumental Analytical Chemistry program of the University of Malaya are trained to develop their critical, creative and innovative thinking. The department is proud to produce graduates who are highly regarded and much sought after in the work force market. At the moment, the Departmental workforce consists of 52 academic staff and 44 support staff who are involved in either technical or clerical support roles.
The Department offers three programmes, namely, the Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (B.Sc. in Chemistry), Bachelor of Science in Applied Chemistry (B.Sc. in Applied Chemistry) and Master of Science in Instrumental Analytical Chemistry (M.Sc. in Instrumental Analytical Chemistry) (formally known as Master of Science in Analytical Chemistry & Instrumental Analysis). The Department is the first institution of higher learning in Malaysia to receive the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) accreditation for all BSc and MSc programmes. Benchmarking the three offered programmes with those offered by other renowned institute of higher learning via the RSC accreditation would certainly help the Department to develop and expand its programmes in line with international quality and standards.
The Department of Chemistry also offers postgraduate programmes by research, namely, Master of Science by research, Master and Doctor of Philosophy. These programmes form the essence of our research activities. The research conducted in the Department is varied; some researchers focus on fundamental themes while others focus on various aspects of applied chemistry.
