Bachelor of Chemistry degrees are awarded to students who have a good grounding in the core areas of chemistry: inorganic, organic, physical, biological and analytical chemistry; and in addition the necessary background in mathematics and physics, while also possessing basic knowledge in several other more specialized areas of chemistry. They build up practical skills in chemistry during laboratory courses in inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. The development of generic skills in the context of chemistry which are applicable in many other contexts and attaining a standard of knowledge and competence will give them access to second cycle course units or degree programs (such as MSc and further on PhD).
Such graduate will have the ability to gather and interpret relevant scientific data and make judgments that include reflection on scientific and ethical issues. They will communicate information, ideas, problems and solutions to informed audiences and have skills which fit them for entry-level graduate employment in the general workplace, including the chemical industry.
