B.Sc. INDUSTRIAL CHEMISTRY

INTRODUCTION

B.Sc Industrial Chemistry seek to expose students to the broad area of theory and practice of the fundamental aspects of all branches of Chemistry. Modern Society requires an all round individual as a result of increasing interdependency of the sciences. The Department therefore aims to offer a thorough grounding in theoretical, experimental and operational aspects of Chemistry, as it relates to the Chemical Industry. This will enable Nigeria and Africa to have a new breed of well-trained high-level manpower that can apply Chemistry principles to national and international development. The use of modern analytical tools and their applications to the environment are equally emphasized. In a nutshell the Industrial Chemistry programme focuses on the search for and application of chemical knowledge to solving man’s problems.

GOALS

  • Students should have firm foundations in the fundamentals and application of current chemical and scientific theories.
    Are able to design, carry out, record and analyze the results of chemical experiments.
  • Are able to use modern instrumentation and classical techniques, to design experiments, and to properly record the results of their experiment.
  • Are skilled in problems solving, critical thinking and analytical reasoning.
  • Are able to identify and solve chemical problems and explore new areas of research.
  • Are able to use modern library searching and retrieval methods to obtain information about a topic, chemical, chemical technique, or an issue relating to chemistry.
  • Knows the proper procedures and regulations for safe handling and use of chemicals and can follow the proper procedures and regulations for safe handling when using chemicals.
  • Are able to communicate the results of their work to chemists and non-chemists.
    Understand the ethical, historic, philosophical, and environmental dimensions of problems and issues facing chemists

    OBJECTIVES

    Development of high caliber industrial chemists who will be equipped to man responsible industrial positions as well as self reliant ventures.

    Chemists who will probe into the vast natural resources of Nigeria in order to accumulate relevant chemical data.

    Chemists capable of pursuing postgraduate studies and research in Chemistry.

    Chemists capable of collaborative efforts with other scientists in inter-disciplinary areas.

    Chemists capable of utilizing chemical knowledge and skill in the service of developing national economy and improving man’s environment and his general well-being.

    Train students to be result-oriented in the chemical, petrochemical, biochemical and allied technological fields
