Chemistry is a central subject of natural science and one of the most influential areas of modern natural science necessary for connecting scientific and engineering technology. Chemistry is a branch of science that bridges the past and the future, and plays a fundamental, leading and promotional role in the development of related disciplines. As a scientific study of the properties, composition, structure, transformation and application of matter, chemistry is the primary means of discovering and creating new substances. Chemistry is the only science to create or identify novel chemical entities of importance to the society. We can enjoy a high-quality material life and have our needs in various aspects satisfied, including clothing, food, accommodation, transport, health improvement and disease control, all thanks to chemistry. It has become an important supporting pillar of every country’s economy in modern society.
This programme intends to provide undergraduates with well-structured, exhaustive, and fundamental training in modern chemistry. With a considerable emphasis on cultivating students’ laboratory skills and supplement compulsory chemistry courses with relevant laboratory courses, graduates will acquire a rigorous foundation in theory and application, a solid command of the practical experimental and the ability to tackle simple applications of theoretical analysis and practical experimental operation, to understand and explain, solve problems.
