The Doctor of Science program in Industrial chemistry is designed to prepare students to be professionals, to develop students’ capacities to understand issues and problems at the frontiers of knowledge and to make significant contributions to knowledge. The program’s overall educational goals are to provide advanced training in Applied Chemistry research, to develop new knowledge in science, and to disseminate the knowledge gained through the appropriate channel. These educational objectives can be itemized as follows:

  1. Produce researchers with specialized knowledge in Industrial chemistry, 
  2. Train Industrial Chemists who are well versed in the general body of knowledge in the applied chemistry,
  3. Produce competent researchers in applied chemistry who can communicate new and innovative research findings to scientists and engineers worldwide,
  4. Increase the number of doctorates in science needed for nation building.

In order to achieve these aims and objectives, the major areas of focus offered by the department are:

  • Food and drug chemistry
  • Natural products exploitation
  • Petroleum and gas
  • Analytical chemistry  
  • Catalysis
  • Applied spectroscopy
  • Miscellaneous materials

PhD in industrial chemistry program deepens and widens the acquired knowledge in MSc program through a related research within at least 3

COURSE SUMMARY

You will study the following modules:

First Semester

  • Advanced Instrumental Analysis
  • Forensic analytical chemistry
