The study of the composition, structure, and the chemical transformations of matter. The main purpose of this narrow field of education is to develop an understanding of the fundamental properties of elements, compounds and materials, and their reactions and transformations.
Chemical Sciences develops skills in:
- application of knowledge of the fundamental properties of elements, compounds and their reactions
- identifying the compositional and energy changes resulting from chemical reactions
- using modern chemical instrumentation for the structural analysis of chemicals.
