Undergraduates

​​​​​

Chemistry is a versatile discipline that prepares students for a wide variety of careers in pharmaceutical, petrochemical, food, cosmetics, materials, and other industries, as well as professional occupations in education, government policy, and consulting.

Here at the Division of Chemistry and Biological Chemistry, we offer a rigorous undergraduate programme in chemistry and biological chemistry, taught by world-class academics who are passionate about teaching, supported by state-of-the-art teaching facilities, laboratory facilities and advanced instruments.

BSc (Hons) in Chemistry and Biological Chemistry

The BSc in Chemistry and Biological Chemistry programme is a four-year direct-honours programme emphasising problem-solving, laboratory exercises, and project work.

Our curriculum meets the American Chemical Society (ACS) guidelines, ensuring that our students are qualified to be professional chemists or to enter graduate school in the chemical sciences. The programme begins with the fundamentals of modern chemistry, including organic and biological chemistry, inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, and forensic science. Students go on to study advanced and industrially-relevant topics including organometallic chemistry, spectroscopy, green chemistry, and drug design. In each year of study, students have the opportunity to do a research project to hone their creativity and explore the frontiers of science.

Fourth year students have the opportunity to do a final-year research project under the personal supervision of one of our faculty members, or undertake a 22-week professional internship in Singapore's chemical sector to get a head-start in employment.
