Lecturing: Modules with short description


















CEM1A10 – Introduction to General Chemistry

This module focuses on General Chemistry and aims to develop the students' knowledge and comprehension of chemical principles and techniques within general chemistry which will serve as a fundamental basis for further studies in the physical and biological sciences and in engineering. Additionally, the module aims to develop the technical abilities of the student through practical experience in the laboratory.

 

CEM1B01 – Introduction to Physical and Organic Chemistry

This module focuses on Physical and Organic Chemistry with the following basic goals: To introduce students to the concepts of thermochemistry, thermodynamics, basic kinetics (zero and first order reactions), solution chemistry and electrochemistry in relation to technological advancement; to develop the students' understanding of foundational organic chemistry, introducing the student to synthesis and the importance of organic compounds in living systems. The student acquires an appreciation of functional group transformations and stereochemistry. Introductory laboratory skills are imparted to the student via experiments involving some synthesis and comparative techniques.
