After gaining 13-16-units of basic science trainings in the common first year by the Science Faculty, students can select the “Analytical and Testing Sciences” programme as their major in the second year of study. The Department of Chemistry is the hosting Department for this group of students. Students are required to complete 36-unit core courses offered by Biology, Chemistry and Physics Department.
In addition to build up the students with sufficient chemical knowledge through a number of chemistry core courses including analytical, organic, inorganic, physical chemistry, instrumental and advanced instrumental analysis, students will be exposed to “Foundation in Bioanalysis” course and “Instrumentation and Data Acquisition Laboratory” course offered by the Biology and Physics Department, respectively. To provide students with essential knowledge in chemical and material testing industry, students are required to take “Materials Testing and Characterization“ and “Chemical Testing Laboratory Management and Accreditation” course. A variety of major elective courses targeting on different sources of analytical samples will be offered. To sharpen the problem solving skills of the students, all students are required to elect 6-unit independent project in their final year of study.
