Program Learning Outcomes
Knowledge-Based Learning Outcomes
Graduates will be able to:
- Master a broad set of theoretical and experimental chemical knowledge concerning the fundamentals in the basic areas of the discipline (organic, inorganic, analytical, physical and biological chemistry).
- Solve problems competently by identifying the essential parts of a problem and formulating a strategy for solving the problem. They will be able to rationally estimate the solution to a problem, apply appropriate techniques to arrive at a solution, test the correctness of the solution and interpret their results critically.
- Use computers in data acquisition and processing and use available software as a tool in simulation, computation and data analysis.
- Use modern library search tools (e.g., SciFinder) to locate and retrieve scientific information about a topic, chemical technique or an issue relating to chemistry.
Performance/Skills-Based Learning Outcomes
- be able to understand the objective of their chemical experiments, properly carry out the experiments and appropriately record and analyze the results.
- be able to use standard laboratory equipment, modern instrumentation and classical techniques to carry out experiments both singly and in teams.
- know and rigorously follow the proper procedures and regulations for safe handling and use of chemicals.
- be able to communicate the concepts and results of their laboratory experiments clearly and concisely to both chemists and non-chemists through effective writing and oral communication skills.
