Science (Group B)
Students who wish to spend more time exploring their interests in the field of chemistry and life science may apply and be admitted to Science (Group B) without a major. They can opt to declare Chemistry as the major upon completion of the first year of study.

Students will study all aspects of chemistry and related disciplines. The general areas covered include analytical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and physical chemistry. The specialized areas include environmental chemistry, medicinal chemistry, biological chemistry, computational and theoretical chemistry, polymer chemistry, and materials chemistry including nanostructures and advanced instrumentation.

The program offers four options:

  • Biomolecular Chemistry Option
  • Environmental and Analytical Chemistry Option
  • Materials Chemistry Option
  • Pure Chemistry Option

Students are provided with excellent general training in both analytical thinking and problem solving. The curriculum, which includes basic training in analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry and modern laboratory techniques and skills, has been designed to give students maximum flexibility in determining the extent of their specialization.

Student Sharing Reference
“The training I have gained so far during the Chemistry program has equipped me with technical knowledge and critical thinking skills. Together with the motivating learning atmosphere created by professors and friendly schoolmates, I have developed a strong passion for studying science here. Meanwhile, the School of Science provides us with many enrichment activities, both academic and extracurricular. Last year, I joined a Career Mentor Training Scheme and the mainland internship program, through which I polished my coaching skills and gained valuable industrial insights to prepare me for my future ahead. It is really a blessing to be a member of this big family.”
