Introduction

The program is supposed to span for four semesters. The first two semesters will have common courses in analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. The candidates are expected to have four courses from the specialized courses in the third semester. In addition, they will have the option to choose one or more elective courses. The fourth semester is exclusively devoted to a guided research project.

The program is supposed to span for four semesters. The first two semesters will have common courses in analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. The candidates are expected to have four courses from the specialized courses in the third semester. In addition, they will have the option to choose one or more elective courses. The fourth semester is exclusively devoted to a guided research project. Our M. Sc. program currently offers specialization in the following four areas.

Analytical  Chemistry

This course offers advanced theory and practice of modern instrumental methods of analysis to cover: molecular and atomic spectroscopy, electrochemical techniques, separation science, structural techniques, and other methods. This course also comprises advanced physical, inorganic and organic chemistry.

Fourth Semester Courses

Inorganic  Chemistry

This course offers advanced courses in Inorganic chemistry thorough study of the chemistry and properties of the main and transition metal group elements and their related compounds. It also comprises advanced courses in organic, analytical and physical chemistry.

Fourth Semester Courses

Organic  Chemistry

This course offers an advanced study of organic chemistry with a comprehensive treatment of spectroscopy, reaction mechanism, natural products, heterocycles and photochemistry in addition to advanced level analytical, physical and inorganic chemistry. In addition, there are elective courses in medicinal chemistry, polymer chemistry and dye chemistry.

Fourth Semester Courses

Physical  Chemistry

This course offers an advanced study of physical chemistry providing a more in-depth and extended treatment of the physical principles that govern the properties and behavior of chemical systems at both the macroscopic and sub-microscopic levels, and with applications to other branches of chemistry. This course also offers advanced level analytical, inorganic and organic chemistry.
