Message from the Dean
The general objective of this programme is to train competent researchers who can conduct independent and original research in specific geoscience fields.
For several years now the department, through donor agencies and collaborative links with overseas universities, has acquired a number of modern research facilities, including an HPLC, U.V. Spectrophotometer, gas chromatographic equipment, atomic absorption equipment, and plenty of small teaching and research equipments. Members of staff have undertaken a number of research projects and many staff members have published papers in International journals.
The Master of Science Degree program in Chemistry is designed to provide the first graduate degree for students who expect to continue on to advanced graduate study in chemistry. It can also be used to extend the competence of students who anticipate employment in chemical industries, in government laboratories, or as secondary/college school teachers.
