What you will learn in this program
Chemists ask questions such as: How can I make this product better? Is food safe to eat? Are there new ways to create energy?
Chemistry plays a role in almost everything we do. As a central science, it's closely connected with biology, math and physics. During the course of your studies, much of your learning will occur while actively working on problems in class, during tutorials, and in the laboratory. You'll gain the experimental and theoretical background for career opportunities through completing the co-op program and participating in research, product and food development, education, and more.
Chemists have global career opportunities in areas such as the development of fuels, plastics, drugs, foods, new materials, and other consumer products. A degree in chemistry can also be used as a stepping-stone to another professional degree such as law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or dentistry.
Courses you'll take:
Classical Physics, Foundations of Chemistry (Change and Equilibrium), Foundations of Chemistry (Structure and Bonding), Introductory Calculus, Mechanics
Admission requirements and information
Lab work - Learn how to use tools and develop techniques within a supervised laboratory setting.
