Program Learning Outcomes

The program concentrates on providing opportunities for students to show outstanding performance at the following three levels:

  • Subject knowledge and understanding.
  • Intellectual skills related to the subject.
  • Transferable skills and attitudes.

These learning outcomes may be achieved by providing the following:

  1. Introduction of a wide range of chemistry topics, leading from the fundamentals, in the first two years, to the limits of existing knowledge in selected and advanced topics by the final year.
  2. Reasoning through unfamiliar problems. Reason: means that students use critical and analytical thinking through various problems to be able to understand, analyze and solve.
  1. The tools to investigate a topic in depth, in order to find a systematic approach in analyzing and building up knowledge to reach a solution. In other words the scientific approach to solve a problem under question.
  2. The skills to communicate their knowledge, both writing (report, paper writing using computers) and verbally (in using clearly the scientific language).
  3. The development of teamwork and leadership abilities as well as for “safe laboratory practice”. This is in term of experimental laboratory work, group experimental and field projects.
  4. The development of self-sufficiency, adaptability and the skills needed to acquire new techniques.
  5. Efficiency in using the information acquired, which can be measured by the students’ ability of designing an excellent senior seminar as well as writing special projects to be presented in their sophomore and junior years.
  6. Skills in solving problems of a chemical nature, and in the interpretation of chemical data.
