II- MISSION STATEMENT

The Department of Chemistry seeks to foster intellectual and professional development of each student by providing a strong undergraduate training that emphasizes field techniques and independent research. The chemistry courses provide in-depth study of the basic principles and, in accordance with the Higher Teacher Training College (H.T.T.C) Bambili mission, stress the application in the solution of the problem of our society. The Chemistry programmes is sufficiently flexible, allowing students during the first two years of study to have background knowledge of related science courses appropriate to their subsequent professional needs. In the final year of the programme students are required to undertake independent research project, under the supervision of a member of staff, in selected areas of Chemistry or Pedagogy. Upon graduation, most students seek employment directly, often in teaching, in industry and in government service in varied capacities from the purely scientific to administrative and economic. A few will pursue further study, either in Chemistry or in such Chemistry-oriented field as oil and mineral exploration, meteorology, material science electronics, nuclear engineering science etc.

Because of these diverse interests, the undergraduate programme in chemistry has been designed.

  1. To impart basic competence in the fundamental of the main branches of basic experimental and theoretical chemistry.
  2. To offer opportunity of acquaintance with some of the extensions and applications of chemistry and its connections with other disciplines.

To permit a student who so desires to combine the study of chemistry with some appropriate selection from other disciplines as a basis for a contemplated chosen career.
