Minor in Chemistry & Biological Chemistry (admitted after AY2011-2012)

Overview

The Division of Chemistry and Biological Chemistry in the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences offers a Minor in Chemistry and Biological Chemistry to all NTU students except students who are majoring in Chemistry and Biological Chemistry. The purpose of this programme is to prepare non-Chemistry and Biological Chemistry students for a variety of career opportunities related to Chemistry and Biological Chemistry. The programme emphasizes the crucial connections of Chemistry and Biological Chemistry with other sciences. Therefore, it is extremely useful for students majoring in Biological Science, Material Science, Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Education, Mathematics and Physics, who want to have some training in the essential aspects of chemical sciences.
