    Course Introduction
    The course will introduce the student to the fundamental theoretical and practical principles of the Chemical sciences. Students will be encouraged to develop problem solving skills and apply these to the solution of real chemical problems.
     
    Course Aims
    The aims of this course are to:
    1. Introduce students to the basic theory and experimental methods of chemistry
    2. Encourage students to apply the knowledge and skills gained to practical situations in the chemical, physical, biological, environmental, health and material sciences
    3. Provide knowledge and skills fundamental to other courses with chemistry requirements
    This is a core course of the Bachelor of Science program, in which students are expected to graduate with an understanding of the fundamental aspects of chemical science. This course also forms the necessary basis for future study of chemistry in the BSc.
