Overview

Course Description
This course provides the opportunity for mature and capable students to gain experience in conducting a chemical research project under the direction of staff and faculty supervisors in the Department of Chemistry.
Course Content
  1. Theoretical and experimental research
  2. Wet chemistry
  3. Instrumentation  and analysis
  4. Preparation of report
Learning Activities

In the semester preceding the one during which the research is to be conducted, the student should approach a potential supervisor to discuss a possible research topic.

If the faculty or staff member is willing, further discussions should take place to prepare a proposal to be discussed and approved by the Departmental Chair and Laboratory Supervisor. The proposal is essentially the responsibility of the supervisor and is to be submitted as soon as possible.

After the research is completed and before the first day of exams, the student will submit a brief report to the supervisor.

Means of Assessment

Laboratory Work (75%)

Report (25%)

 

The course is graded on a mastery/non-mastery basis.

Learning Outcomes

The student will be able to:

  1. Use peer-reviewed references and identify a suitable hypothesis with the help of a chemistry faculty or staff member.
  2. Identify the required experimental research under supervision of a chemistry faculty or staff member to investigate the hypothesis.
  3. Employ various analytical techniques to compile any required data.
  4. Analyze the collected data and prepare a short report.
  5. Gain theoretical and experimental knowledge of a specific topic in chemistry through laboratory research.
