PhD Chemistry

Program Introduction

Chemistry is truly the central science and underpins much of the efforts of scientists and engineers to improve life for humankind. Many of the luxuries, people have become accustomed to, would not have been possible without recent advancements in chemistry. One must think of all the super strong adhesives, fibers, and building materials that are used every day in construction and production. Without an understanding of chemistry, the development of these materials, in addition to the development of things like prescription drugs, would never have been possible.

The School of Science (SSC) at UMT is offering a PhD degree in Chemistry. It’s a research-intensive PhD degree program that gives chance to talented and motivated scholars to make discoveries in chemical science, biochemistry, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, material chemistry, nano chemistry and related disciplines. The PhD Chemistry program helps the scholars to gain experience by working closely with faculty, peers and seasoned professionals in order to conduct their research in chemistry.

The PhD Chemistry program is designed to prepare scholars for a life time of independent research and scientific leadership in the chemical sciences, through careers in academia, industry and government. The students have the benefit of a flexible schedule, hands-on research opportunities, individual faculty attention, and close relationships with scientists from other departments and disciplines.

Studying chemistry allows students to develop subject-specific and transferable skills which are valued by all employers, meaning future careers of students do not have to be in a laboratory, but also equally valued in industry. The main employers are in the chemical and related industries, such as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, petrochemicals, toiletries, plastics and polymers.
