Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to introduce a basic knowledge in chemistry for further studies. After completing this course, the student should be:

  • able to describe the structures of atoms and molecules.
  • able to give the symbols and names for the elements (except for the lanthanides and actinides) as well as naming simple inorganic compounds.
  • able to calculate and solve stoichiometric parameters and problems.
  • aware of fundamental safety regulations for laboratory work.
  • trained in basic laboratory techniques as titrations and spectrophotometric analysis.
  • able to write a laboratory report.
  • able to briefly describe the importance of chemical knowledge in society.

 

Course content

Chemical nomenclature and stoichiometry. Chemical reactions. The gas laws. Thermochemistry. The electronic structures of atoms and molecules. Orbital theory. Important trends within the periodic table.
