Chemistry plays a central role in modern science and engineering, not only because of the insights it gives on the composition, properties, and reactivity of matter but also because of its wide-ranging applications. This course seeks to consolidate some of the important fundamentals of chemistry that underlie many topics and principles across the physical sciences and engineering, bringing together molecular structure, reaction mechanisms, the driving forces behind chemical reactions, and methods of chemical analysis and structure determination.
Workshops and laboratory classes complement lectures by consolidating learning and developing problem-solving and hands-on practical skills.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
This course develops materials of key importance in the physical sciences and engineering. Topics covered:
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
1st Attempt: 1 two-hour written examination (50%), continuous assessment (on-line tests) (30%) and lab work (20%).
Regular class workshops and consolidation classes allow students to monitor their learning. Multiple choice tests from the course textbook publisher are available online for each chapter.
Marks for lab experiment follow-up tests and continuous assessments are available online as soon as the assessment is submitted. Full feedback, including grade, correct answers and reference to course textbook (where available) are available after the assessment deadline. Students can also see the assessment class average mark, to compare their performance with the class as a whole. Informal discussion with students in lab sessions. All of the course team have "open door" policies for meeting students.
