Chemistry

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Chemistry is a category of physical science that deals with the structure, composition, and various properties of matter. Some topics which chemistry aims to cover include the formation of chemical bonds, properties of atoms, and the intermolecular forces responsible for giving matter its unique properties.

Students demonstrate that they are capable of acting autonomously and tackling complex subjects in situations that can, at times, prove complex. The project involves a minimum 5-month placement with a company or laboratory either in France or abroad. The Region Lyon is located in the south-east of France, on the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône Rivers. It stands on a geographical crossroads, to the North of the natural corridor of the Rhône valley (which stretches from Lyon to Marseille). With the Lyon-Saint Exupéry international airport and three TGV high-speed train stations, Lyon is connected to all major European cities and the world! Lyon is only 2 hours by TGV to Paris and 1hr40 to Marseille and the Mediterranean. If it's mountains you prefer, the Alps are a mere 90 minutes away by car, the Massif Central only 30 minutes away. Historically, Lyon is an industrial city and therefore houses many petrochemical industries along the Saône and Rhône Rivers, in the so-called ‘chemistry corridor’. Lyon is also the city with the second largest number of students in France, with three universities and many engineering schools. In terms of its population, it’s the 3rd biggest city in France, with over 470,000 inhabitants, and the second largest agglomeration after Paris (2 million inhabitants). [-]

Philosophy Science is generally accepted to be the bedrock of technological development which is the main index of national growth and maturity. Thus scientific orientation and knowledge lead to faster development of human resources and improvement of human welfare. Based on these considerations, an important and urgent national need arises to impart a broad knowledge in basic sciences to those with the right aptitude. Only a sound science base can nurture technology for service to society. The social relevance and acceptability of the scientifically trained are self-evident from this standpoint, the promise of self-realization and actualization can serve as incentive for the pursuit of scientific knowledge. All the postgraduate programmes in the Faculty of Applied Natural Sciences in this university are based on the above philosophy. However, the detailed objectives vary according to the individual disciplines. Objectives In applied Biology, the broad objectives are: To provide well-trained biologists in specialist fields to man relevant positions in Research Institutes, Universities and other institutions of higher learning in the country; To development expertise and facilities so as to permit inter-disciplinary activities and research with other organizations since the science of Biology cuts across many scientific fields and activities including biochemistry, environmental pollution, natural resources conservation, agriculture, stored products research, forestry, silviculture and mineral oil exploration; To collect and store information on organisms of economic importance, as well as present day under-exploited or non-utilized tropical plant and animal species to facilitate species inventory and genetic resources evaluation so as to prevent their possible extinction. Areas of Specialization The Department of Applied Biology offers Postgraduates programs in pest management, plant physiology, Ecology and Environmental biology, Plant Pathology, Genetics, Hydrobiology and Fisheries. Degrees Awarded The Department has designed programmes leading to the award of postgraduates Diploma (PGD), Master of Science (M.Sc), and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees. A Postgraduate Diploma Programmes in Applied Entomology and Pest management, Ecology and Environmental Biology, Hydrobiology and Fisheries The objective of the Post-graduate Diploma is to enable students develop the capacity in tackling the programs caused by agricultural diseases, and pests such as insects mites and nematodes.

The Department offers Postgraduate programmes leading to the award of the following degrees: Postgraduate Diploma (PGD), Masters of Science (M.Sc.), Master of Philosophy ( M.Phil.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Physics. Philosophy Philosophy of postgraduate programmes is anchored on the unbiased and systematic observations, accurate documentation and interpretation of facts and phenomena with a view to generating a body of knowledge. The graduate programme of the Department of Industrial Physics provides a study of: The fundamental principles governing the behavior of the physical universe. The methods of scientific investigations and its applications to the technological problems of today. It places emphasis on the interactions between science, technology and society which is geared towards translating scientific methods into technological breakthroughs which are aimed at solving the problems of the society in which we find ourselves. Aims and Objectives The aims and objectives of postgraduate programmes are: To produce high level man power in the sciences through the acquisition of requisite skills and knowledge, for national development. To develop in science graduates a sense of inquiry capacity for independent research and motivation to extend the frontiers of science and technology. To produce graduates who will be adequately equipped for relevance in the global knowledge economy. To produce graduates who are capable of appropriate scientific principles for solving problem for the promotion of human well being. To produce manpower with optimal competencies and skill to function effectively in the academia and the private sector. The postgraduate programme provides a practical approach to Physics which will be developed from a systematic collection for possible applications in industrial or technological setting. Thus it is hoped that at the end of such a programme, a student must have demonstrated practical ability to carry on original and independent scientific research.

Unit weights should be attached to each course. Definition of Units or Credits Units are loads attached to a course. One unit load is equivalent to one hour per week semester of 15 weeks of lecture or two hours of tutorials or three hours per week of term paper work or laboratory practical per semester of 15 weeks. Programmes All postgraduate students (irrespective of the programme) must take Management and Entrepreneurship and ICT & Research Method as compulsory courses. However any student who has taken them at a particular postgraduate level is exempted at higher levels. PostGraduate Diploma Programmes This programme is intended to serve as a remedial or conversion course for candidates with deficiencies in the field of Physics or those who have studied other courses related to Physics who would want to get properly grounded in Physics. Basic Admission Requirements The criteria for eligibility for admission into PGD programme in Physics will be as follows: All candidates must have five credit passes including English, Mathematics and two other relevant science subjects as. O'Level. Candidates with Bachelors degree from an approved university must obtain a minimum of pass degree in relevant science discipline including Mathematics, Geology, Surveying, Physics Education, Engineering, Computer Science etc. from ESUT or other universities recognized by ESUT.
