A chemistry education provides a holistic set of skills (e.g. computational, analytical, numerical and synthetic) and methodologies for looking at the physical world. Chemistry students further have an opportunity to pursue their interests in more specialized sub-disciplines of chemistry through available degree-tracks, designed to serve the country’s needs in three vital areas: environmental, materials and forensic sciences.
(i) The Environmental Chemistry track is expected to promote a sustainable development through environmental monitoring and assessment, green chemistry and renewable energies
(ii) The Materials Chemistry track will contribute to downstream petroleum-based industries such as the manufacture of polymers and plastics.
(iii) The Forensic Chemistry track will support the investigative skills linked with criminology and the police force.
Chemists synthesize life-saving drugs within the pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and life sciences sectors and although this is a nascent industry within the UAE, the BSc in Chemistry program intends to pave the way for training a new generation of Emiratis who can play a leading role in developing this crucial sector of the UAE economy.
Upon successful completion of the degree, the BSc in Chemistry graduates can pursue further studies or careers in business, industry and academia, locally or internationally. Typical employment fields within the UAE and the Gulf region encompass quality control, technical jobs, consultancy or R&D in industrial and chemical laboratories, university and industrial research centers, environmental protection agencies, chemical manufacturing plants, forensic chemistry police, and education.

You need the following GPA score:
Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).
Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).
