Dear student,

Chemistry is a branch of science that deals with the composition, structure, and properties of substances. Generally, coursework for Chemistry is divided into three sections as follows:

  • Inorganic Chemistry
  • Physical Chemistry
  • Organic Chemistry

Chemicals are used in almost everything that we use ranging from medicine, electronics, food products, construction materials etc. Hence, job opportunities after pursuing a course in Chemistry are plenty. Private as well government organisations are on the lookout to hire professionals with in-depth knowledge of chemicals and related areas. However, it is important to note that as Chemistry is a specialised field, priority is given to candidates with masters' or a PhD. Pursuing research programmes and jobs in academic institutions (lecturer, teacher, guest faculty etc.) are among the other options available.
