After completing the requirements for obtaining a Bachelor's degree in Applied Chemistry, the graduate is expected to be able to:
- Develop acquired theoretical and practical knowledge through self-learning skills and access to modern scientific sources and references.
- Apply theoretical information to explain observations, provide solutions to problems, and even make creative contributions to research, development and inventions related to chemistry.
- Understand the foundations of the various chemical industries, contribute to their development, and develop appropriate solutions to the problems they may face.
- Employ and apply the acquired chemical skills in innovative (non-traditional) investment fields, which contribute to economic growth and solve the problem of unemployment.
- Practice and compete in the labor market, armed with leadership skills, communication, self-marketing, and highlighting capabilities.
- Establish own businesses or sharing with others in modern economically viable fields, and the ability to manage and develop them in a scientific way.
- Provide innovative practical solutions to the environmental problems prevalent in the country (such as pollution, water, energy, ...).
- Teach theoretical chemistry subjects and laboratories for all levels in schools, and train students to adhere to the principles of public safety in the laboratory, to deal with devices and chemicals in a safe manner, and to avoid practices that harm health and the environment.
- Supervise the production and quality control of imported and manufactured goods in the production and service sectors and provide consultations to the private and public sectors.
- Complete the educational attainment in postgraduate studies in various local and international universities in the fields of pure or applied chemistry.
- Respect the ethics of scientific research and the ethics of the profession in various fields (academic, research and professional) and taking into account honesty in writing research, reports and recommendations.
