The School of Chemical Sciences and Food Technology offers researchers which include specialization in Chemistry and Food Science. The specializations or research offers in the field of chemistry includes natural products, analytical chemistry, Environmental chemistry, synthesis of an inorganic compound, kinetics and catalysis as well as polymer and polymer composites. For the area of food science, it covers food chemistry and analysis, food additives, edible biopolymers, food acceptance, sensory evaluation, food safety and quality, food microbiology and fermentation, community nutrition, food processing, inorganic compound, liquid natural rubber, colloidal chemistry, catalysis, environment, natural product from plant, theory and simulation and oils and fats chemistry
The master program by thesis emphasizes research work to train scientists to be more capable to carry out fundamental and applied research and to support UKM as a Research University. Research or specialised areas offered by the Chemistry Program are Natural Products, Analytical Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry, Synthesis of Inorganic Compound, Catalysis, green polymers which include Thermoplastics, synthetic polymers and polymer composite.
Each candidate in this program must complete and pass 8 credit hours course as a fulfilment for the degree of Master of Science. The results of the research will be written out as a thesis.
The compulsory courses offered are as follows:
- Research Methodology
- Laboratory Research Skill
