    Full Accreditation
    Department: Chemical Sciences
    • Duration: 5 years


    The disciplines of Science are the foundation of technological development and advancement with attendant contributions to national growth and development. B. Tech degree programme in Biochemistry is structured to train students in biology/chemistry oriented academic environment - specifically, understanding the Chemistry of living organisms and metabolic activities taking place within the system of living organism (Plant and Animals) in relation to revealing its alteration effects as apparent in human physiological disorders and diseases.

    The biochemistry courses are structured to allow assortment of theoretical concepts with their applications in a growing scientific world, growth of chemical industries coupled with the training of professional Biochemists has an enormous influence on human life and paramount in national development

    On these premise, Biochemistry programme would be involved in the following:

    1. Provision of basic education in the science of biochemistry.
    2. Produce graduates who will be sound in basic biochemical principles and techniques also who will possess good character that can be employed in chemical and allied industries, brewery, food and beverage industries, research institutes, academics and self-employed thereby contributing to national development.
    3. Provide centre of excellence in Biochemistry at postgraduate level to provoke academic staff to carry out research and to encourage internationally acclaimed biochemists for collaboration.
    4. Provide adequate services to students and staff from other programmes that require the knowledge of biochemistry.
