School:University of Ottawa/Université d'Ottawa
Faculty:Faculty of Science
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op; Honours
Field of Study:Chemistry, General
Description:Chemistry comprises many specialized fields and interacts with all other areas of science. It is a central science of vital importance to mankind. Theoretical chemistry is closely linked with mathematics and physics. Physical chemistry involves precise physical measurements and meshes with physics. Inorganic chemistry has close ties with heterogeneous catalysis, material science and geology. Organic chemistry extends into the fields of biochemistry, immunology, pharmacology and biology. The study of chemistry ranges from abstract concepts to experimental problems, from quantitative measurements to qualitative effects, from the reactions of atoms to the properties of large polymers. Applications in basic chemistry have given us better drugs, plastics, fertilizers, textiles, paints and fuels. In addition, knowledge of chemistry is essential not only in our ability to monitor, understand and ultimately improve the quality of the environment, but also in the development of new sources of energy.The extended French stream is available with this program.
