About Department

Brief History

Undergraduate Chemistry program consists of five years; one year English prep class and 4 year Chemistry courses. 30% of the education is in English. Course modules consist of Analytical, Inorganic, Physical, Biochemistry and Organic options. The BSc in Chemistry degree is based on 240 ECTS credits of achievement. In order to obtain the BSc in Chemistry degree, students must accumulate 240 ECTS credits and successfully complete all of the core and optional courses. To pass the programme, candidates must score average cumulative GPA scores of at least 2.00 over 4.00 point. Compulsory core modules in the first year are basics of Chemistry, Computer, Physics, and Mathematics. The second and third years are organized to develop students theoretical knowledge in the core chemistry modules of Analytical, Inorganic, Physical, Organic and Biochemistry. The main objective of the program is to transfer chemistry knowledge into a wide variety of life ranging from industry to research.

Profile of The Programme

Undergraduate Chemistry course is a full-time study combining one year English course and 4 years general Chemistry. Compulsory core modules in the first year are basics of Chemistry, Computer, Physics, and Mathematics. The second and third years are organized to develop students theoretical knowledge in the core chemistry modules of Analytical, Inorganic, Physical, Organic and Biochemistry. The fourth year is designed to allow students to select one of the above modules of their interest to specialize in and gain skills in the lab techniques and develop a rational approach to the industrial problems. Chemistry Students, who graduate from a degree program, will receive the title of -chemist- and are entitled to do MSc and PhD at the Institute of Science.

Access to Further Studies

Candidates successfully completed the undergraduate degree level, can enter the graduate programs such as MSc and PhD with the condition of minimum required score from the ALES and from foreign language (UDS, TOEFL, IELTS, KPDS, etc.) exams.

Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading

Attendance to at least 70% of theoretical courses, at least 80% of practical lab work is mandatory. Students are subjected to at least one midterm and one final exam for each course. The contribution of mid-term is 40% and the final exam is 60%. The marks from homework, lab exams, quizzes, etc. can contribute to the midterm score. All exams are evaluated over 100 points. In order to be successful in the undergraduate program students must score at least 50 points in the final exam. Students received AA, BA, BB, CB and CC grades are considered successful. However, the student´s with an overall GPA of at least 2.00 the DC and DD grades are treated as conditional pass.

Graduation Requirements

To complete the program, it is mandatory to pass the core and optional courses with 240 ECTS and achieve a minimum cumulative GPA scores of at least of 2.00 over 4.00 point.
