M.Sc. in Industrial Chemistry

M.Sc. in Industrial Chemistry

Chemical industry has grown rapidly in recent decades, not only in terms of the tonnage produced, but also in the diversity of the products.  These products are of vital importance in our everyday lives and it is extremely difficult to think of anything in the modern society, which does not involve chemistry at some stage of its manufacture.  Clothing, food, drugs and building materials are few such examples.  Ever increasing demand for these products has resulted in both expansion and diversification of chemical industry. A great majority of undergraduates leaving the universities at the end of their period of study seek employment in industry.  In addition to possessing a sound background knowledge in Chemistry, they should be familiar with the special aspects of industrial chemistry and other allied subjects, which are useful to the industrialists in the field of chemical manufacture. Although some basic concepts in Industrial Chemistry are included in undergraduate courses they do not adequately meet the needs mentioned above.


•    An adequate coverage of important aspects of Chemical Industry including Chemistry, Basic Concepts of Chemical Engineering, Chemical Technology and Industrial Economics.
•    The necessary practical training in areas relevant to Chemical Industry.


Applicants seeking admission to this programme must have one of the following degrees/qualifications from a recognized university.

(i)    B. Sc. (Special) Degree in Chemistry or a B. Sc. Special/General Degree with Chemistry as a subject.
(ii)    B. Sc. Degree in Chemical Engineering.
(iii)    Any other qualification accepted to be equivalent to any of the above by the Postgraduate Institute of Science, University of Peradeniya.

Candidates who meet eligibility requirements shall be required to sit a selection examination where their knowledge of Chemistry, Mathematics and English will be examined.  Successful candidates will be called for an interview at which the final selection for admission shall be made. The final decision on eligibility for admission to the Diploma and M.Sc. degree programmes will be determined by the Board of Study in Chemical Sciences of the PGIS.
