Course Description

The advancement of chemical technology in the areas of theory, methodology and application demands a scientist to master several basic skills of chemistry. Among them include drawing chemical structures correctly, performing chemical analyses, and predicting mechanisms of chemical reactions accurately. At present, many educational software is available to help scientists perform the aforementioned skills faster and accurate, and this can be done anywhere at any time. Realising this need, Industrial Chemical Technology Programme (IChemTech), Faculty of Science and Technology, USIM takes the initiative to organize ‘A Short Course by IChemTech 2019 – Chemical Structures: Quick Drawing & Searching’. The course offers hands-on training on the use of ChemDraw and ChemSpider, structure-drawing software suites for scientists, with advanced prediction tools. The Course opens to anyone who interested, including teachers, students, and ordinary public.
