The URFD-CA is one of the four (04) units of the Postgraduate School for Science, Technology and Geosciences (CRFD-STG)
This unit is made of researchers in the domains of Chemistry organized in laboratories and research Teams at the University of Yaounde 1. The staff members of this unit are located in the faculty of Science; the Higher School Teacher Training College (ENS); the Faculty of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (FMSB) and the Advance School of Engineering.
The unit is responsible Master and Doctorate training in Chemistry. Two main options are identified: Organic and Inorganic Chemistry. The specialties include Physical and Analytical Chemistry; Computational Chemistry; Chemistry of Inorganic Materials; Chemistry of the Environment and bio resources; Natural Products research; pharmaceutical chemistry; Drugs Design..
Registration for Master's or Doctorate is subject to selection.
To be eligible for selection in the second year of Master's, the candidate must be a holder of a Bachelors degree in Chemistry or related fields having completed the first year of master's with a Cumulative Point grade of at least 2.4 /4.
