Industrial chemistry is an experimental as well as theoretical program where process and concept mastery are highly important. In this program, the students learn and apply chemical methods in the designing and synthesis of new multifunctional materials/ substances, the discovery of new structures and the investigation of functions based on acquired knowledge. In the modern era, we can only respond to the expectations and demands from the society when the fundamental chemical knowledge that produces new multifunctional materials is directly related to improving the efficiency and the productivity of devices. The program allows students in building positive attitudes in industry profession and ethics to improve industry quality in the Sultanate.
The taught elements of the program comprise an integrated package of University requirements, College requirements, Major requirements and Technical elective courses. This program will also have an internship/Industrial training (vocational) focus intended to qualify graduates to become Industrial Entrepreneur and practice in a profession of Industrial employments.

Industry is an important source of economic income in any country. Therefore, industrial chemistry is a very important program is it a highly job-oriented course. Graduates from this program will have the skills that qualify them to work in most of the industries. For example, they can get job in any chemical, petrochemical, petroleum, plastic, heavy and fine chemicals, mining and metallurgy, food and agricultural industries. In addition, graduates in industrial chemistry can initiate and operate small to medium scale industries in chemical synthesis, metal refining, synthesis for active pharmaceutical ingredients, oil extraction and processing, soap and sanitary products including cosmetics, etc. Also, they can work in different government/Private agencies and Academic institution as a lecturer, lab technician or research assistant
