Only those who doesn’t have knowledge in chemistry will freak out if I say that we are ingesting chemicals every single day! Through Applied Chemistry programme especially Halal and Haram Chemistry Concentration, you will understand how each chemical components like carbohydrate, protein, fat and others react to produce different types of food we are consuming every day. In another word, we are studying “The Chemical Romance” in food! From the very first step into such diverse programme like Applied Chemistry, get yourself ready to be hunted by industries out there. So, watch out!

In fact, manufacturing industry plays a vital role in the economic growth of a country. The largest sub-sector that contribute the achievement of manufacturing industry is from food and beverages. (Department of Statistics Malaysia, 2017). While in 2018, 42 countries already have their own halal authority (JAKIM, 2018), showing that halal issues are important now and the awareness can grow even faster. Having knowledge in applied chemistry and halal haram in chemistry will make you to be a perfect choice in this huge demand.
