Portal Information


The objective of the organization is to strengthen students’ knowledge in chemical health educational resources, including internships, employment, volunteer and all other related issues by sharing knowledge and experiences. This could be achieved by putting their awareness concepts into practice via interaction between students themselves and between students and the community. By getting involved with the organization, students will develop strong professional relationships with their peers and other associations which is a basic necessity for social connection in a working environment.
