Case Study

Doing this internship enabled me to discover that I love analytical chemistry. It also enabled me to develop interpersonal communication skills, as I have to constantly discuss with my teammates when executing projects or tasks in the laboratory. Apart from that, this internship allowed me to develop the skill of paying attention to details. There are occasions when I caught details which may seem small but can leave impacts in terms of safety or laboratory work.
