The American Chemical Society (NUS Student Chapter), or NUS ACSSC for short, was founded in 2014 by a group of chemistry undergraduates seeking a two-fold charge: To provide career guidance to fellow peers, as well as to promote chemistry as a choice of study to secondary and junior college students.
The founding executive committee comprised eight members, with one president, two vice-presidents, one secretary, one treasurer, two public relations officers and one programme director.

We seek to offer career guidance to current Chemistry undergraduates by organizing events such as industrial visits, talks with professionals, and summer exchanges.
We also provide academic information to fellow peers through testimonials from club members on research and internship experiences, as well as reviews of interesting ACS papers.
We wish to promote Chemistry as a choice of study to secondary and JC students through running outreach events such as workshops and lessons.
