Science that invokes the senses

"Being the pioneer batch of DPCS students was one of the best choices I've made thus far. The unique curriculum was extremely thoroughly planned out. It gave us theoretical lessons and valuable insights to the fragrance and formulation industries. I wholly enjoyed both my internships from which I learnt many things and was introduced to many wonderful friends. These three years have been an amazing experience and I'm looking forward to the future opportunities this diploma has to offer."
