The aim of the theory subject "Chemistry", taught in the first academic year of several grades at the University Jaume I, is to provide a broad overview about general chemistry. However, the subject should be adapted to the structure, objectives and curricula of each grade. In this paper, a comparison of the course syllabi of the Chemistry subjects taught in the "Chemistry grade" and at several "Engineering grades" (Agricultural, Mechanical, Electrical, Industrial Technology and Chemical) is detailed. The differences and similarities of the two subjects are discussed: general characteristics, justification, semester of teaching, involved teachers, departments and areas of knowledge, structure, content, competences, learning outcomes, number of credits, grouping of students, housework, numerical problems, didactic units and evaluation. The course syllabi of the subjects have been found similar, but they have been adapted to the interests of the student, the importance of the subject within the whole curricula of the grade and the expected utility in the future career of the students. In "Chemistry grade", the content is wider and deeply explore the theoretical concepts and to strongly improve the chemistry background, which would be essential for the understanding of the following academic years. In the "Engineering grades", the content has been limited to provide a basic knowledge of chemistry, focusing on the application in practical situations and the resolution of numerical problems by approaching the correct mathematical equations.
