The Department of Chemistry & Nanoscience offers a comprehensive program on the fundamentals of chemistry for students who wish to have a background for graduate study in chemistry as well as for students who want a professional job in related fields.

The curriculum covers various fields of chemistry including analytical, physical, polymer, organic, inorganic, and bio- chemistry. It also provides an opportunity for research experience in the laboratory throughout the senior year.

History
History

1951

The Department of Chemistry was established , first at the College of Education, and then at the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

1982

The department moved to the newly constructed science building complex and joined the College of Natural Science, where it still remains. The Department of Chemistry has granted bachelor's degrees to 2500 students since its foundation

Currently The Department of Chemistry consists of 30 faculty members actively engaged in research and education and 280 undergraduate students

The Aim of Education

The aim of the undergraduate program is to provide each student a broad instruction in basic chemistry through lectures and experiments. The main goal is to develop and produce top quality women graduates with the ability to become leaders in the fields of chemistry.

Special Features

Chemistry and nanoscience is a discipline founded on the fundamental, physiochemical understanding of the synthesis of matter at the atomic, molecular, and macro scale. Having recently joined with the nanoscience department, we prepare students to readily engage in fields of critical importance today such as energy, environment, biomaterials, photonics and other applied sciences. By offering courses on physical chemistry, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, polymer chemistry, biochemistry and nanoscience, students are encouraged to explore and choose their specialty in chemistry and nanoscience. Research opportunities in world-renowned laboratories within the department also help students build their research capacity in both natural and applied sciences. With the skills and training acquired through our program, students are able to actively lead and contribute to the development of science and technology for the 21st century.

Careers and Graduate School Destination

Most graduates work in major universities and research centers throughout the country. Others apply their scientific knowledge and skills in diverse areas such as educational and governmental institutions as well as commercial industries.
