The Department of Chemistry collectively strives to expand the frontiers of chemical knowledge through innovative research and teaching. Understood as a community of scholars, the department houses multiple educational and scholarly activities by faculty, postdoctoral researchers, graduate and undergraduate students, all contributing to the advancement of the chemical sciences.

Chemistry is often described as the Central Science, highlighting its importance to numerous scientific disciplines, such as Biology, Biomedical and Chemical Engineering, Forensics, Geosciences, Materials Science and Toxicology. Therefore, we aim to provide students a modern and well-rounded education in chemistry, which emphasizes its relevance to many other areas of knowledge. Our undergraduate education provides the best classroom and laboratory instruction in chemistry, and equips the student with a solid background for future studies in professional or graduate schools. The graduate program trains new generations of chemists to take on challenging research, teaching and administrative roles in the society.
