The Department of Chemistry started in 1944 and is one of the oldest departments of the College of Natural Sciences. Currently, the department is housed in two buildings of impressive architecture with many facilities for teaching and research. There is a proposal for constructing a third building in order to meet the needs of the increasing student numbers and academic staff expansion.

Department of Chemistry

There are three first degree programs offered by the department: (1) The BSc Chemistry Major Program, (2) the BSc Chemistry Minor Program, and (3) BSc in Industrial Chemistry Program. Details of each of these programs can be found here. In addition, the department also serves students of BSc (Educ) from the College of Education and Extension Studies, BSc in Petroleum Geosciences & Production and BSc in Ethno-botany.

Graduate Degree and Research Studies are an integral part of the activities of the Department. Both MSc and PhD degree programs are offered. The MSc Program is constituted by one year of lectures followed by end of semester examinations, and another year of research ended by submission of a thesis in any one of the five branches: analytical, industrial, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry. The PhD Program is currently by research and thesis only.

Over the years, the Department has done a lot of chemical research, both pure and applied. The results of many of these research endeavours have been published in international journals.

One may ask, ‘Why study Chemistry?’ First of all, Chemistry is a very exciting branch of science. Basically it is about knowing and investigating the structure and reactions of substances of matter. It is a central science bridging many aspects of other sciences, physical and biological, opening a door to many technological developments.

Chemistry graduates have many more career opportunities than graduates of other degrees.
