Department of Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry is a vital, expanding hub of scientific inquiry with deep historic roots and a ready grasp on the future.
The Department of Chemistry was formed in 2010 to consolidate the Mawlana Bhashani Science and Technology Universitys broad-ranging and cutting-edge research in the fundamental discipline of Chemistry. The Department is ongoing to place a tradition of great importance on research efforts which comes from the belief that the presence of first-rate researchers will undoubtedly raise the quality of education. The members of the Department of Chemistry are instilled with a strong desire to seek and investigate unknown areas and have left a legacy of important work in their respective fields. The Department has launched the most contemporary syllabus among the nation. To cope with the global challenges in national and international job market, it would be needed more and more innovative and demandable education in field of Chemistry (especially Biological Chemistry, Nano-chemistry and Computational Chemistry) as these are more life related. The Department is going to launch this type of courses in order to fight against the life threatening disasters. Chemistry studies the nature of materials in terms of the structure and dynamics in atomic and molecular dimension. Students in this department are trained in research to elucidate molecular structure and dynamics of chemical reactions, to discover new synthetic reactions and new chemical compounds and to analyze chemical processes in living organism and on the earth.
Aims and Objectives
The Department is leading to achieve the following objectives:
- To teach the global contemporary courses of Chemistry which are not available in Bangladesh.
- To produce highly skilled personnel who will be capable of doing research in every aspects of Chemistry.
- In order to better understand the computer language of Chemistry, this department will establish one well-equipped computer laboratory.
- To produce manpower and expertise in new arena of Chemistry.
The Department offers a 4-year program of Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. An academic year consists of two semesters and each semester comprises of 14 weeks. Therefore, the whole program can be completed within 8 semesters. To become a graduate from this Department each student has to complete 160 credit hours. The program is designed to produce highly skilled graduates in Chemistry. It gives students the opportunity to acquire knowledge in recent branches of Chemistry especially Biological Chemistry, Nano-chemistry and Computational Chemistry. The courses have been designed considering updated branches of Chemistry so that students graduating from the department can take challenge for the highly competitive job market in all over the world. The purpose of the Department is to provide a platform for teaching, learning and research in this arena of Chemistry that will contribute to industrial development, economic growth and social prosperity in home and abroad.
Officers and Staffs
The administrative section of this Department has Section Officer, Laboratory Technician and Office Attendants. They are serving to run the different activities of the Department smoothly with all staffs under the guidance of the Chairman.
The Department has an office room with internet facility. For conducting practical classes the department has a Chemistry Lab. The lab is well equipped with modern equipments and essential chemicals. The Department has developed a seminar library with essentials books of chemistry which are available for students use. Besides, it has a lot of research journals, magazines and periodicals are also stocked at seminal library. Multimedia projector is available for visual display.
The high skilled and innovative faculties are doing researches in collaboration with national and internationally recognized public universities. Their interests in special fields are illustrated in their biography (vide post).
Though the department is newly born, the academic activities are going on successfully. The department is aimed to let the students be able to gather advanced knowledge in theoretical and practical chemistry which could help them to provide themselves in the national and international job market. We are confident to built up an environment of education and doing international level research which could change the scenario of the growth of our country.
The divine power lies in the understanding of science and the application of technology. Mawlana Bhashani Science and Technology University is aimed to provide its students with the knowledge of proper combination of science and technology to get them prepared for the challenges of the 21st century. The students of MBSTU hold not only the scientific knowledge but also the norm and values to become complete social human beings who would break all the obstacles of the society and lead it to a better one as they are influenced by the vision of the spiritual philosopher and the leader of the leaders - Mawlana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhashani. That is why the students of MBSTU are well prepared to face the challenges of day to day life anywhere.
