Introduction

The Chemistry Department was established in 2012, at the Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University which strives to provide an excellent education in chemistry within a liberal arts tradition for a variety of learners. The Chemistry Department is a vital, expanding hub of scientific inquiry with deep historic roots a ready grasp on the future. We design our program to help students understand that chemistry is a way of thinking about how matter is constructed, organized, and functions and offers the specialization in the field of Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry and Industrial Chemistry. We build the chemical foundation in a context that helps students become scientifically responsible citizens, with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that will allow them to be successful in scientific or non-scientific professions.

MISSION STATMENT

To produce researchers in chemistry with knowledge, skills and judicious applications to face the global challenges of 21st century/millennium for humanity.

VISION

Our vision for the Department of Chemistry is that we will be recognized as one of the top comprehensive chemistry programs in the country, providing educational opportunities to a broad range of undergraduate and graduate students while conducting research and scholarship that has a true impact on the profession and society. Reputational rankings (As prescribed by HEC) are based primarily on the perceived quality of the faculty in combination with more objectives measures of research productivity (e.g., number of PhD graduates, number of publications, research projects). Thus, the two primary goals in the coming 5 year Strategic Plan are to increase the size and strength of our faculty and to increase the quality and number of students in our graduate program.

OBJECTIVE

1) To develop rational development and learning in and through chemistry;

2) To impart a sound knowledge of chemistry to students and to help them to use this knowledge creatively and analytically;

3) Apply the knowledge of chemistry in their social life, economical, professional, health judiciary agricultural industrial and allied scenario Plan and manage academics issues efficiently.

4) To encourage students to become effective independent learners.

5) To develop the analytical and critical thinking skills needed to acquire, analyze and interpret data.

6) To develop in students the ability to work in groups so as to acquire respect for human values;

7) To encourage students to broaden their knowledge, to develop their own capabilities and self-confidence, to respect learning and to participate in continuing education.
