Introduction and Overview

Civilization started with the invention of fire or  in other words it started with the knowledge of chemistry and later its contribution in providing energy, food, shelter, clothing, medicine, engineering materials, information technology gadgets and other necessities of life evidence that human being progress goes hand in hand with the progress of chemistry. Thus, chemistry was one of the programs offered at KFUEIT in 2016  for  quality  education  and  specialization in its different core branches such as organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical and applied chemistry. With highly qualified and internationally engaged faculty, well- equipped laboratories and resource rich library facilities the department of chemistry is striving to prepare students to take part into national and international challenging research problems and internships for the fine tuning of their intellectual capabilities and technical skills.

Vision & Mission

The department of chemistry at KFUEIT dreams to accomplish high distinction in teaching and research, to produce chemistry experts of international level proficiencies and to build up a world class center of excellence in teaching and research within the industrial triangle of southern Punjab.

Scope and Associated Career

  • The common purpose is to achieve the highest possible standards of scholarship, teaching and research in chemistry and allied subjects.

  • The program for majors is designed to enable students to  develop  in-depth  understanding of chemical principles; a  working  knowledge of the properties of chemicals; a familiarity with the use  of  the  chemistry  literature;  skills in basic laboratory methods, including modern instrumentation; the ability to observe, record, interpret critically, and communicate experimental results; and a facility in analytical and logical problem solving.

  • To impart a sound knowledge of chemistry to students and to help them use this knowledge creatively and analytically.

  • To develop and improve practical, written and oral communication, information retrieval, computer and problem-solving skills.

  • To encourage the students to become effective and independent learners.

  • To develop in students’ team work abilities to acquire respect for human values.

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

  • Specializations are being offered in Organic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and Applied Chemistry

  • The Course Scheme for first 6 semesters is common and the specialization is offered  in 7th and 8th semester of each Discipline (7th and 8th semesters will be different for each specializations)

  • Admission Criteria for admission in BS Chemistry (04 years)

  • Candidate should have at least 50% marks in Intermediate/equivalent with chemistry from any accredited institution. There will be 2% quota for the students having DAE (03 years) in the relevant field.

  • Admission Criteria for admission in MSc Chemistry (02 years)

  • Candidate should have at least 45% marks in Bachelor degree with Chemistry or an equivalent degree from any recognized University.

MS Chemistry

In MS Chemistry program, students are engaged mainly in research, the  most  stimulating  part of chemistry: the synthesis of new compounds, discovery of new reactions, elucidation of reaction mechanisms, uncovering of new principles, understanding naturally occurring  substances,  or working out theories of chemical bonding or reactivity. The program requires students to take a broad spectrum of courses, and develop applications in diverse applied areas. The course has widespread importance in the area of education and adjacent to it.

Admission Criteria for admission in MS Chemistry (02 years)
