Welcome to the Department of Chemistry. It is one of the pioneer Department at Khulna University of Engineering and Technology (KUET). It is my pleasure to introduce this Department, which is now the only Department in Khulna region that offering postgraduate degrees (Ph.D, M.Phil and M.Sc) in Chemistry.
Chemistry is often called the central science because it deals with the fundamental building blocks of life and non living materials that we meet every day. Chemists develop new materials for sustainable energy, new medicines for the treatment of disease, designing products and processes that minimize the use and generation of hazardous substances and better ways of understanding mechanisms of reactions, etc. Chemistry is a very collaborative undertaking and as a student in the Chemistry program in KUET, you will learn to think critically with other scientists from different fields. You will create new molecules and understand the theory behind doing so. Our graduates find greater careers in various fields from energy to medicine to teaching and learning, and beyond. Chemists continue to be in demand by the industries, laboratories and educational institutions. We are proud to say that many of our graduates holding noteworthy positions in various organizations.
Currently the Department has 10 full time academic staffs and 7 support staffs. Our faculty members conduct high-profile research in a variety of areas including analytical, environmental, electrochemical, sensor, biosensor, medicinal, bio-inorganic, bio-physical, nano-materials, solutions, food, surface, organic and polymer chemistry. Researchers in our department are involved in prominent interdisciplinary projects. Publications of our research appear in highly ranked journals that are highly cited by the international community.
The Department has multiple instrumentation facilities that serve the need of our research groups: electro-analytical/ sensor instrumentation (Potentiostats/Galvanostats), UV-visible-NIR spectrophotometers, High accuracy Digital thermostats, Modern rotary-evaporator, Vacuum oven, Digital melting point apparatus etc. and a teaching laboratory for computational chemistry and molecular modeling.
Please feel free to visit our webpage for the details on the Departmental activities, academic programs, faculties and their research. If you require any further information’s, please feel free to contact us.
