Chemistry is concerned with the observation of substances at the molecular, atomic, and electronic levels in search of scientific truths. It is considered the central discipline within natural sciences due to the extensive range of substances it covers. At the Department of Chemistry, a structured set of lectures and experiments provides its students with the rigorous education necessary for them to become chemists who are adept at creating, analyzing, and utilizing substances.
The Department of Chemistry's activities center on the search for scientific truths. Its aims are to create new substances and build new principles and laws. The derived principles, together with the introduction of new technologies, have been activating and improving the Institute's chemistry discipline. Students who join the department will gain the opportunity to participate in this quest for truths. To help prepare them, the fundamentals of the discipline that are necessary in seeking answers to scientific questions are taught in the second and third years of undergraduate study.
Experiments are essential to the process of answering scientific questions and uncovering truths. New principles and substances are built on experimental findings. At the Department of Chemistry, problem-solving courses run parallel with laboratory courses, enabling students to acquire methodologies used in the discipline effectively. This feature of the department's curriculum is not only beneficial to experiment lovers, but also to students with a preference for theory and debate. The well-balanced education is sure to provide all students with rewarding experiences.
The Department of Chemistry is home to laboratories that handle a diversity of substances. When students advance to their fourth year, they get to join these laboratories to conduct their own research at the cutting edge of science. They will conduct experiments and analyze data repeatedly in search of new principles and substances. The universality of these principles and the usefulness of these substances are then determined through discussion with faculty members. Students may then disseminate their findings to the world through scientific journals and domestic and international conferences.
Most of the students who complete their bachelor's degree program at the Department of Chemistry advance to graduate studies. Conducting cutting-edge research at the graduate level gives students the training necessary to become researchers working in a variety of fields. The career paths open to these students are far and wide. Some students enjoy a fruitful career in universities and research institutes while others find success in industries including chemical, pharmaceutical, energy, automotive, electronics, information industries, and so on. To join our department is to take the first step into the world of science to become chemists who are capable of tackling the various global challenges of today in areas such as food, energy, and the environment.
