2 Department of Chemistry Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology

3 Message Chemistry is a very exciting branch of science. Basically it is about knowing and investigating the structure and reactions of substances of matter. It is a central science bridging many aspects of other sciences, physical and biological, opening a door to many technological developments. The Department of Chemistry disseminates knowledge of Chemistry and Chemical Technology to the undergraduate students of all engineering disciplines and as well as offers post-graduate degree, like M. Phil. The department currently has 10 postgraduate students. Its faculty strength consists of 8 academic members who lead high-profile research in a variety of areas, including organic, applied, analytical, environmental, and physical chemistry. The department has good instrumentation facilities that serve the needs of undergraduate teaching and postgraduate research groups, such as, Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectrophotometer, UV-VIS Spectrophotometer, Magnetic Susceptibility Balance, Sophisticated Electronic Balance, Rotary Evaporator,, Ultracentrifuge Machine, Compact Chiller, Muffle Furnace, Melting point apparatus etc. Prof. Dr. Ranajit Kumar Sutradhar Head, Department of Chemistry

4 Introduction 1. Chemistry is one of the core-subjects of Science and Technology. 2. The Department of Chemistry takes pride in its teaching excellence and advanced research facilities. 3. Since 1968, the establishment year of this Institution, the Department of Chemistry has been fulfilling its commitment providing knowledge of Chemistry and Chemical Technology to the undergraduate students of all Engineering Disciplines. 4. The Department has started the postgraduation course offering M.Phil degree. 5. Today with highly qualified academic staffs and with sufficient lab facilities, the department strives for academic excellence through creative learning and diverse research in Chemistry and related fields.

5 Academic Programs Undergraduate Department of Chemistry conducts all the chemistry related courses offered by different engineering disciplines. Postgraduate Department of Chemistry offers M.Phil degree. Currently 10 students are enrolled.
