Our Vision

The Vision of the Department of Chemistry is to generate and disseminate Chemistry education among its pupils such that at individual level, a Chemistry graduate should be inspired with a sense of curiosity and wonder about the fundamental nature of the world around the student,  be empowered with the ability to make decisions about their own lives and critically evaluate scientific and technological developments that impact society and lastly  be equipped with the knowledge and skills to pursue further study and rewarding careers in the chemical sciences and a wide range of related fields.

Our Mission

1: To represent a clear framework or narrative that gives a coherent ‘big picture’ of chemistry as a subject, explains why it matters, and shows how different areas of content are connected.

2: To prepare competitive and professional graduates within an innovative and intellectually stimulating environment, support other academic programs at Adamas University by offering quality chemistry learning experiences, conduct basic and applied research of national and international impact.

3: To advance knowledge platform that supports an invent-and-design culture in graduate and undergraduate chemistry education and that empowers students to address and solve challenges of global significance.

4: To reach out to our future thought leaders—students of all backgrounds from pre-college to doctoral candidates—to share the power of chemistry to create new knowledge directed at the major unmet needs of our time.
