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


To be internationally recognized as the Department of Chemistry, aligned with the vision of KFUEIT, that best exemplifies the dual commitment to outstanding research and student education


Mission

Provide a high-quality education in Chemical Sciences at the undergraduate and graduate levels that prepares graduates for productive careers in relevant fields, and for life as educated, effective citizens and leaders. Discover and disseminate new knowledge in science and engineering through creative activity in research and scholarship. Provide service to the state, nation, and world by advancing the profession of Chemistry and its relent fields


Departmental Role in The Broader University Mission

The Chemistry Department plays a pivotal role in the Punjab province and the provinces in its vicinity. Southern Punjab where Rahim Yar Khan is located, is a major city and industrial hub of the region, while borders areas of Baluchistan and Sindh are deprived in terms of facilities of higher education in science and technology. University mission is to create, share, and apply knowledge to make Pakistan and the world a better place. Specifically, this is achieved through the dual emphases on (1) innovative faculty research and graduate education, as well as on (2) a best in class undergraduate program.
