Department of Chemistry

Chemistry – is the study of matter and reactions that matter undergoes. Lifesaving oxygen to medicine, food to cloth, computer to space shuttle, whatever we see involve chemistry. We are in touch with the phenomenon of chemistry in our day-to-day life, but most of us do not have basic knowledge of it. Engineers manipulate systems to achieve better performance and to do so they must be familiar with the chemistry associated with the systems under consideration. Circular economy involves in recycling wastes to convert in usable forms. Almost all business somehow runs with chemistry. If you know some chemistry, you can make educated choices about everyday products that you use. That is why, Department of Chemistry at American International University– Bangladesh (AIUB) is a potential segment of natural science which conducts courses in chemistry, basic in natural science etc., the basic requirement of many undergrad degree programs.

Students hoping to pursue careers as electrical and electronic engineers, computer science engineers, chemical engineers, and environmental scientists are often required to take an introductory general chemistry course. Students may have ambition to obtain BA or BBA degree, they need to fulfill a prerequisite of basics in natural science- a course related to day-to-day life and well suited to the goals. The department comprises of highly competent faculty members all with PhD, experienced in post-doctoral research and dynamic in co-curricular activities like seminars, symposiums, lab clinics, environmental and climate change issues, emerging nanotechnology etc. Each faculty is actively engaged in research and has published more than 60 research papers in reputed peer reviewed journals. Our well-equipped chemistry laboratories and skilled lab staffs will make the learning process more enjoyable and inspiring for the students. Environmental chemistry, industrial chemistry, nano chemistry will be offered from the department of chemistry in future.
