Welcome to the Department Chemistry

On behalf of the Department of Chemistry at Gono Bishwabidyalay, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you! We plan to go from strength to strength with your support and the hard work of our students, faculty, and staff. We are trying to strive to build a generation equipped with knowledge, competence, modern and comprehensive education in chemistry.

Definitely, chemistry plays fundamental role in science, engineering, and technology. Plant growth and metabolism, production of inorganic fuels, formation of igneous rocks, the role of ozone in the atmosphere, the degradation of environmental pollutants, the action of drugs, and the establishment of forensic evidence are understood only from the knowledge and perspective of chemistry. Knowledge of chemistry contributes to the advancement of our daily life in easing poverty and eradicating most of the deadly diseases, traveling faster and making our lives more convenient and comfortable. Chemistry plays also a vital role in developing crop-enhancing, safe agricultural chemicals to ensure a constant and viable food supply and life-saving pharmaceuticals, pesticides, plastic, glass, cement, leather, ceramic, paper, and synthetic fibers.

The Department of Chemistry at Gono Bishwabidyalay is a degree awarding department, which was established in 2014. In pursuance of the current education policy of the government, Gono Bishwabidyalay, under the Faculty of Science and Engineering, started running this department, which is presently offering four years degree (honors) course in Chemistry. The Department of Chemistry at Gono Bishwabidyalay is one of the largest and most research-oriented chemistry departments in Bangladesh. This department has been playing a pioneer role in our country to produce competent teachers starting from secondary level to undergraduate and postgraduate levels and preparing chemists.

Chemistry is a great career choice because it is a very broad field that enables you to specialize in one or several areas. You can determine which area you want to work in based on your own knowledge, skills, and interests.
