Department of Chemistry

About the Department

The department of chemistry was established in 1961, which was the same year that Higher Teachers Training Institute was founded.

The first batch graduated from the department in 1965 with a diploma. When the institute affiliated to the University of Khartoum in 1974, it became known as the department of chemistry, and then it awarded a bachelor’s degree. It aims to prepare students academically and educationally to work in general schools. The department has several laboratories for teaching different branches of chemistry, namely organic chemistry lab, inorganic lab, analytical chemistry lab and physical chemistry lab as well as the research laboratory for graduate students (Master& PhD).

Statement of Head Department

There is no doubt that the mission of education is noble and supreme. In our department, it is undertaken by distinguished teachers whom I am very pleased to express my gratitude and respect to all of them. My thanks are also due to the technicians and workers in the department for the role they play to achieve the objectives of the department. To master the work and to keep updated to the scientific and technological development, the department’s webpage has been created to set the department towards internationalization.
