The Chemistry Department provides the student an excellent environment for scientific inquiry and discourse. The faculty offers expertise in the most relevant fields of chemistry, having been trained in well-established scientific institutions around the world. They are actively engaged in research and extension work funded by the university, the private sector, and the government.
Even with our strong research thrust, the Department has remained teaching oriented. Our faculty to student ratio (1:10) ensures that we are able to address each student’s learning needs. Furthermore, individualized laboratory set-ups and hands-on experience with modern instruments provide the students with the best training possible.
The Department is presently a designated CHED Center of Excellence in Chemistry in the Philippines.
We believe that science and technology are an integral part of the socio-economic development of any country.
To contribute to national development in the Philippines, the Department aims to train and nurture scientists and technologists who will be committed to the theory and application of chemistry, and engage in fundamental and applied research in chemistry that will fuel the development of competitive, local technology.
