Chemistry is at the heart of many disciplines and is a core science discipline. Chemistry being an incredibly multidisciplinary science is critical for solving society’s most important problems and making significant positive impacts on human health, energy, and the environment.
The Chemistry programs at GCWUS are providing students a grasp of the basic principles of chemistry through a course of study that emphasizes fundamental concepts of chemistry, modern synthetic and analytical techniques, materials science and much more. This theoretical background is further augmented through a carefully designed course of laboratory experiments regarding chemical procedures and techniques that cover basic concepts of experimental techniques which serve as a stepping stone to research in Chemistry. Students are encouraged to participate in research projects under the supervision of highly qualified faculty. These research projects could have potential applications in a variety of fields including biotechnology, chemicals/materials industry, fuel/solar cells development, electronics, photonics, drug delivery, nano medicine and environmental remediation etc.
The Department offers both undergraduate degrees (BS) and graduate degrees (MS and Ph.D). The Department believes in maintaining high standards and follows the guidance of the Higher education commission (HEC), Pakistan in maintaining course offerings that meet their guidelines for success in chemistry, science, and associated professional areas. Any student enrolled in graduate and undergraduate program of department is eligible for higher studies in any other HEC approve university or can apply for job in both government and private sector organizations. This is focal point for those interested in the field of chemistry and offers them opportunities for practical experience and professional contacts.

Mission Statement

Chemistry is an incredibly multidisciplinary science and is critical for solving society’s most important problems and making significant positive impacts on human health, energy, and the environment. In the Chemistry Department at GCWU, we seek to explore and to expand the frontiers of modern chemistry. Our mission is to create and maintain programs of excellence in the areas of research, education and public outreach:

    Our Mission is:

  • To provide a basic and broad foundation in chemistry that stresses scientific reasoning and analytical problem solving with a molecular perspective.
  • To provide students with the skills required to succeed in graduate school, the chemical industry or professional school.
  • To expose the students to a breadth of experimental techniques using modern instrumentation.

Vision Statement

The Department of Chemistry at the Government College Women University, Sialkot is dedicated to maintain a reputation as an outstanding department on the basis of providing the best chemical education possible and stresses research at both the undergraduate and graduate level as a means of keeping the faculty and students working towards their goals in light of the current state-of-the art. Faculty works to maintain accessibility to our students and also work to collaborate with each other and other departments throughout the university to enhance education opportunities and generate successful graduates.

Aims and objectives:

Objectives are intended to be statements that describe the expected accomplishments of graduates during the first several years following graduation from the program.

  1. The student will understand the importance of Elemental composition, how it came to be, and its role in organizing chemical information.
  2. The student will understand the interdisciplinary nature of chemistry and to integrate knowledge of other natural science subjects to deal with variety of chemical problems.
  3. The student will learn the laboratory skills needed to design, safely conduct and interpret chemical research.
  4. The student will acquire a foundation of chemistry of sufficient breadth and depth to enable them to understand and critically interpret the primary chemical literature.
  5. The student will develop the ability to effectively communicate scientific information and research results in written and oral formats.
  6. The student will learn professionalism, including the ability to work in team and apply basic ethical principles.
