The Chemistry Department was established in 1974, coinciding with the foundation of the university. The department comprises five main disciplines: Analytical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physical Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry. Within our department, there are 15 Professors, 5 Associate Professors, 3 Research Assistants with PhDs, 1 Assistant Professor, 1 Research Assistant, and 1 Instructor. The department actively participates in Erasmus, Mevlana, and Farabi exchange programs.

What is Chemistry?

Chemistry is a science that investigates the structure, properties, and changes of matter. Chemistry lies at the heart of our way of life. A fundamental understanding of chemistry is essential for students in Physics, Biology, Ecology, Geology, and numerous other fields.

Who is a Chemist?

A chemist is a technical professional who studies, defines, produces, alters, and examines matter at both microscopic and macroscopic levels. They work in public, private, and service sectors, as well as in various industrial settings, conducting research and quality control on raw materials and products. Chemists are individuals who have completed a 4-year university education, earning a diploma in their field.


Our mission is to educate individuals who meet the requirements specified in the Education and Training Regulations and are capable of conducting national and international research in one of the fields of Analytical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physical Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry. We aim to produce chemists who can effectively apply their knowledge and skills to address challenges, thus contributing to the transformation of science and technology for the benefit of society. We strive to produce professionals who can add value in every field they work, adapt to evolving technologies, and convert scientific advancements into production, while providing education at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels that meets international standards.


The Chemistry Department aims to adopt a research and technology-oriented approach that supports work aligned with societal needs. We aspire to educate chemists who can carry out advanced and applied research under modern conditions, solve scientific and technological problems independently, and possess the ability to comprehend the composition, structure, properties, and changes of natural and synthetic materials. Our department's fundamental courses provide students with a broad perspective. Through projects, we aim to develop new knowledge, technology, and products, contributing to both national and global development, while continuously updating our education and training programs to meet contemporary requirements.

Undergraduate Program

The aim of the Chemistry Undergraduate Program is to educate students to be competent in both industrial and academic environments in the field of chemistry. The program comprises a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 6 years of education and training. In the first year of the undergraduate program, alongside fundamental chemistry courses, basic physical and mathematical science courses are also taught. In the subsequent years, specialized courses such as Analytical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, and Biochemistry are offered, along with various elective courses.

Master's and Doctoral Programs

The objective of the Master's Program is to provide researchers with an environment conducive to making original contributions to Chemistry and related disciplines, fostering success in scientific research. The Doctoral Program aims to equip students with the ability to conduct independent research, analyze scientific phenomena in-depth, interpret findings, and determine the necessary steps to achieve synthesis. Both programs are available within our department.

Physical Facilities

Within our department, there is a seminar room, four student laboratories, eight modern and well-equipped research laboratories dedicated to various fields of research, and equipped classrooms shared with other departments.

Examinations and Assessment

Attendance is mandatory for courses, with a minimum requirement of 70%. Students meeting the attendance requirement are eligible to take the end-of-semester exam. Students are subject to at least one midterm exam and an end-of-semester exam for each course. The contribution of the midterm exam to the final grade is 40%, while the end-of-semester exam contributes 60%. In the case of practical courses (laboratory), the midterm exam contributes 60% and the end-of-semester exam contributes 40%. These exams are evaluated on a scale of 100 points.

Qualification Requirements

In order to obtain a bachelor's degree in Chemistry, students must successfully complete courses totaling at least 240 ECTS credits and achieve an average score of at least 60 from these courses.

Graduation and Employment Opportunities

Graduates from our department receive their diplomas as "Graduates of the Chemistry Department." Our graduates have the opportunity to work as chemists in various industries such as petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, paints, plastics, glass, cosmetics, iron-steel, automotive, food, textiles, ceramics, cement, leather, detergents-soap, minerals, and similar establishments. They may also find employment in Environmental Analysis Laboratories, Biochemistry laboratories, Ministry of Health, Public Health Laboratories, hospitals, Ministry of Agriculture, Environment and Urbanization, Ministry of Forestry and Water Affairs, and similar institutions. Furthermore, graduates can pursue careers as academicians in institutes and faculties. Those with pedagogical qualifications also have the chance to work as teachers in both private and public sectors.
