Department of Chemistry



About the Department

The Department of Chemistry was initiated in 1996 with the establishment of Faculty of Education at the Alemaya University. It started to run training with B.Ed degree in chemistry the same year. In the year 2004 the Department launched a unique graduate program leading to M.Ed degree in chemistry with the intention of playing a role towards fulfilling the Country’s needs for high-level qualified chemistry educators. This tradition of offering postgraduate training at the Department helps as a stepping stone to embark on offering a taught MSc course in Chemistry. Thus, in 2007/2008 the department undertook the initiative to launch a new M.Sc. program in chemistry. In addition, in 2008 the department launched B.Sc in Applied Chemistry
and after one year the department opened a new B.Sc in Chemistry.
