I am delighted to welcome you to the Department of Chemistry at Alfaisal University. Chemistry is the central science that connects physical sciences, life sciences, and applied sciences. We aspire to become a leading center for the creation and dissemination of knowledge in the chemical and biochemical sciences and their multifaceted practical applications. We offer large selections of courses to undergraduate & graduate students including those in the College of Science, College of Engineering, College of Medicine, and College of Business. Our goal is to provide our students with the right atmosphere, educational tools, and training to learn and achieve their goals. The students themselves, have indicated that the Chemistry Department is a warm, welcoming, and student-centered department.
Faculty members in the department are engaged in multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research in diverse range of fields including nanomaterials for energy applications, polymer chemistry, nanotechnology, biosensors, bioorganic chemistry, biomarker discovery, forensic chemistry, and food toxicology. The department takes pride in engaging undergraduate students in research and providing them the opportunity to present their work in local, national, and international events and conferences.
The Department of Chemistry contributes greatly to the Life Science program and offers a Master of Science program in Nanoscience & Nanotechnology that was launched in Fall 2015. The Nanoscience & Nanotechnology program is materials-oriented with emphasis in materials chemistry, microelectronics, photonics, and their biomedical and energy applications. Moreover, the department is developing new programs that will be launched in the near future including a Bachelor of Science in Forensic & Analytical Sciences and a Master of Science in Forensic Science.
