Welcome to the Chemistry Department at the Islamic University of Gaza, Hello (Alslamo Alekom) and thank you for visiting our website!

I am pleased to take advantage of this unique opportunity to briefly introduce the chemistry department of the Islamic University to all of you in order to help us in dissemination our vision and achieve our mission.      

The chemistry department was founded in 1981 as a response to the strong demand to educate the science of chemistry for the Palestinian students notably in Gaza strip and it is the first chemistry department to be established in Gaza strip.

Our department is committed to providing an educational environment that allows the student to acquire essential knowledge and skills for future careers in research, education and industry, so that and since its foundation; the department always concerned and succeeded to attract and appointed  highly qualified members of staff in all of chemistry branches. The department is committed to providing a course of study for undergraduates in chemistry which combines developed curriculum and laborites. Our laboratories are now under developing as they all have been demolished during the war on Gaza. Although of all the obstacles and the crises, we are looking forward to establish high quality and state-of-the-art laboratories.

We offer two programs in chemistry, the first for the undergraduate degrees in Chemistry (Chemistry and Biochemistry) and the second is a graduate (M.S.) degrees. Currently we have 13 master students conducting their research within the department laboratories as well as with strong cooperation with national and international Universities.

I hope that this website contains the information you are looking for. However, if you do have any further questions about our undergraduate and graduate programs, please do not hesitate to contact me.
