Department of Chemistry at Forefront of Fight against Covid-19 on Campus
Since the inception of the Faculty of Science 34 years ago we have always endeavoured to provide our learners with an excellent foundation in line with the institutional Vision, Mission and Core Values. We remain committed to quality teaching, creation and application of knowledge through pure and applied research and dissemination of new knowledge through scholarly publications in forums that are locally and internationally recognised. Besides equipping graduands with knowledge, skills and attitudes that have enabled them to be here today, our faculty staff have continued to contribute to knowledge-generation through research.
Right from the onset of the novel Covid-19 situation in our country and globally, the Department of Chemistry has continued to provide protection against the virus to the various units in the University by way of availing well packaged sanitiser for use by staff and students. The Department has also enhanced its production of the high quality liquid soap.
During this period, the Faculty has remained focused and innovative in as far as teaching and research is concerned. Our teaching and technical staff have been working tirelessly to ensure that we reach our students for online classes. This enabled us to complete part of the final semester for the students graduating today, and going forward we are determined to ensure that nothing inhibits our generation and delivery of knowledge.
Our members of staff continue to pursue further studies, and so far we have a sizeable number of them on studies locally and abroad. Others have resumed work after successful completion of Ph.D. studies, and we look forward to growing the Faculty through their newly-acquired knowledge and skills.
Dean, Faculty of Science.
