Chemistry and Biochemistry
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at National Chung Cheng University, formerly the Department of Chemistry, initiated its academic activities with Master’s program in August 1992. The Department launched bachelor’s degree program in 1995, and began to admit overseas students in 2002. Over the years, the Department continues to grow and has become a comprehensive education system in the research fields of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, located within the College of Science, features excellent learning environment and state-of-the-art facilities. The Department not only provides modern teaching labs of general chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry and physical chemistry, but also accommodates cutting-edge research labs that comply with regulations of safety and environmental protection.
The Department currently boasts 17 full-time and 1 adjunct members. Apart from the conventional research fields, i.e. organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry and analytical chemistry, nanomaterials and biochemistry are two major new research areas. All research groups have ongoing research projects in the aforementioned fields participated by graduate students and interns under the guidance of the faculty members. In addition, the Department has established the Center for Nano Bio-detection, which focuses on the research and development of novel biodiagnostics.
The curriculum at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is centered on traditional chemistry, accompanied by biochemistry and material chemistry.
The Department also offers optional programs in biochemistry and material chemistry, which would guide students to acquire specialized skills and knowledge.
Career Opportunities for Graduates
Bachelor of Science in Chemistry is a door-opening degree, which may lead to postgraduate study in chemistry, chemical engineering, biochemistry, molecular biology, biomedicine, pharmacy, food science and environmental science. There are ample career opportunities in industries including, but not limited to, electrical devices, electro optical sensors, chemical engineering, material science, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. Teaching is another obvious option. All in all, graduates of Chemistry and Biochemistry have exceptional career and academic prospects.
