Department of Chemistry, KMITL aims to produce undergraduate and postgraduate students having knowledge in Chemistry and Applied Chemistry. The study programs are specially designed for students who like Chemistry and interested in Applied Chemistry. The program has been running since 1982. The Bachelor’s degree program is a 4 year course. The core subjects for years 1-2 are the fundamentals of chemistry and related scientific subjects which are the basic of today’s technology. In years 3 and 4 of B.Sc. (Industrial Chemistry), students may choose the major subject of their interest. To foster class learning and research skill, the Department also provides a number of laboratories specializing in many areas of research. The fourth year students are required to carry out their special projects.

Master’s degree program contains both 2 year- research based course and taught course. Doctoral’s degree program contains both 3 year-research based course and taught course.
