Prof. Dr. Shameem Ara Begum
Head of the Department
Welcome to the Chemistry Department of SUST. Chemistry is frequently termed as the science of origin because it deals with the initiation of life, food, energy and the inanimate materials we experience everyday. The chemists develop new materials for sustainable energy, new medicine for the treatment of disease, better ways of understanding reaction mechanism and more accurate approaches to control pollutants, and so on. Chemistry is versatile subject and as a student in the Chemistry Program, you will learn to think critically with other scientists from all fields. You will build new materials and understand the theory behind the process. Our graduates find great careers in widely varying fields from energy to medicine to teaching and learning and both in home and in abroad. This department was the one of the four disciplines while SUST launched its academic programs in 1991. We remember Prof. Dr. M. Khalilur Rahman who was the founder head of this department. Following his prodigy, now we reached to a top level among all the chemistry departments In Bangladesh. Welcome to a world of fundamental building blocks.
