The department of Chemistry was established as a main academic department in the Collage of Science / Al-Nahrain University in the year 1988. The department grants a B.Sc.certificate in Chemistry Science after the completion of (143) study unit according to the general University plan, where the first three academic years depend on the vocabularies of curricula's within the requirements and dependable references in various worldwide Universities, as for the last phase it depends on teaching special advanced subjects and research project to ensure the graduation of Chemists in an advanced level qualified for work and creation in institutes hat have the same specialization. The department also includes three types of laboratories which are educational, researchable and service laboratories (Computer lab ,spectroscopy lab and specialized lab).

As for the postgraduate studies it’s accompanied by the undergraduate study pursued the same principle to emphasize the curricula's and the plans with an applicative and advanced features consisting: (Chemistry Analysis, Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and Bio-Chemistry). The department contain a well selection of Collage members in various Chemistry specialization with an amount of (21) lecturers that carry the Ph.D. certificate and (37) assistant lecturers that carry the M.Sc. certificate (where part of them took the path through the ministry of high education and scientific research to gain the Ph.D. degree from different countries such as America, United Kingdom and Australia) as well as technicians and administrative. The department contains (7) laboratories for students and more than (20) research laboratories.  

Scientific areas where graduators can work:

  1. Laboratories in the Ministry of Health and in governmental and private hospitals.
