The Department of Chemistry and Chemical Technology was established at the start of the academic year 2005/2006, coinciding with the inception of Tafila Technical University. This was to keep pace with the significant and tremendous technological progress our world is witnessing today. This progress requires educating, training, and preparing individuals so that they can fulfill our collective aspirations for comprehensive development in all fields.

With the launch of the department, specializations in Chemistry and Chemical Technology were introduced, which are unique to Tafila Technical University. These specializations aim to supply governmental and private national institutions with qualified personnel to work as researchers, teachers, and technicians. They also prepare them for advanced studies programs.

The Department of Chemistry and Chemical Technology aims to provide high-quality educational and research programs, striving to establish and enhance the students’ scientific and experimental knowledge. This is in addition to using the best educational methods in teaching and encouraging students to reach a high level of knowledge.

The department offers a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and Chemical Technology and a Master’s degree (research track) in Chemical Technology. The department includes 20 faculty members, assisted by nine lab supervisors and technicians. Currently, the department is working to increase its teaching staff to enhance the educational process and scientific research, and to keep up with the increasing number of students who are enrolling each year. The department has five laboratories, each accommodating up to 20 students. These are: Organic Chemistry Lab, Inorganic Chemistry Lab, Instrumental analysis Lab, Physical Chemistry Lab, and Analytical Chemistry Lab.

The department continues to feed the local and Arab market with graduates who have proven their success and excellence in various chemical fields such as industry, chemical analysis, pharmaceutical companies, laboratory equipment, chemical materials, university teaching, and secondary education.

By God’s will, the department seeks to elevate the educational process according to the latest applied systems. This aligns with the mission and vision of the university, which always emphasizes implementing global quality standards for all its programs across various specializations. It also continues to support scientific research and encourages researchers with the aim of building effective joint cooperation with universities and research centers at both local and global levels, enabling the department to better achieve its mission and objectives.
