Its vision is to be a leader among research intensive universities of the 21st century, while catalyzing the growth of Abu Dhabi and the UAE's rapidly developing knowledge-based economy.
The College is distinguishing itself as a major contributor towards economic diversification within Abu Dhabi and the region, particularly through its close alignment with growing regional industries in key themes such as Energy, Materials Science, Aerospace, Healthcare, Transportation and Telecommunications. The College of Arts and Sciences is a vibrant community of academic scholars, students and staff who are dedicated to excellence in science education and innovation for the ultimate benefit of society. The College empowers students with a great sense of purposeful academic curiosity and appreciation of the social and environmental context within a rapidly changing world. Our ambition is to become an internationally-recognized centre of research excellence and for research-led teaching.
The Department of Chemistry is an academic unit within the College of Arts and Sciences comprising some 25 faculty members and laboratory staff. The Department offers a BSc. in Chemistry (with tracks in Environmental, Materials and Forensic Chemistry) that was launched in August 2017. The department also teaches chemistry to students majoring in engineering disciplines as well as those pursuing the KU Pre-Medicine Bridge program. There is also a well established MSc in Applied Chemistry program and a PhD program is in development.
