At present, the department of chemistry offers courses leading to M.Sc, M. Phil. and Ph.D degrees. M.Sc degree program is two years course work in chemistry. This is to provide training in the four special mainstream areas i.e. Physical, Inorganic, Organic and Analytical Chemistry. This combination of courses aims to provide familiarity with general and applied fields of chemistry.
“To develop the human resources with the capability to comprehend theoretical and applied aspects of different branches of chemistry by providing them conducive environment of teaching and learning, and expand their cognitive frontiers by introducing internationally recognizable research program”
Latest courses are offered in accordance with the criterion set by HEC. The students graduating from this university have vast field of opportunities opened to those who are keen to carry on with their academic results. Students are provided opportunities to use equipment for laboratory experiments. The courses are distributed over four semesters. In first two semesters, Physical, Inorganic, Organic and Analytical Chemistry courses are offered. In addition to the above courses a compulsory Mathematics course is also offered, which is specially designed to enhance the mathematical background of the students. First two semesters consist of 18 credit hours each while third and fourth consist of 16 credits hours each. For M. Sc third and fourth semesters, the students will have to opt for one of the following fields of specializations: Physical, Inorganic, Organic and Analytical. The students will have to take the research project (optional) carrying 3 credits hours in 4th semester in the field of their specialization. Moreover, the department is potentially offering course work and research in the area of currently emerging field of Nanomaterials Science.

The National Digital Library programme was launched by Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC) in February 2004 with the purpose to increase the access to scientific literature in Pakistan. The HEC secured inclusion in the Programme for Enhancement of Research Information (PERI) of the International Network for Scientific Publications (INASP). .
Microsoft has taken initiative of providing free Microsoft software for personal use as part of Academic Alliance via HEC.
To acquire higher education is the need of time. The momentous uprising of department provided us a glorious opportunity by launching M.Phil program which is expanding our horizon of the latest knowledge. I feel lucky enough to be M.Phil scholar of Mirpur University of Science and Technology and acknowledge whole heartedly the contribution of my teachers for exploring new dimensions in the field of chemistry.
