The Department of Chemistry, established in 1962, has since emerged as one of the leading science Departments of the University of Jammu. Set up with a meager strength of faculty members, the Department now has seven Professors, one Associate Professor and two Assistant Professors, besides non-teaching staff. All the faculty members have excelled in their respective specialization in teaching as well as in research.

The students during their stay in the department are given rigorous training to meet the growing challenges in various sectors. Many of them are serving in industry, atomic energy establishments, as faculty members in Universities and Colleges and some have even excelled in administrative services. Based upon academic achievements of faculty members both nationally and internationally, the Department of Science and Technology has adjudged the Department for funding under FIST (level-1) Programme & PURSE Programme to pursue research in the thrust areas. The Department has also been identified by the University Grants Commission for SAP Programme. Along with academic achievements, the department is aiming to strengthen instrumentation programme and other facilities.
