As a basic science, chemistry is an area of study which defines natural phenomenon based on the basic principles and theories of science discovered and established over long periods of time. In addition, being closely linked to various specialties, such as physical chemistry, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, and analytical chemistry, the major of Chemistry is a field of study requiring knowledge and understanding of all specialties and related themes. In consideration of such needs, the Department of Chemistry actively studies and researches all areas closely related to chemistry, such as physical chemistry, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, biochemistry, and high polymer chemistry. Moreover, in third and fourth year, many of our students perform research projects in their supervisor's laboratory and focus on developing professional research ability. Through our graduate program, students conduct their research in laboratory to become a competent expert in chemistry with creativity required by the high-tech society today. At the same time, as part of efforts to improve our curriculum to better cultivate leaders who will lead the chemistry industry of our country, the Department has strived to strengthen practical education, such as visiting programs to companies and internships while strengthening international exchange to improve the international competitiveness of students. Furthermore, Incheon Science Elite Program, founded in 1998 by 3 departments of the college of natural science including the department, is considered as the best institute of science education in Korea. Incheon Science Elite Program plays an important role in the education for elementary and middle school students of Incheon and contributes to the enhancement of the status of INU within local community.
As to respond to the promotion of global informatization and knowledge information industry driven by the city of Incheon around Songdo free economic zone, we will be leading the development of local community and contributing to the advancement of humanity through the fostering of professionals with international competitiveness and creative power fit for knowledge-based society.
