Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the National
Chung Cheng University (DC&BC-CCU)
1992 in the college of science. The Department is a
comprehensive department granting bachelor's, master's, and
Ph.D. degrees. We are strongly committed to excellence in
education and research in the fundamental chemical sciences,
such as organic, bio, inorganic, analytical, physical
as well as exploring the connections between chemistry and
the other natural sciences. To achieve this goal we have
implemented two certificate programs
in the biochemistry and material chemistry.
Department currently has currently has 18 full-time
faculty members and
4 staff members, over 140 graduate students and 200
Every faculty member in the Department conducts active
chemistry-related research covering a broad range of topics
at the forefront of modern chemistry.
Our brand-new department building was completed in the
summer of 2007 to accommodate state-of-the-art laboratories,
modern classrooms and ample space for meeting and
discussion. The Department also
provides a collection of cutting-edge shared equipments to
help students advance their ideas and understanding of
The Department has a long-standing tradition of
in chemical research. Members from the Department are
actively engaged in joint research programs with scientists
in CCU campus and from other institutes and organizations.
Because the multidisciplinary programs are organized around
important new chemical areas, they ferment new ideas and
lead naturally to cooperative or leveraged research efforts.
Members of the Department have successfully obtained funding
to establish the
Center for Nano Bio-Detection, which focuses on
nano-biosensing technology, and the Instrument Center, which
serves as the core facility of the University.
For those of
you who are interested in basic chemistry, or are passionate
for scientific discovery, or have an appreciation for the
unconventional and frontier research programs, you are most
welcome to join us, or at least pay us a visit. We are
located in a beautiful campus covered with Judas trees on an
eastern hill of Min-Hsiung, Chia-Yi.
