Message from the Dean

Welcome! I am pleased to extend my sincere wishes to all the new enrollees. You have made a life-changing decision to become a part of the Institute of Chemistry Ceylon (IChemC). The College of Chemical Sciences, functioning as the educational arm of the Institute, has been nurturing undergraduates for over fifty years now. The Graduateship Programme in Chemistry (GIC) is a qualification that has opened a variety of international and national career prospects for aspiring Chemists. From this year onwards, we introduce the Bachelor of Science Honors (BSc) in Chemical Science. At present, we have many prospective candidates enrolled in this program.

The BSc Honors in Chemical Science is accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education and recognized by the UGC. The GIC is a Professional Degree accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry, UK. Many of our alumni hold doctorates from prestigious academic bodies placed locally and abroad, and their scientific contributions are highly recognized. Likewise, those who join the industrial and corporate sectors are doing equally well. They have given IChemC its due recognition as an Institute that produces quality graduates in Chemistry.

We have pooled together highly competent internal academics, visiting lecturers from state universities, and qualified professionals from government agencies and research institutes to help you achieve your dreams as of now and beyond.

I wish you the best of luck with your studies and encourage you to complete your degree on a high note within the allocated four-year period.

With warmest wishes!

Professor Sujatha Hewage
