Department of Chemistry

Chemistry Department is one of the departments in the College of Natural and Computational Science of MWU. Since its establishment, 1999 E.C/2008 G.C, department of Chemistry offers B.Sc. degree courses in the regular and summer-in-service programs. Recently, the department has also launched post graduate program based on the demand of the Ministry of Education and the Society to produce skilled man powers who can meet the requirements of the country in general and the society in particular.

Chemistry is a fundamental field of study that plays a vital role in the development of science, technology, business and other related sciences. It strongly influences the socio-economic development of a society and civilization. Thus, it is very important that students be equipped with strong chemical knowledge and skills which enable them to be productive in areas where such knowledge and skills are required. Various sectors like; Research centers, Universities, Colleges, Preparatory schools, Industries and the like; where chemical knowledge and skills are required, demand such highly trained man powers. 

Nowadays, the Ethiopian government is emphasizing on the expansion and strengthening of higher education in both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. As a result of this, many universities were established and also many preparatory schools and factories have been established in the past few years. Hence, it is to meet this increasing demand for skilled man power that the department has put in its strategic plan to launch programs of different modalities at undergraduate and post graduate scales.

Currently, the department has 4 Ethiopian PhD holders in Analytical and Organic Chemistry and one PhD candidate in Physical chemistry. One Ethiopian staff member with M.Sc. Degree in Inorganic Chemistry had the rank of Assistant professor. Moreover, there are 9 staff members having M.Sc. degrees and 1 staff member on study leave for M.Sc. degree. This piece of information reveals that the improvement of staff profile and their capacity to run the programs. Moreover, the department is striving to equip laboratories with necessary materials to provide genuine services for researchers and undergraduate as well as postgraduate students.

Main duties of the department

  • Training and equipping Undergraduate and post graduate students with the necessary knowledge, attitude and skills
  • Solving problems of the society through integrated research based activities
  • Participating in Community services

Message from the Department Head

For education to be functional and life simplifier the education system should lay on the strong education system that creates well trained man power that can accurately suggest a solution for the problem of the society. This in turn lays on the strong foundation of science, engineering, and mathematics that is used as a bridge to transform the people’s life from the level of poverty to the level of prosperity. In particular, mathematics is the core for contemporary civilization. Its contribution is abundant to segregate the world from the age of darkness to age of lightest and information era. It is also helped scientists being as a mirror to see and capture the distant that was perceived earlier as untouched, and unreached. Besides, as water is important for life to continue, mathematics is important for the progress of the world in science and in technology to continue. In fact mathematics helps to create well equipped 21st century generation that can confront and overcome different challenges in life. It helps in the dynamic world to develop the courage to improve the existing science and technology discoveries. 

In addition, mathematics simultaneously teaches us union and working together. Different numbers positive, negative, and zero united to build a complex number system.  From this one can learn that human beings in different situations can unit and work together being as one complex society. Indeed, as mathematics is a common course starting from the early stage at nursery school, it creates opportunities so that different individuals to come to a table to discuss on the concepts of mathematics, and then other social issues. In this case mathematics also helps to create friendship.

So, it is pleasurable to come to the Mathematics Department Website at Madda Walabu University that communicates valuable information regarding the overall activities within the Department.  The Department of Mathematics is now efficiently functioning having 26 instructors: one Associate Professor, three Assistant Professor (Ph.D), nine Assistant professor (MSc) twelve lecturers and one graduate assistant who is attending 2nd degree education at present. In deeded, currently there are two PhD candidates.

The goal of mathematics department is to train qualified, adaptable, motivated, and responsible mathematicians who will contribute to the scientific and technological development of Ethiopia. We achieve this goal through outreach and diverse course offerings, small class size, dedicated teachers and working collaboratively as team being supported by reform tools. Our curriculum combines high-quality scientific training with a strong liberal arts component. The small size of our department allows our department to work with students one-on-one to meet their individual needs and interests, which is often difficult to find at larger institutions. Students are encouraged to get involved in research within the department as early as possible.
