Facilities

Students who are enrolled in the bachelor's program major specialization in chemistry and subspecialty in education should successfully complete compulsory and elective courses in the field of chemistry, which aim to provide the student with theoretical and practical training on the necessary equipment needed in his field of work after graduation. These courses cover experiments in analytical, organic, inorganic and physical chemistry.
This is in addition to the necessary laboratories in the field of teaching methods provided by the Faculty of Education, including modern computer labs that allow students to use them to prepare their research and the tasks required from them in various courses, as well as the provision of smart boards which are employed in lectures, and private halls of educational facilities prepared by students of various programs in the college.
A - Facilities and laboratories available in the Department of Chemistry:

  1. General chemistry labs: These are used to train the students on accurate weighing, performing basic chemical methods such as filtration, titration and gravimetric analysis.
  2. Computer lab: which aims to teach students some uses of computers in chemistry, relevant software programs, the Internet & its utilization in searching for articles, periodicals, and properties of chemical compounds.
  3. Physical chemistry laboratory: where students are trained to conduct some experiments related to solubility and activity coefficient , heat of solution , equilibrium constant and distribution coefficient , phase diagram of partially miscible liquids , two-component system of simple eutectic type , three component system , phase diagram of two components that deviates negatively from Raoult’s law , density and viscosity , heat of vaporization , refractometry , bomb calorimetry, and partial molar volume .
  4. Instrumental analysis laboratory: Students are trained in the use of specialized devices in chemical analysis such as polarimetry, refractometry, pH - titrations, potentiometry, conductometry, electrogravimetry, coulometry and spectrometry.
  5. Analytical chemistry laboratory: which involves experiments related to classical chemical analysis. It provides basic information about safety rules, tools of analytical chemistry, statistics for data treatment, and practice to various gravimetric and volumetric methods of analysis.
  6. Inorganic chemistry laboratory: which focuses on training the students on different groups of experiments. The first group deals with the descriptive chemistry of the chemical properties of metals such as iron. The second group deals with the study of some chemical reactions of inorganic compounds. The third group deals with preparation of some complex compounds with the necessary methods of analysis, including electronic spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy, geometric, photovoltaic and communicative symmetry.
  7. Organic Chemistry Lab: Students conduct experiments covering basic laboratory techniques such as determination of physical properties (melting point and boiling point) and methods of separation (extraction, distillation and steam distillation) and purification (crystallization and chromatography).

B - Facilities and laboratories available in the Faculty of Education:

  1. Computer Lab: This laboratory meets the needs of students from the requirements of different courses, as this laboratory provides Internet service, which helps students to use these devices for the purposes of registration, research and various applications.
  2. Language Lab: It contains computers and other specialized devices related to the purposes of developing language skills of conversation and listening to the students of the program.
  3. Laboratory of practical education: This laboratory provides students with the use of smart board in the practical application of effective teaching skills, as well as the employment of video conferences with schools or educational institutions outside the university.
  4. Mini Laboratory: This laboratory consists of a hall that contains complete equipment to be used as a laboratory for mini-education, and to support courses of practical education, where through this laboratory can connect the classrooms in different schools in the university, allowing students to study with their teacher to watch or Re-watch the recorded classrooms and conduct educational discussions around them.

C- Other additional services available include:

  • Purchase department
  • Dispensing rooms
  • Lab technician rooms
  • B5200 Glass blowing room
  • B5200 Electronic workshop room
  • Chemical Central store
  • GF Computer services
 

Teaching and Learning

The Department of Chemistry and the Faculty of Education provide the appropriate educational environment for students. Where courses are offered depending on the student's study plan.
The Faculty of Science and the College of Education provide classrooms and laboratories suitable for teaching and learning. In addition to providing other educational aids such as LCDs, computer labs and laboratories equipped with the necessary modern equipment in practical courses as well as library facilities.
Students must develop the skills and knowledge necessary to perform complex tasks. Students should also learn when and how to apply the skills and knowledge they have learned. As teachers we need to work on the development of areas of skills and awareness of these elements for students and make sure to invest in the correct and effective ways.
Upon completing the B. Sc.( Major Chemistry – Minor Education) study plan the graduate supposed to be able to:

  • Teaching chemistry subjects for students in grades 5 through 10.
  • Completion of graduate studies (Master and above) in the methods of teaching science and other educational subjects.
  • Completion of his studies in the Master of Science in Chemistry (subject to the study of a number of courses from the bachelor level in pure chemistry).
  • The ability to produce educational media and the use of modern learning and teaching methods.
 

Coursework and Assessment

Teaching undergraduate students (Major Chemistry – Minor Education) based on lectures, scientific reports, presentations, seminars, examinations and practical training. The undergraduate student follows the study plan and the advisory plan to complete the compulsory and elective courses required.
Students' performance assessment is based mainly on theoretical exams, as well as the use of other assessment methods, including seminars, laboratory reports, homework and practical training, which focus on training students on creativity, mastery, dedication and giving in order to develop the concepts of scientific research, thinking and creativity.
In assessment of a completed course, a numerical scale 0-4 in whole numbers is used.
