The up-gradation of the Department of Chemistry, University of Peshawar, to the Institute of Chemical Sciences was announced on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee celebration of the Department of Chemistry in November 2005. The parent institution, the Department of Chemistry was established in September 1955 when the University of Peshawar was merely five years old. With a student number of eleven, initially the department started with three teachers. With the passage of time, it grew in all dimensions offering students the opportunity to study with highly qualified faculty in diverse fields, including Analytical, Applied, Bio, Environmental, Fuel, Inorganic, Organic, Physical, Nuclear & Radio Chemistry. With strong commitments to quality education, higher degree programs were initiated and so far have produced hundreds of M.Sc., 150 M.Phil., and Ph.D. in the diverse areas of chemistry.
The main drive behind the establishment of the Institute of Chemical Sciences (ICS) is to have a major educational institution of excellence in all areas of contemporary chemistry and allied disciplines. Like its predecessor, the Institute of Chemical Sciences is producing graduates of international standard in the established as well as emerging areas of chemical sciences. Having highly qualified faculty members with degrees and training in diverse areas of specialization, the ICS provides an ideal environment for students in almost all areas of contemporary chemistry. Admission has been very competitive and only the best students could be admitted. With positive commitment, discipline and strong teacher-student interaction, attention is always focused on arousing curiosity, developing of critical thought, nurturing the spirit of enquiry, and growing capacities for independent thought and judgment of the students.
To be a regional institute of excellence in chemical and allied sciences.
To make the institute vision a reality. The institute of Chemical Sciences is commited to the Taining of graduates of international standards at M.S.c, M.Phil. and Ph.D. levels in areas of chemistry including Analytical, Applied, Bio, Environmental, Fuel, Inorganic, Nuclear & Radio (nuclear medicine), Organic and Physical Chemistry. Conducting quality basic and applied research, offering consultancy to local industries and institutions and to participate in community development projects.
