Department of “Chemical technologies” was founded in 2019 as a result of the merging of the lecturing staff of the departments of “Organic chemical technologies and chemical engineering” and “Technology of water, inorganic substances and silicates”. The two departments have been formed with the founding of the Higher Institute of Chemical Technology and, over time, were subjected to various organizational changes. They have long history and accumulated experience in both education of chemical engineers and in science. Today, the Department of “Chemical technologies” teaches students of the professional field of “Chemical technologies” with educational degrees of Bachelor and Master.

The main goal of the education is to train qualified chemical technology specialists in chemical technologies which are to meet the needs of chemical engineers in the enterprises of the chemical and other industries.
