Chemistry is a fundamental and applied science, which is overlapping biology, physics, pharmacy and material sciences and provides the foundation on which the understanding of the natural and material world depends. The department has an exceptionally interactive and collegial community of scientists with strong student-faculty interactions offering the facilities of training and education to the next generation of students in all aspects of career development to make them able to give services to the community at the highest level of excellence. This department is considered one of the most productive departments of the campus in terms of innovative research and international publications. The research laboratory at the Department of Chemistry is one of the most sophisticated labs of the campus providing the basic necessary facilities of the academic and applied research in the department. The achievements of the department are reflected by a huge number of alumni working in various educational and professional institutions and many others pursuing their higher studies in various reputed universities of the country. The research work carried out by various faculty members of the department resulted in more than twenty research papers published in internationally reputed journals during the last couple of years. The Department of Chemistry was established at the Sub-Campus Mianwali, University of Sargodha in 2013, and currently offering BS Chemistry (4-year) programs in Inorganic, Organic, and Physical specialization which are designed to meet the ever-growing needs in the field of chemical sciences.

Central Library is an academic hub of research and discovery for the UMW community. CL offers outstanding multidisciplinary resources and services in support to university academic and research objectives.

This prestigious library of University of Mianwali has also been striving to support its users to solve the Socioeconomic issues prevailing these days. CL is equipped with all required sources of information both in hard and digital formats. In addition to the facilities, our library is committed to accomplish the most pivotal role in information acquisition, organization, retrieval, access and use. The managers have always been focusing on enhancing the quality of system and services. Students, faculty, researchers and other stakeholders are encouraged, motivated and facilitated to take maximum benefit of the library. It is a matter of satisfaction that we have developed our web online public access catalogue (OPAC) that can help the users to reach our library database worldwide and remotely accessible 24/7.
