Prof Don CraigProfessor Don Craig
Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUGS)

Welcome to the teaching pages of the Chemistry Department, Imperial College London. Whether you’re a current or a prospective student you’ll find a great deal of useful information in these pages about our undergraduate courses and how the chemistry degrees at Imperial work.

My name is Don Craig and I’m a Professor of Organic Chemistry and Director of Undergraduate Studies. The DUGS role encompasses both operational and strategic management of the Department’s undergraduate programmes, so it’s a substantive job that involves working with a wide variety of people including fellow academics, administrative staff, technicians, alumni, employers and of course our current students to make sure Imperial Chemistry courses are both challenging, stimulating and enjoyable and provide the best preparation for both further study and future employment.

I’m contactable by email at and also at for more general enquiries. The chemugadmin email is monitored daily by all the staff in the student services centre, and your questions and requests for information will be responded to as soon as possible.

We hope that you find the pages useful. However, if you have a query about the content or an idea about information you’d like to see on the pages please simply let us know via the email address and we’ll try our best to answer any questions you may have.
