Department Of Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry was established in 2009, and it started offering B.Sc. course in and M.Sc. in 2014. The University courses of B.Sc. and M.Sc. are offered by the department under the CBCS pattern. The department renders the services to the rural students to meet the emerging challenges in the field of Chemistry globally.

The courses offered being general, students can acquire good knowledge of organic, inorganic, physical, analytical and industrial chemistry. The Department has well equipped, separate laboratories with various advanced scientific instruments to test and analyze the chemical compounds for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. At the Postgraduate level each student is required to execute a project in collaboration with an industry or a national laboratory.

Chemists, chemical technologists and technicians often work to develop practical processes for the large-scale manufacture of products. Qualified chemists will be responsible for devising new tests as new products are developed. Chemists play a key role in the development of drugs, which help to cure and alleviate diseases and prolong the life span. Chemists are involved in biochemistry and genetic engineering. Chemists are also at the forefront of developing fields such as nanotechnology. They are actively involved in environmental issues and are helping to tap new sources of energy to replace the earth's finite reserves of petroleum.

Mission

The staff and the students of the Department of Chemistry will strive together to achieve and maintain high academic standards through sustained, hard and creative work in teaching, learning, research and extension work in an atmosphere of mutual respect and healthy human relationship to cause the holistic development of students.
