About Department

The Department of Chemistry offers a two-year Master’s degree course in Chemistry. Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) has been introduced from 2015 to keep the Student up-to-date with development of higher education in India and abroad. The Post- Graduate curricula is recently undergone major orientation congruent with the development and trends in the subject to help the students to seek a career in different thrust areas of the subject like Organic Synthesis, Organometallics, Material Chemistry, Nano-Chemistry and Environmental Chemistry etc. In order to gain competency in research IV semester Student has to take up research project in different area of Chemistry.

The Department of Chemistry also offers M. Phil. and Ph.D. degree. The M.Phil. course is suitably designed to equip the students with both theoretical and practical knowledge. The Ph.D. programs offered broad areas of Chemistry such as Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Bio–inorganic Chemistry, Water Treatments, Catalysis and Nanoparticles.

The Department of Chemistry also organizes conference and workshops in the field of Chemical Sciences.
