Chemistry
 

The Department of Chemistry was started in the year 1977-78 to offer B.Sc. Chemistry programme with a sanctioned strength of 32. The course provides a stronger foundation for higher studies like M.Sc. Chemistry And M.Sc. Applied Chemistry. A well-furnished laboratory caters the needs of the major and allied students. The department is a recognised research centre offering M.Phil. programme in Chemistry from the year 2011-12.
