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.



At the end of the B.Sc Chemistry Programe, the graduates can understand the role of chemistry to rectify the social, economic and environmental problems. They can also understand various areas of chemistry and their applications in different spheres of chemical sciences.

  • The students will have a strong foundation in the fundamentals and applications in those areas like analytical, inorganic, organic, Physical industrial chemistry, environmental chemistry, polymer chemistry etc.
  • Equipped with knowledge on underlying principles in chemical experiments, to design, carry out, record and analyze the results carried out in the laboratory
  • The students become employable in chemical related areas like pharmaceutical, Dye, Polymer, Analytical and environmental labs and related industries.
  • The students can understand the causes of environmental pollution and can open up new methods for environmental issues.
  • The students gained knowledge on scientific approach towards various chemical reactions and lab safety.
