Chemistry-2

The Department of Chemistry came into existence in the year of 1964 offering Chemistry for pre-university classes and as an ancillary subject to Mathematics (B.Sc). The Under Graduate course B.Sc Chemistry was started in 1968 and the  Post Graduate course M.Sc. Chemistry was introduced in the year 1985 with 12 Students. The Department attained the status of research Centre by obtaining affiliation for Ph.D. in 2000 and subsequently M.Phil. (Fulltime and Part time) were introduced in 2001. The college attained autonomous status in the year 2009 and this helped the department to introduce application-oriented subjects and important topics to meet the current requirement of the industry. The mission and goal of the department is to motivate and mould the students in order to fulfil the demands of various fields such as Teaching, Industry, Research and Development.

Most of the under graduate and post graduate students continue higher studies and many of them are well placed in reputed organizations in research and teaching.  Conduct of seminars, workshops, lectures and conferences is also a part of academics which the student undergoes to get exposed to the current science. The Department has been revising the syllabus regularly under the choice-based system.  Apart from the academics, the students of the Department of Chemistry take part in various co-curricular and extra-curricular activities and win many prizes and bring laurels to the department and to the college.
