Chemistry is a central science which helps to understand the origin of life and suggest ways to use non-living things for giving comfort to life. To train the young generation and to direct their approach to accomplish this task easily, it is necessary to make the students understand the principles underlying the composition, structure and properties of substances along with the transformation that they undergo.
The three year integrated B.Sc. Chemistry degree course consists of papers both in theory and experimental aspects of the subject, which has become central to the physical, biological and material sciences. This course provides a route not only to more advanced aspects of the subject itself but also to diverse fields such as biochemistry, biotechnology, chemical biology and nanotechnology.
The Department of Chemistry is equipped with many modern instruments for training of students for challenging careers and research. These include, pH/Ion meters, conductometers, polarimeters, refractometers, potentiometers, electrochemical analyzers, HPLC, atomic absorption spectrometers, UVVisible spectrophotometers, FTIR Spectrometers, flame photometers, computers, deionizers, analytical balances, ovens, furnaces, centrifuges as well as a substantial stock of glassware and chemicals.
A person with a B.Sc. degree in chemistry has a wide choice of employment opportunities especially in one of the many industries listed below and research institutions that are emerging in the country. These include the: Textile industry, Pharmaceutical Industry, Clinical laboratories, Oil refineries Chemical industry, Paint industry, Cement industry, Beverages & Food product industry, Analytical & instrumental services, agencies, Polymer industry.
