The Department of Chemistry was established in 1989 and B.Sc. (Honors) Chemistry was introduced in 2016. The four year degree course provides comprehensive knowledge in all branches of chemistry. The department has well equipped laboratories to train students for future avenues and encourages them to take up innovative research projects.

The students have ample opportunities for employment in chemical industries, analytical centers, pharmaceutical industries, R&D institutions etc. Those desirous of going for higher studies can pursue various courses, such as M.Sc. in Chemistry, Environmental Science, Polymer Science, Forensic Science, Biotechnology etc. Those willing to diversify may pursue MBA or MCA.

Many of our students have been selected for Master’s and Doctorate programs in various prestigious universities and institutes, like the University of Delhi, Indian Institute of Technology Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research, Indian Institute of Management, University at Buffalo (U.S.A.), University of Glasgow (U.K.), University College (Ireland), amongst many others.

The chemical society, Alchemy, in collaboration with other departments organizes technical fest in each academic session. In addition, webinars, seminars, training courses and workshops are organized at frequent intervals to apprise the students of various advancements in the field.

The Department of Chemistry has three well-equipped labs, namely:

  • Chemistry Lab 1
  • Chemistry Lab 2
  • Chemistry Lab 3

The labs are well equipped with various instruments like UV-visible spectrophotometer, electronic balances, centrifuge-microprocessor based (16000 rpm), magnetic stirrers with hot plate, vortex shaker, rotary vacuum pumps, digital pH meter, digital and electric melting point apparatus, distillation units, fume hood, etc. The department has separate balance room and store room.

A small library/book club in the department is used by faculty members and students. The Department has three computers and a laptop with internet facility. They are available for academic, administrative purposes and as a peripheral for spectrophotometer instrument.
