The Department (initially Department of Polymer Chemistry) was established in the year 1995. It offers 3 year B.Sc. degree programme in Chemistry with Physics and Mathematics as complementary subjects. The faculties of our department are members of many academic bodies in the University and have published papers in National and International Journals. In addition to that, they have presented papers in National and International Conferences.
Majority of the students, on completion of the degree course, get selected for PG courses in various university departments and colleges. Many young talented chemists have been shaped from this department, who are working in reputed research institutes and many of them possess doctoral degree. Apart from the academic activities, the students are exposed to latest scientific developments across the globe in Chemistry. In order to facilitate the students in their pursuit of knowledge, the department conducts seminars, workshops, science exhibition and quiz competitions. A journal viz; ‘Kevlar’ is being published from our department annually. For improving the performance of the department, tutorial sessions and Parent-Teacher-Student interactions are held periodically. To motivate the young talents, cash awards are presented to those students who secure highest marks in Chemistry in the second and final year degree examination.
