Course programme

The Chemistry department was a part of the formerly department of applied sciences and humanities that has existed as a catering department for all other engineering departments right from the beginning. Chemistry has grown out as an independent department very recently (01.08.2009). The department is on the process of starting courses on its own and an integrated M.Sc. (Chemistry) programme is soon gong to be launched. Teaching engineering chemistry to the first year engineering undergraduate students is the main academic activity of the department at the moment. Other post-graduate courses are also on the anvil. The department also offers open elective courses for undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students.

The main focus of the department is research and the department has active research groups working on:

1. Polymer synthesis and characterization
2. Organic synthesis
3. Drug designing
4. Nanomaterial synthesis and characterization
5. Heterogeneous catalysis

The department is offering Ph.D. on these and related frontier areas of chemistry. Many external and institute funded research projects are ongoing/completed and a significant number of papers are being published every year from the department.
