Ph. D in Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry, established in 1962, has since emerged as one of the leading science Departments of the University of Jammu. Set up with a meager strength of faculty members, the Department now has six professors, five readers, two senior lecturers and one lecturer for a strength of eighty two students (at Post Graduate level), fourteen (at M. Phil. level) and thirteen (Ph.D. level) students besides non-teaching staff. All the faculty members have excelled in their respective specialization in teaching as well as in research.
The students are given rigorous training for a period of two years for their Master's degree programme to meet the growing challenges in various sectors. Many of them are serving in industry, atomic energy establishments, faculty members in Universities and Colleges and some have even excelled in administrative services. Based upon academic achievements of faculty members both nationally and internationally, the Department of Science and Technology has adjudged the Department for funding under FIST level-1 head to pursue research in the thrust areas. Along with academic achievements, the department is aiming to strengthen instrumentation programme and is in process to provide many more such facilities.
