Chemistry puts you at the heart of science, and Chemistry graduates are in demand by some of the most successful industries in India. Chemistry is often referred to as the ‘central science’ because an understanding of materials at a molecular level underpins research and development from Biology to Solid State Physics. Modern chemical research is a creative activity involving techniques across this wide range of science to actively design and synthesize molecules and materials, and determine their properties. A degree in Chemistry makes you highly employable: not only does it provide you with quantitative and practical skills for scientific and technical roles, but it also develops your transferable skills such as problem-solving that are valued by all employers. After graduation, student can get enrolled in PG courses such as M.Sc. in Inorganic, Organic, Physical, Analytical, Polymer Science, Forensic Science, Material Science, Biotechnology, Nanotechnology etc. The Department of Chemistry has well equipped laboratories with required chemicals for conducting regular practical classes as well as research activities. These labs are also equipped with instruments like Spectrophotometer, Conductivity meters, pH meters, Flame Photometers, colorimeter, UV-visible spectrophotomer, Centrifuge Machines, Digital Balances etc.
