About the Department

The Department of Chemistry was established in 2015 and initiating the Undergraduate course in Chemistry. The Department of Chemistry houses 1 Laboratory, 1 Store stacked with Lab-wares, 3 Classrooms and 1 Staff-room. The Department has a plan of starting a new Master Degree Course.

Formal lectures will be made more effective and useful by providing students with synopses of lectures and bibliography. Besides lectures, there will be assignments, guided library work, seminars, etc. Audio-visual aids, models, laboratory work, workshop and field experience will also form part of the teaching process. To make teaching more effective and intensive, tutorials will be arranged. These tutorials will also serve as a feed-back for the teachers, enable him to evaluate the student’s analytical ability and progress and promote staff student interaction.

The chemistry Department was established in the year 2015 to provide education, to impart knowledge and to promote research and extension activities. The department has well equipped laboratories with well equipped apparatus and instruments. In our department basic chemistry foundation was provided through lectures and laboratory courses to the students of the B.Sc chemistry. This program trains future chemists with hands-on experience on pure sciences and skill based knowledge.

Scope of B.Sc Chemistry

  • The employment areas for the B. Sc Chemistry graduates include pharmaceutical industries, chemical manufacturers, Forensic Science Department, plastic industries, agrochemical industries, etc. Apart from these, they are also recruited in other fields such as oil, gas and power sectors and even in defense services.
  • Chemistry is the study of matter and the changes it undergoes and considers both macroscopic and microscopic information. Matter is anything that has mass and occupies space. The five main disciplines of chemistry are physical chemistry, organic chemistry, Inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry and biochemistry.
  • Chemistry is very important because it helps us to know the composition, structure& changes of matter. All the matters are made up of chemistry. In our every day like various chemical are being used in various from, some of those are being used as food, some of those used clanging etc.
  • B. Sc Chemistry is the under graduate degree awarded by many universities in India for the students after the successful completion of their graduation in chemistry. The course in chemistry is useful for the students in various aspects and offers them with bright career. The course helps the students in improving their diverse skills in various areas such as laboratory skills, numerical and computing skills, ability to approach to the problems both analytically and logically, time management skills, etc. The B. Sc chemistry graduates have many options for their higher studies. Majority of these graduates opt for master’s degree in the same. But they can also choose various specialized areas in this field for the post graduation courses. Many universities offer the study of chemistry at post graduate and at doctoral levels.
  • Some of the higher study options after B. Sc Chemistry are:-M. Sc. Chemistry, M. Sc. Analytical Chemistry, M. Sc. Drug Chemistry, M. Sc. Organic Pharmaceutical Chemistry, M. Sc. Physical & Materials Chemistry and One of the major certification courses for the B. Sc Chemistry graduates is Post-Graduate Diploma in Analytical Chemistry (PGDAC).
  • Career Opportunities after B. Sc Chemistry:- The chemicals are used in almost every field such as medicines, food products, and electronics and even in construction activities. This creates many opportunities for the chemistry graduates in diverse fields. The industries, specially chemical and pharmaceutical, the universities and government laboratories are the three major employers who recruit Chemistry graduates. The entry level jobs in this field usually require at least the bachelor’s degree in chemistry, but majority of the jobs like research needs candidates with PhD in the same.The chemical industries are also doing well in India and there is huge demand for chemists for various positions. Some of the job types for these graduates include Analytical Chemist, Biomedical Chemist, Chemical Engineering Associate, Industrial Research Scientist, Lab Chemist, Materials Technologist, Production Chemist, Production Officer, Quality Controller, R&D Director, Research & Development Manager, Safety Health And Environment Specialist and Teacher.
  • The employment areas for the B. Sc Chemistry graduates include pharmaceutical industries, chemical manufacturers, Forensic Science Department, plastic industries, agrochemical industries, etc. Apart from these, they are also recruited in other fields such as oil, gas and power sectors and even in defense services. Wide options exist for those who have complete B. Sc Chemistry (hons) study. Candidates can opt for higher studies by joining PG course. B. Sc is the common choice for most of the graduates. M.Tech is a good option too from any of the prominent technical institutes. After PG, if interested join for PhD course. Candidates who want to pursue a career in teaching filed can attend UGC NET exam and join as lectures in colleges or universities. Candidates can attempt government competitive examinations namely UPSC, SSC to get jobs in these departments. Candidates can apply for technical jobs in forensic departments, research firms, Lab Chemist, Quality Control, health And Environment, agrochemical industries etc.
