Department of Chemistry  

The department of chemistry was established in 1961 as under graduate department so as to cater the education of weaker/deprived section of society, rural population and various adjoining districts of the state. It evolved itself into a well known, reputed academic centre and hence the managing committee of the college in 1985 decided to open post graduate classes to fulfil the requirement of passing out graduates. Department has well-equipped and ventilated laboratories with continuous running water and LPG supply. It also has an ‘instrumentation room’ for conducting practicals. To pursue research work, there are two research laboratories. Department provides a rich library facility to the post graduate students and teachers which comprising approximately 600 books related to syllabus. There are two class rooms for conducting post graduate classes and two big store rooms for storage of chemicals and glasswares. Department also has two computers with internet facility, a scanner and printer. The department is enriched with basic amenities.


Department offers undergraduate courses with different combinations, viz. Physics, Maths, Zoology, Botany, Chemistry, Industrial Chemistry and also post graduate courses with choice of sixteen elective papers for M.Sc. final students. The department runs Ph.D. program also.


The chemistry department has excellent team of diligent and committed teachers. There are six associate professors, five assistant professors and seven supporting staff in the department. For effective teaching, ICT tools are used to make the subject more interesting. In order to update knowledge, teachers participate in refresher courses, orientation programs, faculty development programs, short term courses, winter and summer schools for better classroom teaching. Along with the academic development of PG students, department also has a Chemical Society running since 2003. Under the banner of Chemical Society activities like seminars, quiz competitions, power point presentations etc. are conducted to enrich and encourage the academic and creative potential of the students. PG students are motivated by the teachers to participate in various competitive exams (NET, GATE etc,) and for higher studies. To inculcate scientific temper, enhance practical ability and perceive the knowledge of instruments the teachers guide the students so they work efficiently in different national laboratories using advance techniques.
