The Department of Chemistry was started in 2020 with a BSc programme consisting of a single faculty member as it was newly introduced.
The thrust areas of BSc programme in Chemistry are:
To prepare students for a diverse and changing world. Our goal is to impart quality education towards the holistic development of students and we strive to contribute to a chemically literate society through teaching (with classrooms, labs), scholarship and service. Our vision is to emerge as a ‘Centre of Excellence for Higher Studies’ in the specialization of chemistry.
The Department of Chemistry provides rigorous preparation for citizens whose career paths require expertise in chemistry. Our mission is to awaken the young minds and discover their talents both in theory and in practical chemistry. It also aims at the advancement of intellectual, technological, cultural and economic condition of the State, region and Nation through the discovery and development of knowledge in the field of Chemistry. In support of our mission, the department faculty members strive to foster multi-disciplinary curriculum development to provide students with a breadth of course options in Polymer Science, Food Chemistry, Biochemistry, Environmental Science and Chemical education. The department is committed to communicate the excitement of chemistry to the public at large. To help us accomplish these goals, we remain dedicated to a core set of values: excellence in teaching, respect for all members of the department, diversity in our students, faculty and staff; and service to the citizens of the country.
