Department of Chemistry

Department of Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry started functioning in the year 1996 in aided stream. The Department offers an undergraduate programme in Chemistry. The curriculum involves disciplines comprising of Chemistry and Petrochemicals as the core subjects, Mathematics and Computer Science as complimentary subjects, and English as a common subject in 1st and 2nd semester. There is no second language. The department conducts seminars and workshops for the benefit of under graduate students of our college and for the students of various colleges under M.G University.

As far as the syllabus is concerned, it covers the complete syllabus of BSc. Chemistry main stream in addition to Petro chemistry. The curriculum provides an overview of Chemical industries as well as the Petrochemical field. The course is designed to study the basic concepts, novel experiments, intensification and advancement as well as day today relevance of all branches of chemistry such as Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical and Quantum Chemistry. The knowledge of theory is further expanded by practical sessions in the laboratory.

The general aspects of the programme also deal with petroleum, the formation of petroleum, refinement of petroleum, process in petrochemical industry and petrochemicals. Our curriculum provides chances for improving the skills essential for handling the equipment and instruments in the laboratories and also motivates the students to enter into the fascinating world of research. The programme provides industrial visits which improve the chances of the students to be exposed to the different processes used in industries as well as their applications.

Petrochemicals have become an essential part of the world chemical industry today. The petrochemical sector has been one of the fastest growing sectors in the world economy. The course provides opportunity for career development in various fields related to petroleum, petrochemicals and polymer based industries. This course is a stepping stone to higher studies in any stream of Chemistry or Petroleum Chemistry. It also finds scope in petroleum and petrochemical industries as well as chemical industries.
