Teaching activities encompass the training of research students and in-depth education at the master level. The faculty and staff are active in professional activities at the local and national levels, including the holding of offices in a number of organizations, such as the Indian Chemical Society, and serving on editorial boards.

AIM OF THE DEPARTMENT

From the beginning, the Department has tuned itself to the following aims and objectives:

  • To produce skilled man power of well trained chemists, capable of taking up positions in various socio economic sectors of the country;
  • To build research capabilities as required by the national development and academic needs;
  • To develop capabilities for the provision of consultancy and technical services as well as short term specialized training to both public and private sectors;
  • To produce teachers who will choose, produce and make use of local resources and educational media to enrich students’ learning;
  • To advance frontiers of knowledge in the area of chemical sciences;

To disseminate knowledge on chemistry and related areas through active participation in related professional activities, such as Chemical Societies of India, Regional Networking, Workshops, Symposia/Conferences and Publications.
