The department of Chemistry started functioning along with the department of Physics in 1982 as a pre-degree course. Currently Chemistry is taught as a complementary course of B. Sc. Physics for semesters I, II, III and IV. Since its inception the department has excelled in quality as well as in quantity. The expertise of the Faculty includes areas such as Membrane technology and Environmental science. The department has to its credit three UGC assisted minor projects. Students are guided in experimental and investigatory activities that stimulate curiosity and scientific temperament. The department ensures a good deal of faculty-student interaction and academic flexibility. Together with Physics department we entertain various co-curricular activities to project the artistic talents of the students beyond the academic peripheries.
