About the Department:

Since the inception of the college in the year 1996, the Department of Chemistry has been functioning efficiently. “Chemistry begins in the stars. The stars are the source of the chemical elements, which are the building blocks of matter and the core of our subject” said Peter Atkins. The basic thrust is on developing core competence in Chemistry and exploration of new ideas through original thinking and discovering new layers of knowledge to the students to meet the requirements of the society.
