Chemistry is a fundamental branch of science devoted to the study of the nature, properties, composition, and interaction of matter. Chemistry covers broadly three branches, viz. organic, inorganic and physical chemistry. However, today’s scientific world demands scientists to think across disciplines; consequently, there are numerous sub-branches of chemistry such as environmental chemistry, analytical chemistry, industrial chemistry, green chemistry, biochemistry, nanochemistry, biophysical chemistry, catalysis and many more.
The Department of Chemistry was established in the year 2012, with the inception of the institute. The department has well qualified and experienced faculty members with good infrastructure. The Department offers instruction in Engineering Chemistry to the students in different branches at B. Tech. level. The curriculum is designed according to the requirements of all the branches of engineering.
The department is equipped with various instruments. Besides teaching, the highly qualified and energetic faculty members of the Department are committed to elevating the prestige of the institute through their research activities of both basic and applied areas of chemistry.
Majority of the faculty members in the Department have individual major and minor research projects funded by Department of Science and Technology (DST) and University Grant Commission (UGC).
