Introduction to the Program: The program is open to students with 10+2 passed in Science with Chemistry as compulsory paper. A B.Sc. (Hons) in Chemistry not only provides a rigorous study of the science itself but endows the student with valuable transferable skills. This is essential for the professional development of the individual and readiness for a variety of employment. A strong laboratory component allows the students to explore a range of experiments from classic ones to those that are more recent and advanced. A platter of advanced discipline specific elective offers a glimpse into frontier areas of research and allow students to choose a field of specialization for higher study and socially as well as globally relevant foundation courses will help them to become more competent and confident in their professional career.  

Program Educational Objective:

PSO 01: To cultivate a firm foundation in the fundamentals and application of current chemical and scientific theories including those in Analytical, Inorganic, Organic and Physical Chemistries. PSO 02: To appreciate the importance of various elements present in the periodic table, coordination chemistry and structure of molecules, properties of compounds, structural determination of complexes using theories and instruments. PSO 03: To be able to design and carry out scientific experiments as well as accurately record and analyze the results of such experiments. PSO 04: To employ critical thinking and the scientific knowledge to design, carry out, record and analyse the results of chemical reactions. PSO 05: To create an awareness of the impact of chemistry on the environment, society, and development outside the scientific community
