Overview

Chemistry is always viewed as a scientific tool which could harness natural resources to enhance our lives in different ways. Organic Chemistry began as the chemistry of life, compounds, and the study of structure, properties, composition, and reactions. Organic chemistry is used for agrochemicals, dyestuff, clothes, food stuffs, perfumes, metals for various applications, and explosives. It has become an interdisciplinary subject for the synthesis of various materials with wide applications among which sustainable energy source is one, where many organic compounds are synthesised for photovoltaic cells, light emitting diodes as alternative high energy sources.

Objective

Our outcome-based curriculum emphasising the critical, analytical and problem-solving skills to equip students to pursue a scientific and research career with better preparedness and a mature professional outlook.

Our program,

  • Imparts higher level knowledge and understanding of analytical chemistry.
  • Prepares students to evaluate the soundness of chemical concepts.
  • Trains students to perform chemical experiments using standard laboratory equipment and modern instrumentation in order to gather reliable data.
  • Enables students to conduct data processing, computation, data analysis and numerical simulations.
  • Teaches students proper procedures and regulations for the safe handling and use of chemicals.
  • Hones skills to pursue chemistry as a teaching and in research.
  • Trains students in teamwork for lifelong learning for continuous professional development.

Highlights

  • Elective Specialisation

    There are electives in the program, grouped so that students can specialise in a chosen field. Students can also opt for elective courses across multiple streams given affordability and approval from a course leader, HoDs and Deans, and this requires that guidelines are followed.

  • Online Elective

    There is also a provision for students to choose elective courses through online mode such as MOOC’s, SWAYAM, NPTEL and other equivalent platforms. For such courses students should adhere to the guidelines prescribed by the University.

  • International Competitions

    The student can also earn 3 or 4 credits by participating in the international competitions like technical presentation/​conference/​publications in the journal etc., and winning the award in that. In that case he/​she can be exempted from one of the elective courses of the programme

  • Industry Internship or Project

    A student can opt for an internship in an industry, a business or research organisation. Alternately, students can undertake a mini-project which requires self-directed study that can be pursued with an affiliated faculty member. The internship needs to be approved by the HoD and Dean and students have to submit a report and make a presentation to a panel constituted by the HoD for assessment.

  • Dissertation and Publication

    This course includes a dissertation and publication. Each student has to choose a relevant topic for a dissertation and this needs to be approved by a committee constituted by the HoD. The dissertation should then be converted into a technical paper published in reputed conferences or journals.

  • Uses an application-based learning program.

  • Offers research opportunities.

  • Includes internship, training, and placement support with various universities worldwide.

  • Includes expert guest lectures from various institutions and industries.

  • Includes workshops, industry visits, group discussions and debates.

  • Offers small batches to encourage in-depth learning.

  • Group project and dissertation as output.

  • Trains students in higher order critical thinking and the ability to think rigorously and independently to meet higher level expectations of academia and research.

  • We offer accommodation in student hostels on our campus, and even offer third-party off-campus hotels where necessary to ensure students can focus on what matters the most. 
  • Our on-campus facilities include WiFi any time of the day, 24/7.
  • From a host of eateries and laundry facilities, we ensure that students have access to all facilities.
  • We encourage students to participate in co-curricular activities on campus which include sports and cultural events, both at a university level and a faculty level.
  • We help students focus on independent and sponsored research with projects and a dissertation.
