Why to Study Chemistry?

Chemistry is nowadays recognized as central science as it is the interface between all the major areas of science and technology. It allows us to rationalize the processes happens in living organisms, earth, environment. For manufacturing devices a strong background in chemistry is essential. So, the students who wants to pursue their career in different areas of science and technology, chemistry becomes indispensable.

Unification of Theoretical Knowledge and Practical Skills

As one of the most research active departments, department of chemistry and biochemistry is currently providing an ideal blend of strong theoretical knowledge and research skills. The futuristic curriculum is designed to enable students to rationalize and solve different types of scientific and socially relevant problems.


  • To create, develop and disseminate new knowledge in chemical sciences.
