Department of Chemistry

On behalf of the students, staff, and faculty members of the department of Chemistry, I welcome you to this webpage! This website has all the useful and relevant information about the department. You will be able to find the profiles of our faculty members, their ongoing research, funding, and information on patents that may be of interest to industries, facilities and academic programs.

We are a vibrant and a young community continuously aspiring to define our success in terms of excellence in research and teaching. Well-equipped with the state of art facilities, our motivated Ph.D. students work alongside our faculty members to drive theoretical and experimental research spanning across the chemistry of life to sustainable living. Instilling confidence among the students to consciously challenge and trespass the conventional boundaries in science in pursuit of knowledge is our strength. The ecosystem in the department enables students to engage in creative and critical inquiries leading to the cross-pollination of ideas across the disciplines. Well-curated doses of interaction with accomplished academicians and industry experts enable the students to develop a perspective of the subject, society, and its purpose.

Teaching and Research happen in a synergistic manner in the department. The M. Sc Chemistry curriculum is the first of its kind as it augments fresh thinking among students by offering the subject in a holistic way under the broad themes of Structure, Energetics and Dynamics instead of compartmentalizing into physical, organic, and inorganic. You will find more about this under Programmes and Courses.

It is never all work and no play. Our students have great fun at work and take lead in not only academic projects but also a number of social, and outreach events to engage with the public and school students. Please visit our Events page to know more.

If you have an aspiring mind with an attitude to work hard and be a part of an exciting journey in pursuing knowledge, you can find out how to join us in our academic programs.
