The Department of Chemistry has been engaged in opening up the fascinating world of Chemistry to students since 1982. Established in the year 1952, the department was upgraded to UG level in 1982. We offer First Degree Programme with Physics and Mathematics as complementary subjects. We also teach Chemistry as complementary subject to the Botany and Zoology core students.
