Message from HOD

Primary aim of our department is to outline the future of our students through chemical sciences. Our main focus is to monitor the students’ academic performance along with the overall development of the students to mould a society. Students are streamlined to do research in various fields of chemistry after completing their Master’s degree programme. I had inspiring help from an outstanding chemistry teacher. Mrs Brandt encouraged my interest in chemistry- Tomas Lindahl (Nobel Laureate)
