The School of Chemical Sciences (SCS) is a unique centre for learning that fosters innovative scientific ideas through an interdisciplinary approach and interactive teaching and research in frontal areas of the chemical sciences. The School pursues research in applied and green chemistry, nano-chemistry, polymer chemistry, petroleum products, supramolecules and macromolecules, kinetics and catalysis, physical organic chemistry, synthetic organic and inorganic chemistry, nanochemistry, and bioorganic chemistry. The students at the School undergo several levels of learning with more extensive and more in-depth exposure to virtually every aspect of chemical sciences: theoretical, applied, instrumental, computational, experimental, and physicochemical understanding. The syllabus of M.Sc. chemical sciences is designed in such a way that it helps students understand and enhance their knowledge about the subject for qualifying any of the national level entrance examinations and deepen their creative outlook. The School provides professional training and research practice, which helps to develop advanced scientific and research skills of the students. After course completion, students are eligible to become a researcher, project assistant, project associate, junior research fellow, senior research fellow, scientific writer, subject matter expert, faculty members, scientists, and others.
Faculty and students of the School have been publishing their research findings in reputed international journals, books, and science magazines. The School has been pursuing innovative approaches and playing a vital role in linking the results of science and their usage in society and endeavouring to bridge the gap between physical and biological sciences. The indigenously developed methodology has also gained further importance due to interdisciplinary approaches in various fields like nanotechnology, renewable energy, bio-inspired molecules, multifunctional supramolecules, and green engineering to a level of successful technology transfer to industries. These sciences are useful to design and develop new molecular entities and methods to apply in various fields, such as defence, electronics, communication, and space research. The School offers the choice-based credit systems (CBCS) learning.
As per the expertise of the faculty members, the School conducts innovative and advanced optional short term and certification courses along with the primary course curricula. Seminars, workshops, interactions, and discussions are regularly organized for academic development and knowledge enrichment with equal opportunities. The congenial academic environment for creative learning, interacting, expressing ideas is being maintained in the School so that the talent of students is expressed without hesitation for innovative, productive, and advanced learning and research. The School takes the utmost care of each and every student for excellent learning and shaping up as an accountable and responsible citizen. The School offers the following courses.
