CHEMISTRY

Overview Of Chemistry

Rapid advancement in the field of medicine, military, space technology, communication, automobile industry, liquid crystals nanotechnology, etc are the areas which illustrate the growth of technology. The necessary input for the growth of technology is provided by the scientific research. Hence, a student of engineering shall have a sound basic knowledge of Chemistry and Physics of materials available or synthesized. A blend of Science and Technology is of a need for the hour.
Chemistry is the science that deals with the composition of materials, their structures and properties, the transformations they undergo, and the energy changes that accompany these transformations. The goal of engineering chemistry department is to provide broad as well as fundamental knowledge of theoretical, applied and experimental chemistry to the budding engineers to enable them to embark on professional careers of their choice. Therefore, Chemistry as Engineering Chemistry has become an integral part of Technical education.

Vision

Foster the fundamental principles of chemistry in engineering applications to achieve excellence in research and innovation.  

Mission

 Promoting excellence in technical education and scientific research through the effective use of Chemistry in real-time engineering problems through a synergistic combination of teaching and research.
