Department of Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry was established in the year 2001 and has been devoted to teaching and advanced research in Chemistry. The department has distinguished itself as a Centre for innovative and pioneering teaching and research in different fields of Chemistry. It was elevated to the status of VTU Research Centre in 2011 in recognition of its achievements in various fields and received sponsored projects from VTU Research Grant and VGST. The major research efforts are focused on areas such as catalysis, reaction kinetics, corrosion, polymers, nanomaterials, and electrochemistry. To ignite the quest for chemistry and its versatile applications in the young minds of future engineers the department organizes various activities such as guest lectures, quiz, workshops, conferences, and seminars. To kindle the interest and encourage the prospective researchers in the fields of material science the department successfully organized two days national seminar on “Recent Advances in Material Science” – 2011- and two-days National Conference on “Frontiers and Challenges in Chemistry” - 2013. Also, the department of Chemistry organizes an International Conference on Innovations and Challenges in Science and Technology every year. The faculty members in the department are actively betrothed to Teaching as well as in Research.

  • Pass in PUC/10+2 Examination with Physics and Mathematics as compulsory subjects along with one of the chemistry/Computer science/ Electronics/Technical vocational subjects and obtained at least 45% marks (40% in case of candidate belonging to SC/ST category) in the above subjects taken together of any Board recognized by the respective State Governments / Union Territories or any other qualification recognized as equivalent there to.

  • The CET / COMEDK Exams (entrance exam) get over; normally the aspiring students would be able to assess their performance and seat allotment possibilities to the college of their preference. Therefore, after CET / COMEDK exams, there would be acceleration in the admission process under Management Quota.

  • To have assured seat under Management Quota, it is necessary to secure your seat early by complying with the terms and conditions.
