Welcome to the Department of Chemistry. The Department started functioning from the year 2010 with five year integrated M.Sc Chemistry. The Department has the distinction of starting the first two year PG program in Science at CUTN. Besides, the state-of-the-art PG and research laboratories were established. The Department is committed to excellence in chemistry by establishing research programs for meeting scientific and technological challenges faced by the ever changing, science centered world of the 21st century.
The department is presently offering M.Sc, Integrated M.Sc. and Ph.D. programmes. The Department provides ample opportunity for the students to accumulate a thorough fundamental knowledge of all fields of Chemistry. Meticulous lecture courses in the general areas of inorganic, organic and physical chemistry are conducted regularly in addition to the state-of-the art laboratory courses which provides hands-on experience to the students at all levels.
The main focus of the department is to instil the necessary spark and provide the scientific impetus so that the students can virtually experience the jiggling and wiggling of atoms and molecules. To enable students to have a glimpse of contemporary research, both in terms of academia and industry, the final year students in Chemistry will be completely engaged in project works. Our aim is to produce highly sought after and knowledgeable graduates for pursuing careers with academia, industry and government.
