Under Graduate Programme (B.Sc. Chemistry)

Welcome to graduate studies in the Department of Chemistry. Chemistry deals with the nature of all substances and the changes that arise therein. The study of chemistry can afford knowledge that will provide students a greater understanding and appreciation of the globe in which they live. Further, awareness of chemistry is an immense asset in areas such as engineering, biology, and health-related fields.

Degree programmes offered by the Department emphasize discovery, learning through hands-on laboratory and research driven problem solving. Intend of the graduate programme in chemistry is to afford a milieu for graduands to widen the skills to become cream of the crop in scientific research and education, proficient of making original assistance to the advancement of chemistry and related disciplines.

Under Graduate Programme (B.Sc. Forensic Science)

The Department offers B.Sc in Forensic Science which is accredited with The Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences (CSoFS), UK. After completion of the programme, students will be eligible for Associate Membership from CSoFS. The programme offers both theoretical and practical knowledge in diverse areas including forensic molecular biology, forensic chemistry and toxicology etc. related to forensic science.

Post Graduate Programme (M. Sc. Chemistry)

Since the Department has dynamic research programmes in numerous areas, the students in the Master of Science degree itself have the opportunity to perform cutting edge research in the thrust areas of Organic, Inorganic, Physical and Analytical Chemistry under the potential supervision of the vibrant faculty of the department.

Having the significance of the competitive examinations, the today’s nucleus in higher education, such as Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE), National Eligibility Test (CSIR-UGC NET), State Eligibility Test (SET) etc. in mind, the curriculum and syllabus for M.Sc. programme are designed with specialized subjects of current interests.

 

Research Programmes

Master of Philosophy (M. Phil.) in Chemistry

Although the post graduates from the Department of Chemistry would have precise knowledge in cutting-edge research, a one year Master of Philosophy in Chemistry, a post graduate research program, is introduced to enhance their specific research awareness for further extent to know what the exact research is!. Also, taking into account the post graduates from elsewhere with no initiative / minimal initiative about cutting-edge research, this one year Master of Philosophy course is inducted. In addition to the avant-garde research, the students of Master of Philosophy course study advanced courses / course work in connection with research as well.

 

Doctor of Philosophy (Ph. D.) in Chemistry

Research at the Department of Chemistry of Kalasalingam University occupies a unique and vital role in the University. The faculties are pursuing  cutting-edge research in advanced areas of chemistry and addressing questions that affect various aspects of human lives in a broad range such as Nanocatalysis, Bioinorganic Chemistry, Computational Chemistry, Electrochemistry, Polymers, Organic Synthesis,  Supramolecular Chemistry,  Energy and Environmental Applications, etc.
