B.Sc. – Chemistry


To be a Centre of Excellence of International repute in education and research in the field of Chemistry and other related Interdisciplinary Sciences.


To promote the advancement of science and technology in the broadest in chemistry in all of its branches and other related interdisciplinary areas through quality education, research and service missions that produce technically competent, socially committed technocrats and scientists.


The Department of Chemistry is Established in 1984, it is one of the oldest in all aspects and has played an important role in the University. The Department of Chemistry started offering B.Sc. in Chemistry in 2015. The institute is accredited by NAAC ‘A’ grade and the faculties of the Department are also highly competent, intellectual and devoted. The faculty members are well-versed in a variety of fields and have undergone training in Japan, the United Kingdom, France, Malaysia, South Korea, and Taiwan, among other places. They are interested not only in teaching but also in advanced research. The Department has well-equipped research laboratories, internet, and library facilities, which enable students to generate creative ideas. It has an independent research laboratory for organic synthesis as well (1000 sq.ft.).

The Faculty members are carrying out research in the following areas: Energy materials, Polymer Chemistry, Nanocatalysis, Bioinorganic Chemistry, Computational Chemistry, Electrochemistry, Organic Synthesis, Environmental Applications, Supramolecular Chemistry, etc. The Department has a separate departmental library with more than 500 books / technical journals and magazines and acts as a catalyst for the achievement of the students.

Why B.Sc.- Chemistry?

Chemistry is concerned with the essence of all substances and the modifications that occur within them. The study of chemistry will provide students with information that will help them understand and appreciate the world in which they live. Furthermore, knowledge of chemistry is extremely useful in fields such as engineering, biology, and medicine.

The Department’s degree programmes emphasise experimentation, learning through hands-on laboratory experience, and research-driven problem-solving. The objective of the graduate programme in chemistry is to provide a setting for graduates to broaden their skills in order to become the cream of the crop in scientific research and education, capable of making original contributions to the development of chemistry and related disciplines.

The programme aims at accomplishing 3 major objectives:

Expertise in Chemistry: Will be able to meet the needs of chemistry-related industries and laboratories, including pharmaceutical/analytical chemistry.

Professional Growth: Will be able to show information literacy skills in order to acquire chemistry expertise as a chemist/researcher and as a life-long learner.

Analytical Skills: Will be able to easily convey scientific knowledge and research findings in written and oral formats to both trained scientists and the general public.

Research Based Approach

Kalasalingam Academy of Research and Education is focused and involved in research-based studies and the university has been offered grants from time to time funded by different prestigious departments working in the field of Science & Technology. The Institution is granted the funding for doing research and development in the field of Science & Technology. Students in B.Sc, the projects based on funding projects which are received from government and also community-based work such as water sensor and treatment. By taking research and practical exposure of the students, faculty motivates the students of B.Sc.-Chemistry to do brainstorming and think out of the box.
