Masters

At the postgraduate level, we offer Integrated B.Sc. M.Sc. Ph.D. with Integrated B.Sc. M.Sc.(Research) as an exit option, Integrated M.Sc. Ph.D. with M.Sc. (Research) as an exit option, and Ph.D. There are multiple options for achieving various degrees depending on the student’s choice if they maintain the required CGPA . In a normal scenario, o ne can obtain Integrated B.Sc. M.Sc (degree for 5 years, Integrated B.Sc. M.Sc. Ph.D. for 8 years, Integrated M.Sc. Ph.D. for 5 years, M.Sc. (Research) for 2 years and Ph.D. for 4 years.

Post-Graduate Chemistry Courses

Chemistry PG courses are designed in such a fashion that allows the students to develop their knowledge further on both the fundamentals of chemistry viz. organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry and simultaneously correlate the knowledge gained at the various probable interfaces. The knowledge acquired is further strengthened with the computational aspects, and related applications, wherever possible. A vast opportunity to choose a varied set of elective courses in the curriculum allow students to prepare for their future opportunities. Foundation courses in the first semester ensure that all students possess the requisite background to complete the course of study and benefit fully from the program. Well-equipped research labs offer good platform to the students to learn and improve the research skills, develop capabilities to write research proposals, research exposure via in depth dissertation under the supervision of a research advisor, and enhance capability to present scientifically during the course structure. This includes literature seminars, presentation skills and more importantly a public thesis defense. The chemistry department offers a flexible and broad curriculum that prepares students in a step-wise manner, not just for a career in chemistry and related fields upon graduation, but also assists in acquiring the leadership qualities.

Eligibility for Post-Graduate Programs

While students with 60% in M.Sc. in natural sciences are eligible to apply for the Ph.D. program the students with CGPA equivalent to 60% marks in B Sc. (3 years) in chemistry are eligible to apply for the integrated M.Sc. Ph.D. and M.Sc. (Research) programs. Major courses in the first two semesters ensure that the students possess and attains both the basic and advance further in all the requisite courses including inorganic organic and physical chemistry. A key goal of the post graduate programs is to offer innovative thinking skills to the students, and by preparing them with both the essential and advance skills required to have better prospects in future. This preparedness is essential not only in terms of developing a sustainable world but also adaptability to the ever changing job market. This is achievable with our outstanding faculty of international repute educating and training the bright students.
