Post-Graduate 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.
