About Department

The Department of Applied Chemistry was established as a separate department in 1989. The Chemistry section was as a part of the Department of Chemistry Fuel & Metallurgy since 1926.The department offers 3 academic programmes. 5 year integrated M.Sc in Chemistry(started in 2006) admission for which is through IIT JEE, 2 year M.Sc in Chemistry(started in 2006) admission for which is through ISM Entrance Examination, M.Phil in Applied Chemistry (started in 1982) admission for which is through NET/GATE or an all India level test conducted by ISM. The department also offers Ph. D programme, for which candidates are selected through NET/GATE or ISM Entrance Test, also offers a number of courses in various B. Tech and M. Tech programmes.
