Since inception of the institute (1960), the Department is sincerely engaged in teaching the students of different engineering courses in both UG and PG levels. The Department began its supreme journey with M. Tech. Programme in Corrosion Science & Technology in 1987. Later on, M.Sc. in Chemistry has been introduced (2009). From 2017, the Department has started 5 years integrated M. Sc. course in Chemistry. The department is gifted with a galaxy of enthusiastic and dedicated faculty members.
Besides the quality teaching, the faculty members have also contributed a lot to elevate the prestige of the institute through their research activities of international standard. Over these years, the department has observed a steady momentum of growth due to the cumulative efforts of the faculty members, motivated students and the supporting staffs.
The Department regularly organizes Summer/Winter Schools, Workshops, Seminars and Conferences which bring together nationally renowned scientists, persons engaged in academics and industry. The faculty members of this department are devoted to the research activities in various fields of chemistry such as Electrochemistry, Natural Product Chemistry, Photochemistry, Environmental Chemistry, Coordination Chemistry, Bioinorganic, Biophysical chemistry and others. At present, several DST sponsored research projects are going on where a number of research scholars are pursuing their Ph.D. work. Many externally funded projects have been completed successfully in the recent past. The faculty members are publishing research papers in reputed international journals (SCI) with impact factors at a regular basis. Achievement of the department has been acknowledged by DST, GoI by granting fund under DST-FIST Scheme to uplift academic excellence to the higher level.
