Department of Chemistry is devoted to teaching and advanced research in Chemistry. The department has distinguished itself as a Centre for
innovative and pioneering teaching and research in different fields of Chemistry. It was elevated to the status of VTU Research Centre in
2011 in recognition to its achievements in the area of Kinetics and Catalysis, and received sponsored project under the status of VTU
Research Grant. The major research efforts are focused on such areas as catalysis, reaction kinetics, corrosion, polymers and
To ignite the quest for chemistry and its versatile applications in the young minds of future engineers the Department organizes various
activities such as guest lectures, quiz and seminars. To kindle the interest and facilitate the upcoming researchers in the fields of
material science the department successfully organized two days national seminar on “Recent advances in Material Science” and two days
National Conference on “Frontiers and Challenges in Chemistry”. The faculty members in the department are engaged in teaching and have
publications in national and international journals.
