Welcome To Our Department


The Department of Chemistry, which came into existence in 1947, is striving to become an institution of National excellence in Chemistry and to become a National R& D Centre in the field of Chemical Science and Technology. The Department offers two, three-year Degree courses, B.Sc Chemistry and B.Sc industrial Chemistry and one Post graduate course, apart from being a Research Centre.

Vision


  • To be an institution of national excellence in education in chemistry
  • To become a National R&D centre in the field of chemical science and technology with reference to industry and society
  • To establish a balance between education, innovation, research and service

Mission


  • The mission of the Post Graduate Department of Chemistry and Research Centre is to advance the chemical sciences through the education of undergraduate and postgraduate students by providing them with quality education, research and job opportunities. With a high standard of excellence in all these areas, the Department will produce students with knowledge in chemistry who can think critically.

Department at a glance


  • The Department came into existence in 1947, with the inception of thethree-year degree course, under the able leadership of Prof.K.A.Joseph.
  • In 1982 the Department became a PostGgraduateDepartment as a result of the strenuous efforts put in by Prof. A. J. Benjamin, who later retired as the Principal of the College.
  • Became a Research Centre in the year 2000, under Mahatma Gandhi University.
  • Introduced three-year degree course in Vocational Chemistry in 2001, in the semester pattern.
  • The Kerala State Pollution Control Board accredited the Department laboratory as a B Grade Analytical Laboratory under the Board in 2007 and is continued to be accredited till date.

The Ministry of Science and Technology, Govt. of India, has identified the department as a “FIST aided Department” in 2008 and again in 2013.  One of the beneficiary Departments of “Star College” scheme of DBT.
