The Department

Vision

In our continued quest for knowledge, the department seeks to draw upon the best, bond with the best and deliver the best. The immense responsibility that lies with us towards various stakeholders in education compels us to connect with the best knowledge pool. The teaching-learning transaction is improved manifold by forming various bonds, the ionic bond- give and take, the covalent bond – let us learn together and the coordinate covalent bond – gain and share.


Objectives

Chemistry places a strong emphasis on understanding of the structures and properties of matter from the nano level to molecular level, which is the base for most of the applied sciences. Expertise in chemistry provides countless employment opportunities in every industry, research and quality control, diagnostics, forensic investigations etc.

The short and long term goals of the department are:
Recognize the needs of students and cater to their demands.
To encourage students to further their knowledge beyond the scope of syllabus and exams.
Openness to new ideas and keeping abreast of changing times.
With Hyderabad emerging as a hub of pharmaceutical industry, the department aims to provide competent women power.
To start industry- specific certificate courses to encourage entrepreneurship and increase students’ employability.
