Chemistry is the study of the smallest particles that come together to form the world around us. To ensure that our technology is always advancing, we need the best chemists to constantly innovate and develop new materials that increase our technological prowess.

Incepted in 1946, the Department of Chemistry, part of the umbrella Basic Sciences Department offers holistic training and a conducive environment for Undergraduate education, and research in Engineering Chemistry and related inter-disciplinary programmes. The department’s research and innovations are oriented towards mitigating risk and monitoring infrastructure and human health for a conducive environment. Innovations span polymer-based sensors for structural health monitoring, and tracking of stored water and device development to tap carbon from diesel engine vehicles supported by robust research.

Industry collaborations with Triton Valves Limited and Anode Business Solutions further provide opportunities to students to progress towards creating meaningful solutions for a safer world. This department and its erudite faculty with several achievements in its portfolio can catalyse your career as a change agent.
