The department of Engineering Chemistry was started in the year 2007.It aims at imparting quality education and providing individual care to all of the students,while playing an active role in their overall development. The department has since then maintained good academic results in addition to playing an important role in the other activities of the college.
Engineering Chemistry is a subject that is included for First year students as per VTU curriculum. It deals with the fundamental concepts of Organic, Inorganic, Analytical, Physical, Bio Chemistry and Nano Technology etc.
Engineering Chemistry is a bridge that connects Pure Science with Engineering practices. It aims at providing a strong foundation for students of engineering and is one of the indispensable departments of the Institute. As the Chemistry taught is of the undergraduate level, the Department has well equipped laboratories which enable faculty and students to employ the fundamental principles which help create innovative new technologies.
The research activities taken up by the faculty in the department include areas, such as Analytical Chemistry, Drug Analysis, Phytochemical investigations, Medicinal Chemistry and Nano Technology. The department extends its expertise and facilities to the local community, industries and academic institutions through services like testing and consultancy, training programs, and guest lectures, etc.
The Department of Basic Science has a students’ club called the “SCIENCE CLUB”. The activity of the club provides a unique platform to students of all branches of engineering to exhibit their creativity and innovative ideas. NSS activities like Blood Donation camp and Green environment activities are also being conducted for the students to create an awareness of their social responsibilities to the society.
The Department teaches courses on Chemistry to Undergraduate (B.E) students. Also, runs Ph. D. program in Chemistry.
The Department has energetic and dedicated faculty members who, apart from teaching, are actively engaged in research. The members of the department have published their research papers in National and International Journals.
The vision of the department is not only to transform young people to be capable and motivated professionals but also to contribute to the overall development of the nation through their skill, research and academic activities.
