Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry was established in the year 2002, by Dr. B. E. Ramachandran and presently headed by Mrs. Bincy Rose Vergis from 2016. The department currently consists of a team of five devoted faculty members for teaching and 1 scientist for research and development, of which four of them are doctorates and two of them are pursuing their PhD programme.
Consistent and progressive performances have been recorded with a pass percentage of 100% in practical & 95% in theory examinations conducted by VTU. The faculty strives hard for better performance in all aspects to keep in line with the vision and mission of the department.


Vision

To aspire, achieve and sustain for excellence in academics

Mission

To nurture young minds and to bring awareness and flair for chemistry by personal attention and good guidance.

Program Educational Objectives

  1. To create interest in chemistry & research.
  2. To maintain high percentage of results.
  3. To give sound knowledge and create in interest in subject and in personality development.
  4. To inspire students to probe into the mysteries of the chemical world.

Program Outcomes

  1. Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of Mathematics, Science, Engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems
  2. Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex Engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, Natural sciences and engineering sciences
  3. Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the Information to provide valid conclusions
  5. Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern Engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  7. Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for Sustainable development
  8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  9. Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings
  10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering Community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports And design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the Engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and Leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  12. Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological
