The Department of Chemistry was established in the year 2001 to preparing the students for careers in all the fields of engineering aspects and also carry out basic and applied research work. The department is headed by Dr. Jayadev. The department has well qualified and experienced faculty members as per the AICTE norms. Two of them are Doctorate and remaining faculties are perusing Ph.D. The Department has four non-teaching staff.
The main activity of the department is to teach engineering chemistry theory and Laboratory courses to the under graduate engineering students of all disciplines. The Department is a recognized research centre by VTU. All faculty members are actively engaged in research work and many research scholars have registered for Ph.D. The Department has two labs and well equipped with instruments and glass wares. The department is constantly organizing conferences/seminars and FDP programs.
