Chemistry is the science of matter and the changes it undergoes. The science of matter is also addressed by physics, but while physics takes a more general and fundamental approach, chemistry is more specialized, being concerned with the composition, behaviour, structure, and properties of matter, as well as the changes it undergoes during chemical reactions. The Master of Science degree in Chemistry is offered on a part-time basis as well.
The curriculum spread across 4 semesters, encourages students in pursuing a career in chemistry.
The degree course gives a solid base for higher degree programmes in subjects such as M.Phil & Ph.D. for research work. They can have jobs in the following areas such as the food and drink industry; utilities and energy research; health and medical organizations. Candidates have also the options of joining scientific research organizations and agencies. They can become a teacher at school level after it and after having passed the NET exam they can go for permanent jobs in colleges and universities.
