The Department of Industrial Chemistry, one of the prime Departments of the University, was established in 1985. It offers M.Sc., M.Phil., and Ph.D. in Chemistry, and M. Phil. Chemistry (Week-End) programme. Many advanced instruments such as, HR SEM, UV-VIS, FT IR, AAS, Elemental analyser, TG/DTA, DSC, Impedance analyser, Electrochemical workstations, Computer colour matching and Ozonator were purchased from various funds from UGC and DST and housed in the department. Internet and Wi-Fi facilities are available in the entire Department.
It has generated over Rs. 11 Crore of funds from UGC, DST, AICTE, DRDO, and CSIR to carry out research projects in many advanced research areas.
