DEPARTMENT OF STUDIES IN CHEMISTRY

CHEMISTRY is a Science of change and is considered the Central Science, which touches upon all other frontiers of Science/technology. There has been enormous growth in the past 30 years with many new applications in Biotechnology, Materials, Medicine, Nanotechnology, Environmental Health, Alternative Fuels and Forensic Science. By studying the basic properties of substances and transformations they undergo, the chemist finds solution to scientific challenges and contributes to the development of new technologies.

The PG Wing of SBRR Mahajana First Grade College(affiliated to the University of Mysore) offers a master’s degree in CHEMISTRY from the academic year 2013-14, which is a 2 year ( 4 semesters) programme. The Programme is designed to provide:

  1. Excellent foundation in chemistry, both theoretical concepts and practical applications.
  2. Solid training to permit graduates to obtain responsible positions in industries, research labs, government agencies and educational institutions.
  3. Strong preparations for pursuing Ph.D and other higher professional programs.
  4. Excellent student- teacher ratio and friendly atmosphere.
  5. Qualified faculty (Ph.Ds) as per UGC norms.
