A strong point of this program is that the students during final semester are allocated a faculty supervisor for their project work on the campus. This prepares our students to face the challenges of industrial R & D and academic research.
School offers Ph.D (Chemistry) in following specialized areas: Analytical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Organometallic Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Nano Chemistry, Nano-Materials and Bio-physical Chemistry.
Eligibility: A candidate seeking admission to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy must have obtained MSc or equivalent with minimum CGPA of 6.00 on a 10 point scale or 55% marks in aggregate where marks are awarded or NET (UGC/CSIR) qualified.
