About Us

The Department of Chemistry was established in the year 1939 and it actively supports the Engineering departments by handling Chemistry subject for all the diploma courses. The faculty of the Department is actively involved in teaching, consultancy work and research. The students are given training in analytical methods and are taught about the need and application of engineering materials. The main focus on laboratory training is to inculcate a sense of discipline. Depending on the need the students of the diploma in Foundry Technology are given a specialize training in metallurgical analysis supported by a sound theoretical background. Further the department extends facilities and guidance to final year diploma students who take up interdisciplinary and industry oriented projects.

Mission

The Mission of the Department of Chemistry is to develop the students in the application and use of Chemical science in Engineering by imparting the knowledge on:

  • The basic chemistry and chemical reactions
  • Interpretation to specific behavior of different Engineering materials
  • Practical applications of chemistry in selection and use of materials for different Engineering requirements
  • Vision

  • To be a forerunner to equip the students with the fundamental knowledge on Chemical Science to understand the mechanical, chemical and metallurgical properties of Engineering Materials.

      The chemistry lab is housed in a total area of 1860 sq.ft and can easily accommodate 40 students at a time. It has separate labs with all facilities to conduct physical, analytical and inorganic experiments for various diploma courses. The lab has a network of LPG gas pipelines for heating purposes. It has a continuous water supply of both salt water and de-ionized water. Separate fume cupboard and exhaust fans are available to remove any toxic gases. There is a separate storeroom to stock all chemicals and glass wares. There is a preparation room to prepare reagents and stock solutions and the basic infrastructure of the laboratory supports academic, research as well as consultancy services for industries.
