The department of Chemistry, one of the most upgrading Science departments, was established in 1965 with the vision of spreading knowledge of basic science among the pupils. After long time running, considering the great demand for Chemistry Honours, the Honours course has been introduced in the year of 2013.
The department runs with highly qualified, energetic and motivated faculty members. All the faculty members are student friendly, conscious about their duties and possess sound knowledge in their respective area of specialization as well as in computer usage. All the non-teaching stuffs (Laboratory attendants and store keepers) are very sincere and cooperative.
The department is proud to possess one well equipped laboratory with all required apparatus, visual teaching aids and other necessary instruments required to fulfill the Chemistry Honours curriculum of the University. The Honours students of the department enjoy the facility of an excellent seminar library in their own Department. The general students can access central library as their resource.
Most of the faculty members are engaged in active research, both nationally and internationally. One of the faculty members, Dr. Amitava Dutta, spent four years (1998-2002) as Post-Doctoral fellow funded by National Science Council, Tiwan. He also spent three years (2008-2011) as Visiting Fellow at Institute of Chemistry, Academia Sinica, Tiwan and has many collaborative work with eminent scientists of the said institute. Dr. Amit Kumar Dutta, a young faculty member, has been recently sanctioned a minor research project, which he is about to initiate soon, by UGC. He is going to purchase some modern instruments and equipments for the said project which will, in turn, enrich the department. Ananda Gopal Sarkar, a part-time faculty member, is a Ph.D scholar under University of Calcutta. Soumyajit Sett, our guest faculty member, is pursuing his Ph.D as well, and is going to submit his thesis soon.
Looking at the present upgraded and enhanced infrastructural facilities, the Department has recently been granted affiliation by Vidyasagar University, to introduce the Post Graduate course in the subject in distance mode.
