The present world is going through a marvelous transformation, and in the field of research its effects are clearly distinguishable. We in the Department of Chemistry, want to be a part of this transformation utilizing our core strengths in teaching and research. Our department which started way back in 1995, covers all the major areas of Chemistry, viz. inorganic, organic, physical and theoretical chemistry. In addition to teaching chemistry courses to the undergraduate students of B. Tech in Chemical Science and Technology (CST) & advanced chemistry courses to the students of M.Sc. and the research scholars intending to do Ph.D., the department is actively engaged in research in the frontier areas of contemporary importance. The meticulous teaching and research which the M.Sc. and Ph.D. students get, helps them to overcome the complexity of the research and liberate themselves from the confines of mere teaching competencies and presume the role of a complete chemist. The courses taught in the department are uniquely designed to train students with a comprehensive outlook. The department is equipped with state of art sophisticated instrument facilities having all major analytical instruments along with a modern computer lab. The focus of the courses in the department is on building qualitative research aptitude cum scientific temperament as well as modern industrial skills, which is requisite for each of our students to do well in their life. In our Department we have 40 faculties from all the major areas of Chemistry with brilliant academic background. The faculties are actively involved in different sponsored research projects from numerous funding agencies. Being an integral part of an institution of the stature of IITG naturally helps the department and its programmes imbibe all the values and ethos that have made the institute an epitome of excellence.
