Learning by compulsion is monotonous; Learning by option is prosperous,

Yes, this saying is truly relevant to our UG course of chemistry. We have PCM and CBZ combinations fetched prosperous 300+ students who are gaining in depth knowledge of chemistry in six semester course syllabi approved   by KUD. Chemistry subject was incepted in 1964 went through major and minor system and now changed to semester based system. We have blend with trust and team work of dedicated staffs in the department. Our team effort fetched several ranks to the department. We had privilege of organizing Chem- Forum, International Year Chem celebrations and won project award worth of 50 lakhs sponsored by vision group – CISE project. Recently we are completed Rs 25 lakhs   project financed by Karnataka Jnaana Aayoga and the same was acclaimed as model for under graduate by Honorable Karnataka Govt. Our HOD, Prof. P. M. Honavar has Indian property right on filtrate extension. Our vision is to organize international conference on chemical science in the fourth coming days. We could able to establish under graduate research centre where extension work of research is going on and mirrored in the science magazine “Atom”. More than 25 lakhs worth instruments such as AAS, HPLC, UV, Flame photometer, polar meter are installed in said laboratory.

          We feel proud to say that our students are placed in IISc, MRF, Bio-con, Daffodil pharmaceuticals and outside the Indian soil as researcher, scientist and other refuted organizations.
