MS & PhD program is offered in two major streams of Chemistry.
Applied Organic Chemistry (specialization)
Applied Organic Chemistry: (Organic Synthesis, Natural Product and Medicinal Chemistry)
Chemistry of Composite Materials
Industrial Chemistry (specialization)
Studies towards MS / PhD in each of these two streams can be undertaken. From each stream.
Four courses are to be taken in first semester and four courses in the second semester. In the third and fourth semesters, a research project is to be undertaken under the guidance of supervisor.
The lists of the compulsory and elective courses of each stream are cited below. The students can take any elective course in consultation with the supervisor in order to acquire the knowledge reference to the research project offered.
