Department of Chemistry

The department of Chemistry started in the year 1997 and engaged in teaching applied chemistry to the first year students of all branches in engineering. The department has highly qualified, dedicated and experienced faculties, presently headed by Dr. Anitha Sudhir. The department aims to impart high quality education, inspiring students  to compete globally and to develop scientific outlook with analytical mind. The faculty members  attend FDP, Workshops and Seminars to upgrade their knowledge. Department has R&D center recognized by VTU, Belagavi. The faculties involve both in teaching as well as research and publish research papers in various national and international journals. At present, four faculties are guiding the students for Ph.D degree and have applied for the project.


To be a knowledge sharing center, enabling fresh minds to acquire fundamental insights into chemical science which contribute intellectually vibrant individuals for the welfare of the society.


The department of chemistry established primarily as a part of the institute shall strive:

  • To provide strong fundamentals in chemistry to all the engineering programs.
  • To support the developmental activities of the college and make the department vibrant through research activities.
