B.Sc. (Hons.) | DURATION: 3 YEARS

Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

Programme Overview:

The course has been designed to have insight in almost all the aspects of chemistry and to build a solid foundation in the subject to choose a career in industry/academics or Research. Also, the course provides a good measure of flexibility and choice as per interest. Chemistry is one of the fundamental of the sciences. Core chemistry topics include: Chemical Kinetics &Dynamics, Organic & Inorganic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Stereo Chemistry, Organic Synthesis, Thermodynamics, Surface Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Industrial Chemistry, Green Chemistry, Heterocyclic Chemistry, Electra—Chemistry, Chemistry of Materials, Environmental Chemistry, etc.

Pedagogy:

The Department of Chemistry at Royal Global University aims at developing young talents for the chemical industry and imbibes in them other strengths such that they are able to venture into allied fields too. The aim of the department through the courses it offers is to provide "a cut above the rest” man-power to the ever growing demands of the industry and to prepare students for higher studies and research. The interactive method of teaching at Royal Global University is to bring about attitudinal changes to future professionals of the industry. Equal importance is given to practical and theoretical methods of learning. Industrial projects are integral part of the curriculum. Apart from the syllabus, the University emphasises on Value Addition Programs like Current Affairs, Holistic Education, Certificate Courses and Placement Training Programs, which include training students in group discussions, facing interviews and so on.

    Conductivity Meter

    Potentiometer

    Viscometer

    Stalagmometer

    Spectrophotometer

    Water distillation setup

    Water bath

    BOD incubator

    Electric stirrer

    Magnetic hot plate

Career Opportunities:

Graduate can pursue M.Sc. followed by M.Phil./ Ph.D. or management degree and they are also employable for:

    FMCG companies

    Drug Companies

    Paint Industries

    Chemical Manufacturing

    Research & Development Industries

    Food & Agricultural Industries

    Academics etc.

Programme Outcome:

After the degree course graduates should be able to navigate the scientific literature and databases. This includes being able to obtain information and prepare experimental information for publication. They should be able to design and execute new chemical experiments. The design and execution of the experiment should demonstrate an understanding of good laboratory practice (chemical hygiene, personal protective wear, etc.) and the proper handling of chemical waste streams. The students should be able to obtain and interpret experimental and spectroscopic data related to their research. They should be able to communicate their understanding of chemical principles to a lay audience. For instance, they should to be able to explain how chemistry relates to the real world (e.g., economy, environment, healthcare, etc.).
