Student’s Enrichment Programme : Expert Lecture

The department also conducts various co-curricular and extra-curricular activities such as excursion tours, peer-learning programs, group discussion and many competitions like extempore speech, essay writing, poster making, quiz, power-point presentation etc. PG students are mainly sent to visit the pharmaceutical companies (IPCA, Lupin, Zest etc.)  to gain the knowledge of manufacturing and quality assurance of the drugs.  Also they are sent to participate in the workshop/seminar organized at other PG institutes, to get the better understanding of the subject.

Parent’s-Teacher meeting is also organized in the department, at least once in a year, particularly for M. Sc. students.

In the academic session 2018-19, the department has arranged job interviews for the post of medical representative for UG, PG- pass outs and final year students with Group Pharmaceuticals which deals with dental care products. About 25 students appeared for the interview and 05 students were selected.

In the year 2019, the department has constituted an association of M. Sc. student’s and teacher under the name “The Council of Chemistry”.  The purpose of constituting this association is to foster scientific temper and to promote the general welfare of the department and the organization.

Every year, two enlightening posters on chemistry, made by the faculty member, are displayed by the department in the College Knowledge Gallery.
