B.Sc. (Honours) Chemistry

  • About program

    Chemistry is the central science. All aspects of technical development require people with expertise in chemistry. A basic chemical education is required by doctors, dentists, engineers, agriculturalists, foresters, factory managers, etc. Thus, there is a continuing need for chemistry teachers in the region. In addition there is an increasing need for graduates with some chemistry background for work in industry as quality control staff, production managers and in a range of government and private research laboratories, e.g. mineral exploration, environmental pollution monitoring, agriculture. The contribution of chemistry graduates to regional development is considerable.
    The teaching of chemistry at degree level at DIT University, Dehradun covers courses at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Courses at the undergraduate levels provide a basic framework in the important aspects of modern chemistry - atomic and molecular structure, thermochemistry, kinetics, electrochemistry, inorganic, spectroscopy, structure and mechanism in organic chemistry. This `basic' knowledge is then applied at the Engineering level to topics of considerable regional importance - instrumental analysis, industrial chemistry, environmental chemistry and polymer chemistry. In this way students are given a clear indication of how the principles of chemistry are important in the world around them.
