Chemistry

Introduction to the course

Chemistry is the central science of the composition, structure, properties, and reaction of materials, namely atomic and molecular system. B.Sc. (Hons.) Chemistry is an under-graduate chemistry course that lasts for the span of 3 years i.e. 6 semesters. This course requires the minimum eligibility criteria as the candidate must complete 10+2 examination in science stream with a minimum of 50% marks secured in chemistry subject in aggregate from a recognized board of the country. B.Sc. Honours in Chemistry course is designed to provide a rich mix of fundamental courses in all the sciences, namely chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics for first four semester and then to develop advanced theoretical, practical, and research skills, during on Chemical sciences and allied subjects among students during last two semesters. It is a more standardised degree and focuses usually on Chemical Sciences. In the present course structure, the six main branches of Chemistry viz. organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, material chemistry and biological chemistry have been focused along with some innovative skill enhancement areas as prescribed by Choice Based Credit Course system of UGC.

Successful completion of the Bachelor of Science in course in chemistry will provide the foundation for students either to embark on a career in chemistry or to pursue advanced degrees in chemistry and allied interdisciplinary areas. The strong laboratory programme, exposure to modern instrumentation, and the research training will be of immense value to students in either pursuit. Nowadays most of the industries use the chemicals in everything directly or indirectly like in pharmaceuticals, electronic products, construction even in food products. This creates an opportunity for chemical science graduates, as they have vast and in-depth knowledge about the different types of chemicals, compositions and their properties. The research laboratories, industries (mainly chemical & pharmaceutical) and colleges & universities are the three major sectors where they recruit the chemical graduates.

What are the learning outcomes?

  • To develop the ability to apply the principles of Chemistry.
  • To appreciate the achievements in Chemistry and to know the role of Chemistry in nature and in society.
  • To develop problem solving skills.

Introduction to the course

Students who wish to pursue a more specialized course of study and become more competitive in their fields of employment may choose to get a Masters degree in a science field.  Post-graduate education in chemistry is generally pursued by students who have an undergraduate degree in the same field. However, a M.Sc. in Chemistry is often more specialized, allowing students to pursue a specific type or area in the field of chemistry. Most people with an MSc in Chemistry pursue careers in research, teaching, laboratory work, or medicine. The course offered by Adamas University consists of advanced lessons in, Bioanalytical Chemistry, Solid State Chemistry, Materials Sciences, and Polymer Sciences along with traditional specialization like Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Physical Chemistr, and Analytical Chemistry. M.Sc in Chemistry is two years duration i.e. course with four semesters. Candidates who have completed their graduate level of education in Chemistry or related fields can join this course.

There are various higher study options for candidates who have completed their post graduation in Chemistry. They can join for various other post graduation and research courses related to the topic. Some of the higher study options are listed below.

  • Master of Philosophy in Applied Chemistry
  • Master of Philosophy in Chemistry
  • Master of Philosophy in Geoengineering
  • Diploma in Paint Technology
  • Doctor of Philosophy in Applied Chemistry
  • Doctor of Philosophy in Chemistry
  • Doctor of Philosophy in Industrial Chemistry

The degree can also be useful for some engineers and people who work in industry, as well as people interested in certain areas of environmental science. Post graduates in MSc. Chemistry can find various jobs in both public and private sector organisations. Various job profiles available for graduates in MSc. Chemistry are listed below:
