About The Department

Situated in the scenic green campus of Adamas University, Kolkata, the Department of Chemistry started its activity in 2015. Our Department is located in close proximity to other departments in the natural sciences – mathematics, physics, forensic science, geographical science, life science as well as many interdisciplinary centers and state-of-the-art shared facilities, making the Department a rich environment for our students and faculty members.

The chemistry major is designed to take you where you want to go. Chemistry Department, Adamas University offers an innovative curriculum to help students succeed in the chemical industry, academia, medicine, education, and so much more.  With great career and research opportunities, there’s never been a better time to choose Chemistry at Adamas University. The Department has flexibility in framing courses and conducting tests and examinations. The Department conducts programs at the Bachelor’s, Master’s as well as the Doctoral Research levels. The Department of Chemistry is committed to fostering a respectful workplace culture. We endeavor to foster a benign, comprehensive and impartial environment where our, faculty members, staff members, researchers and students can thrive as they advance new chemical frontiers through research, innovation, collaboration and scholarship.

From the classroom to the lab, innovation is always in the air at Adamas University. We are always working to offer students exciting and challenging educational experiences, in and outside the classroom.

In addition to these programs conducted by the Department, the faculties regularly offer several core and elective chemistry courses to the Engineering, Biotechnology, Science (other than Physics) and Law students of the University.

Our Vision

The Vision of the Department of Chemistry is to generate and disseminate Chemistry education among its pupils such that at individual level, a Chemistry graduate should be inspired with a sense of curiosity and wonder about the fundamental nature of the world around the student,  be empowered with the ability to make decisions about their own lives and critically evaluate scientific and technological developments that impact society and lastly  be equipped with the knowledge and skills to pursue further study and rewarding careers in the chemical sciences and a wide range of related fields.

Our Mission

1: To represent a clear framework or narrative that gives a coherent ‘big picture’ of chemistry as a subject, explains why it matters, and shows how different areas of content are connected.

2: To prepare competitive and professional graduates within an innovative and intellectually stimulating environment, support other academic programs at Adamas University by offering quality chemistry learning experiences, conduct basic and applied research of national and international impact.

3: To advance knowledge platform that supports an invent-and-design culture in graduate and undergraduate chemistry education and that empowers students to address and solve challenges of global significance.

4: To reach out to our future thought leaders—students of all backgrounds from pre-college to doctoral candidates—to share the power of chemistry to create new knowledge directed at the major unmet needs of our time.

Dr. Rupam Sen

Associate Professor And Head Of The Department

Prof-in-Charge of Central Instrumentation Center (CIC)

Department Of Chemistry, School of Basic & Applied Science

An eminent scholar with 15 years of experience in research, Dr. Rupam Sen has joined Adamas University as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry. After successfully finishing his Ph.D. from Jadavpur University, Kolkata on MOF-based multifunctional materials synthesis, he received the FCT-international postdoctoral fellowship, where he worked on the same field at Universidade de Aveiro, after finishing this he was awarded the prestigious fellowship JSPS (Japan Society for the promotion of Science), Japan and worked in Kyushu University, Fukuoka on the development of photo/thermo responsive materials which can be used as the potential actuator at molecular level. During his Ph. D. and post-doctoral research he published a lot of research articles in the journal of international repute. He also earned the prestigious Dr. D. S. Kothari post-doctoral fellowship, National Scholarship and Silver medal as meritorious student during his early studies. He is still actively engaged in research work and more will be executed in the Adamas University.  Recently he has received the Early Career Research Grant from DST-SERB and Grant from University for higher research. He is now developing hybrid systems for site specific MOF-based heterogeneous catalysis in Adamas University. He also has expertise reviewing international and national journals. Besides his outstanding academic and research, he is very amiable person which make him easy approachable for the students. After all, Dr. Sen looks forward to encourage the Adamas University students not for only studying but also for social and cultural development, which will create a constructive and healthy atmosphere everywhere. Interested research fellows (Ph.D./post-doct), summer trainees and students are welcome to contact Dr. Sen.
