To be a department of inspired learning that encourages the building of strong knowledgebase, inquisitiveness and critical thinking amongst students.
To educate students for understanding chemical principles involved in engineering systems and also to make them aware about the global changes in the environment and its impact on the society.
Engineering Chemistry subject is taught in first/second semester of B.E. The basic objective of this subject is to develop necessary skills and abilities to succeed in engineering education. The emphasis is given on knowledge and understanding of the fundamental principles of chemistry and its applications in industry, environment and social context. The course content is based on strengthening the fundamental concepts of chemistry at atomic, electronic and molecular level for all engineering branches. This knowledgebase and its application in various engineering fields can aid in contributing to technological advancement.Some of the topics include atomic and molecular structure, interaction of radiation with matter through spectroscopic techniques, organic reactions and synthesis , stereochemistry, understanding the periodic properties etc.
The department has well equipped chemistry laboratory, departmental library and research laboratory. Two doctoral students have recently submitted their Ph.D. Thesis to RTM., Nagpur University during last academic session.
Applied Chemistry Laboratory is recognized testing centre for petroleum products from Ministry of Petroleum, Government of India. The department also undertakes analysis of water samples and cement, and other engineering materials.
The department has two Associate Professors and five Assistant Professors and majority of them with doctoral degrees. The average experience of most of the faculty members of the departments is more than 15 years.
Faculties of the department are actively engaged in research and other important assignments of the Institute. The areas of specialization and research interest of the faculty members are synthetic organic chemistry, physical, polymer and environmental chemistry. The faculty members have published research papers in the Scopus Indexed journals. One of the faculty members has authored text books on Applied Chemistry for engineering students. Beside this, faculty member have published two patents in the Indian Patent Journal, Govt. of India.
The faculty members contributed in the Institution as member of ‘Admission Committee’, ‘Academic Council’, ‘Board of Studies’ , ‘Member of Local Management Committee’, ‘Officer In-Charge, Training and Placement Cell’, and different ‘Examination Committees’ of the Institute, etc.
