DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY

  • Chemistry is a very old branch of Science studied several hundred years ago as shown by its applications in making metals, glass and salts etc.
  • Chemistry has made unique contribution towards progress of civilization and has played an active role in solving many problems confronted by mankind.
  • In today's society chemistry is prominently involved in the world of engineering. The branches of Engineering like Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics, Environmental and all other engineering fields the makeup of substances is always a key factor which must be known. All engineering fields have unique bonds with the chemistry world.
  • The subject Engineering Chemistry creates foundation for understanding basic concepts of chemistry and its effects on Engineering Materials.
  • Engineering Chemistry also impart knowledge on properties of materials, protecting them from corrosion and selecting right types of Materials used in various fields of Engineering and Industry.
  • The department of chemistry has well qualified, experienced and enthusiastic faculty to teach Engineering Chemistry and motivate students to achieve grand success in VTU examinations.

Engineering Chemistry Lab

  • The department has well equipped Engineering Chemistry laboratory of 1700 Sq. Ft area.
  • The experiments conducting under Engineering Chemistry Lab like determination of hardness, alkalinity and COD of water can be applied for industrial applications like water treatment.
  • Similarly, the experiments like determination of calcium oxide in cement, copper in brass and iron in haematite help the students to understand various principles and techniques in metallurgy.
  • Usage of modern instruments like pH meter, Potentiometer, Colorimeter, Conductometer, etc improve the ability of students to handle and understand the instrumentation aspects.
  • Overall, Engineering Chemistry Lab aims to improve the creativity of students by correlating theory and practical aspects of Chemistry.
