The M.Sc Chemistry Program

The M.Sc Chemistry Program

The M.Sc program is a 2-year, four semester, full time, campus based program. The program is structured to enable the students to improve their intellectual and laboratory skills. The program emphasizes the development for industrial applications and to pursue academic research.

Program Structure:

The M.Sc program consists of 22 courses covered in four semesters spread over two years. Students are also required to undergo Dissertation / Project in second year.
For graduates who wish to specialize in a particular area of science, the University offers Master of Science program in three subjects with specialization in respective fields.

M.Sc in Chemistry with specialization in Organic, Inorganic and Physical Chemistry

M.Sc in Physics with specialization in Laser Physics and Semiconductor Electronics.

M.Sc in Mathematics with specialization in Special functions and Fluid Dynamics.

Total Credits: 90 each


M.Sc Chemistry: Pass in B.Sc Med/Non Med, with minimum 50% aggregate marks.

M.Sc Physics: Pass in B.Sc (Non Med), with minimum 50% aggregate marks.

M.Sc Mathematics: Pass in B.Sc (Non Med), B.A with mathematics, with minimum 50% aggregate marks.

Final year graduate students awaiting results are also eligible to apply.
