The MSc (Chemistry) programme is designed and developed by experts spread across the country and is pitched at a level at par with any central University. It provides a strong foundation of fundamental and advanced aspects of chemistry and their applications in industry and research. It addresses the desire and demand of many students of the BSc/BSc (Hons. / Major) in Chemistry looking for job prospects in teaching / research / industry and R&D labs. In addition, the programme would also help many in-service people to upgrade their qualifications for mobility in their career. This includes thousands of the TGTs in the Schools spread across the country, who can improve their qualifications by earning a credible master’s degree in chemistry and become eligible for the post of a PGT.
                                                                                           
The broad objectives of the programme are as under:
·          Provide an opportunity for higher education in Chemistry.
·          Provide an opportunity to the learners to upgrade their qualifications.
·          Provide the opportunities to the learner in building / upgrading their careers in teaching / research and industry.
