  • To be a world-renowned centre of excellence in chemistry, research, and education, recognised for our contributions to fundamental discoveries, transformative applications, and interdisciplinary collaborations. We aspire to foster a culture of intellectual curiosity, creativity, and diversity that inspires our faculty, staff, and students to push the boundaries of chemical knowledge and make a positive impact on society.


  • To provide students with a unique opportunity to specialise in a minor of their choice while pursuing a major in our three-year degree programme. In alignment with the New Education Policy (NEP), we also offer the option of a fourth year, which enables students to pursue higher education in international universities.
  • Throughout the programme, our students will have the chance to work alongside our esteemed faculty members, gaining invaluable experience in tackling cutting-edge problems within their respective fields. Additionally, students will have access to state-of-the-art research equipment, providing them with a hands-on approach to learning.

Chemistry; The Central Science

Chemistry is often called the “CENTRAL SCIENCE” as it plays a pivotal role in all aspects of physical and biological sciences, including engineering, agriculture, medicine, and allied health disciplines. The Department of Chemistry, SRM-AP is composed of dynamic faculties across diverse areas creating and spreading new knowledge at the forefront. Excellent teaching, close faculty-student relationships, and competitive research programmes characterize the department. Faculty members are available as academic advisers and hold office hours for a consultation about their courses; willing to discuss chemistry, science and career opportunities. In many cases, faculty, post-doctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate students collaboratively pursue interdisciplinary research within the department.

The Department of Chemistry, SRM AP offers four years of BSc, MSc and PhD programmes. Our undergraduate programme has been designed to provide a basic foundation in general areas of inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry, plus many more specialized courses. These courses include material, analytical, nuclear, biophysical chemistry and chemical biology, which provide undergraduate students with a rigorous, high-quality education and exceptional research opportunities in a challenging and nurturing environment. More importantly, rather than providing formal lecture and laboratory courses, highlighted is the intellectual environment provided by the department. Additionally, our undergraduate students are benefited from access to this classroom expertise and will have opportunities to work closely with faculty and student researchers who are on the leading edge of chemistry research. Undergraduate Research will frequently result in journal publications and/or presentations at scientific meetings. Moreover, the PhD programme and the presence of post-doctoral research associates ensure a stimulating scientific atmosphere supported by modern research instruments that are accessible to undergraduates.
