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 programs characterize the department. Faculty members are available as academic advisers and hold office hours for 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 B.Sc. Chemistry (Honours), and Ph.D. programs. Our undergraduate program 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 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 close 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, Ph.D. program and the presence of post-doctoral research associates ensures a stimulating scientific atmosphere supported by modern research instruments that are accessible to undergraduates.
