M. Sc. (2-Year)


The two-year M.Sc. programme lays equal emphasis on Organic, Inorganic and Physical Chemistry. The programme lasting four semesters comprises 3 courses each in Organic, Inorganic, Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, 2 laboratory courses each in Organic, Inorganic and Physical Chemistry and elective courses. Some of the unique features of the programme are the core courses in Instrumentation and Computer Applications, Mathematics for Chemists, Materials Chemistry, Biological Chemistry, seminar course, elective courses and project work in the final semester. 

Admission 

Minimum qualification: B.Sc. with a minimum of 60% marks in the aggregate of Science subjects with Chemistry as one of the subjects, preferably in combination with Physics and Mathematics. 
 
Selection: Based on a written test conducted at various examination centers all over the country. The written test consists of objective type questions. Candidates are expected to have a sound knowledge of B.Sc. level general chemistry and basic mathematics. The paper consists of multiple choice questions and wrong answers carry negative marks.
