  •            The Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry was established in 2007. The course is designed to provide trained and skilled man power for ever growing pharmaceutical industries in India. The department offer Ph. D, M. Phil., and M. Sc. programme. The department has three experienced and reputed faculties with international recognition. So far the faculties in the department have produced 2 Ph. Ds and published more than 40 research papers of national and international repute and have two patents to their credit. The faculties in the department visited countries like England, Scotland and Italy for their post doctoral research and research representation. The department strongly encourages M.Sc. students to get actively involved in research activities and help them to get high lucrative scientific job opportunities. The research projects from funding agencies like UGC are being carried out.
