M.Sc. Environmental Chemistry
Profile of the Department:
This course provides a unique focus for addressing some of today’s most pressing environmental and chemical problems. The study of environment commenced in 1978 by scientists who were not trained as environmentalist but experts in allied fields. This course provides major challenges in determining nature, quantity and various reactions of specific pollutants in the environment. This leading M. Sc. Course delivers a core course, which provides interdisciplinary training in the following fields.
Instrumental methods of chemical and pharmaceutical analysis Pharmacokinetics of pollutants ad their fate in the environment
Monitoring of various environmental problems Environmental impact assessment (EIA) and Toxicology
Monitoring of different pollutants in the environment Environmental Laws and ISO 14000
Control and treatment of different kinds of effluents Atmospheric and Pesticide Chemistry
This course is providing first hand exposure of the highly sophisticated instruments like HPLC, GC, FT-IR, CVS, AAS, ASV etc to the students for timely and accurate analysis and to meet the growing global environmental problems being faced in the 21st century. This course is an exciting field which combines knowledge and expertise of many streams viz. analytical instrumentation, computers, electronics, biology, sociology, law and of course management and chemistry. Students are encouraged to take the lead in creating environmental awareness. The mission of this course is to provide students with the modern and comprehensive chemical education required to live and work in technologically advanced society. Our students are trained to hold key environmental positions in industry, commerce, consultancy, education and public services. This mission is fulfilled through a range of educational opportunities that allow students to learn, discover and explore the major chemical concepts that contribute to their lives and the lives of others around the world. The course, deploying both, internal staff and environmental practitioners, provides a comprehensive post-graduate training in the fundamental and applied aspects of the origin, behaviour and fate of chemical species in aquatic, atmosphere, terrestrial and biotic environmental media. The course is intended for students proficient in undergraduate chemistry who wish to specialize in environmental chemistry and apply their chemical education to the principles and practice of environmental and industrial control.
Placement Opportunities
Students of this course have got placement in R & D of pharmaceutical laboratories, in air, water and soil pollution laboratories, environmental monitoring and assessment, academic research, private consultancy, various pollution control boards, waste treatment in chemically related jobs in teaching or sales. Many students have pursued advance degree at leading university across the globe in the areas of environmental chemistry, chemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry etc. Also many students are actively working in bioanalytical studies in various pharmaceutical industries and contract research organizations (CROs).

M.Sc. in Instrumentation and Commercial Methods of Industrial Analysis (MICA)
This course provides a broad base of scientific knowledge while learning chemical and instrumental analysis methods and systemization technologies. The present course has been designed to generate and channelize potential of manpower especially for quality control and R & D divisions of chemical industries. The present course made systematic effort to train students who are going to look after the quality of products and to fulfill long felt need of quality, which is the most important component of any industry. The mission of this course is to educate graduate students to pursue postgraduate degree at one of the nation’s best university for employment in industry, government, or academia with doctoral students learning how to function as independent researcher. The present Post-graduate course (MICA) offers excellent opportunities for career advancement and students can look forward for being absorbed in private / public sector / autonomous organizations.
Placement Opportunities
After completing two year Post Graduate course in Instrumentation and Commercial Methods of Industrial Analysis, most of the students got placement through campus in various quality assurance laboratories, pollution control laboratories, effluent treatment plants of various industries, R & D laboratories, Thermal Power Corporation, ONGC, Industries manufacturing paper, dyes, drug, glass, pharmaceuticals, ceramics, cement, polymer, food and food products, alloys, fertilizer, pesticides, soaps, detergents, paint, varnishes, enamels, fine chemicals etc. The students of the course are imparted three months practical training at the end of 4th semester, in some industries/institutes and are required to submit project report after training. This course has distinction of 100% placement.
