       Participation in Institutional Social Responsibility (ISR) and Extension Activities

  • The students and teachers of the department actively participate in the regular and special camping programme of the college .
  • Science club actively functioning under the guidance of the department wihSmt. Thushara R. as the Convenor.
  • A debate was organised in connection with World AIDS Day
  • A Science News Letter of scientific events were published weekly in the notice board by members of science club.
  • A three day science exhibition named ‘SASTRAYAN’ was organised in our college in association withRUSA. Students were actively participatedin this exhibition .They had made still models,working models,charts and posters. Also science related videos were shown in smart class room under the guidance of Sri. Sudheer B
  • To evoke the curiosity on science – on chemistry – interesting experiments in chemistry- a lab class for nearby school students.
  • Faculties are engaged in the setting of Question Papers ofautonomous colleges
  • Collaboration with prestigious institutes/organisations like NIIST, HLL, CUSAT and NIT Calicut for academic project works.

 Students gets opportunities to immerse in research through their project work 

Our  post graduates have gone on to other institutes as part of  their project work, gets a wide opportunity to familiarize the  current trends and development in the areas

By Our output based teaching  students are highly prepared for professional and graduate programs with a foundation in the fundamental principles that professional schools desire. Our graduates have gone on to further studies at various places

……unique training in research using both theoretical and experimental methods

..Our chemistry post-graduates have been successful in obtaining science-related jobs

Consultancy services in related areas


· Inadequate lab space

·Lack of availability of most modern laboratory equipment which is necessary for post-graduate experiments

·Absence of safety regulations especially regarding handling and disposal of chemical wastes…

· Heavy work load for faculties  is a limiting  factor to develop their research capabilities

·Lack of regular and competent training programme to faculties


Future Plans

  • Upgradation of the department as Research Centre
  • Undertaking Major Research Projects
  • Consultancy services in related areas
  • arranging a well equipped latex analyzing unit and to develop more utility polymers
  • Organising seminars and workshops in new areas of Polymer Chemistry
  • Conversion of all classrooms into smart classrooms with all ICT facilities
  • Full  automation of library along with INFLIBNET facility
  • Equipping the library with  books, journals and modern information resources
  • Modernisation of Laboratory from wet to dry concept using computational softwares
