Programme Outcome (POs):

Chemistry plays a pivotal role for understanding the natural world from any perspective and also imparts the understanding of substances, their inter conversions and the making of materials for the benefit of humans. Chemistry utilizes the natural substances and creates artificial ones. This applied science is being explored to understand the behavior of living organisms and to develop new drug molecules for alleviating the complex diseases in diversified manner.

The undergraduate B.Sc. (Honours and General) programme in Chemistry enables the students:

PO-1: To understand the fundamental chemical theories and their applications.

PO-2: To become familiar with the different branches of Chemistry like

Organic, Inorganic, Physical, Analytical, Environmental, Industrial,

Biochemistry etc.

PO-3: To acquire critical thinking skill, analytical skill, problem solving skill and

data analysis skill.

PO-4: To develop the ability to design, synthesize, separate and characterize

the compounds.

PO-5: To understand the cause of environmental pollution like air pollution,

water pollution, soil pollution etc in molecular level.

PO-6: To understand the role of Chemistry to combat differential environmental

pollution issues and how to develop sustainable world.

PO-7: To inculcate planning and exploration of scientific ideas and research

oriented skill among the students.

PO-8: To explore the knowledge how computer may be useful in solving

chemical problems.

PO-9: To make the students efficient enough to work in chemical industry and

scientific laboratories in time bound manner.

PO-10: To develop scientific temperament, motivation an desire for applying

knowledge of chemical science for the welfare of the society
