The Department of Applied Chemistry comprises of qualified, trained and dedicated team of faculty and staff members who work in highly encouraging environment. It supports the undergraduate and PhD students in nderstanding chemical aspects of Engineering so that they can be the better engineers for the nation. The faculty of the Department is actively involved in research activity, testing & consultancy. The Departmental research has been supported by Department of Atomic Energy, Board of Nuclear Science, All India Council of Technical Education, Chhattisgarh Council of Science and Technology and CG Medicinal Plant Board. The Department has successfully completed six sponsored project and four are ongoing. Doctoral research is carried out actively in the Department. The major thrust is the area of analytical chemistry, environmental chemistry, surface chemistry, drug and chemical characterization of medicinal plant. Twenty research scholars have already been awarded Ph.D. and presently ten candidates are pursuing their Ph.D. from this Department. The research activities of faculties is in collaboration with International and National Universities .The Department is a recognized consultant of various Bottled Mineral water producing companies, cement and steel industries, Nagar Nigam etc.
Aspire to become hub of excellence in fundamental & applied research and teaching benefiting all stakeholders.
1. To provide a vibrant atmosphere to the undergraduate students to nurture the spirit of scientific inquiry.
2. To prepare doctoral candidates to become independent and creative practitioners of Chemistry.
3. To motivate the faculty to develop knowledge and skill.
4. To develop wide range of research representing interdisciplinary activities.
