Applied Sciences (Chemistry)

About Department

Department of Applied Chemistry was started in1984.The department offers a course in applied Chemistry for BE undergraduate students. In addition to this it offers a course in Environmental science at undergraduate level. Our mission is to generate human resource in the form of engineers with sound base of chemical & environmental sciences for high professional competence and sustainable development. Department imparts education to 1000 plus BE students every year.

              The faculty consists of Eleven highly qualified and experienced faculty members. Six of them are Ph.D. The department has One Professors, Two Associate Professor and Eight Assistant professors. The faculty has published number of papers in reputed journals, national and international conferences, written books, have copyrights and developed educational material like DTEL, question banks etc. The faculty expertise includes the areas like lignin and synthetic chemistry, complexes, catalysis, Environmental Science and Thermodynamics. Two faculty members are recognized research guides. Four research scholars are awarded Ph.D by RTMNU under their guidance.

The department has two spacious laboratories spread over the area of about 285.56 sq m. The laboratories are adequately equipped with relevant instruments to give firsthand experience to the students. The students are provided a comprehensive practical exposure to the various instrumental techniques required for the analysis, testing and research.
            
Syllabus provides an integrated and unified approach to BE first year students towards chemical sciences, covering all branches of chemistry, including advance materials and its application to engineering field.

The teaching learning activities are balanced with a number of other related activities, which include co-curricular activities, Special lectures on varied topics of academic relevance, motivational lectures, FDP, community development programs, blood donation camps, poster competition, presentations by students etc.

Vision of the Department To be a well-recognized center with strong foundational focus on basic sciences and humanities to develop budding professionals.
Mission of the Department To develop scientific temperament and mathematical aptitude for solving inter-disciplinary engineering problems with excellent communication skills and social values in a vibrant environment.
Program Outcomes (PO)
    Engineering Graduates will be able to:
  • Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.

  • Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety,  and the cultural,  societal, and environmental considerations.
  • Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  • Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  • The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  • Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in   societal and environmental contexts, and  demonstrate  the  knowledge  of,  and  need  for sustainable development.
  • Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  • Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  • Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  • Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  • Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
Awareness about Outcome based education system

The Washington Accord is an international accreditation agreement for professional engineering academic degrees, between the bodies responsible for accreditation amongst the countries who have signed it (signatories). Established in 1989, India is one of the signatories among 44 countries. Graduates of accredited programs in any of the countries who have signed the agreement are recognized by the other signatory countries as having met the academic requirements for entry to the practice of engineering. The Washington Accord covers UG engineering degrees under Outcome based approach. It means that the engineering knowledge that one gain by completing engineering programme (degree) must not be theoretical but it must be practically useful. To have a measure of this Outcome based education the apex body for engineering education in India, AICTE, has floated 12 Programme Outcomes (POs) and it is expected that the course outcome (called as COs) for every programme must be designed to meet these outcomes. When a student gets his Engineering degree all the POs must have been achieved by him step by step. Every subject in every programme has its own CO s.

Assessment of POs in Chemistry
The complete syllabus is mapped with its expected course outcome is also linked with the PO expected. This matrix is attached with this information. The assessment to see if the expected outcome is achieved or not by every student is done based on the marks that he gets in MSE I, MSE II, ESE & TA for theory and also for practical. A certain cut-off (other than decided by Examination committee for passing) is decided by the Department faculty depending on the difficulty level of the question papers. If the student has failed to cross that cut off, then teacher helps him to understand the concepts and assesses him through additional assignments, guest lectures and other efforts. The level of attainment is decided by the performance of the student.
