SGGSWU Departments Department of Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry was formed in this newly established Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University, which started its first academic session in July, 2011. This department has been established to foster chemistry education and research, in order to meet the growing need of qualified and efficient individuals in the country and across the globe.

At present, the Department of Chemistry provides the opportunity for postgraduate (M.Sc.) and undergraduate (B.Sc. Hons.) students to obtain a thorough fundamental knowledge of all fields of Chemistry. There are lecture courses in the general and broader areas of chemistry for students. Laboratory experience is provided in inorganic and organic synthesis, and physical chemical measurements. The equipment and techniques desirable to the post-graduate and undergraduate students are available in chemistry labs.

More important than the formal lecture and laboratory courses is the intellectual environment provided by the department. The department is growing steadily with strong commitment for teaching and research. The University has started Ph.D. program from July, 2013.
