ABOUT The Department


The Department of Chemistry, St. Edmund's College was formally opened in 1937 following the establishment of the college in the year 1923. The Department at present has six regular Faculty and one part time teacher in the college post. Out of them, five are Associate Professors and one Assistant Professor, all in the UGC post. Besides, there are two laboratory attendants.

To begin with, the Chemistry department was started in 1937 under the headship of Prof. B.B.Roy. The department later started BSc. Hons course in the year 1959 under the headship of Prof. S.C.Guha. Initially there was one laboratory which has expanded into three separated laboratories in the new set-up. Over the time, it has grown into a full-fledged department with a present strength of students about hundred including B Sc. first, second and third year students. From a meagre beginning, we have now procured many up- to-date instruments as well as chemicals to support in the pursuance of practical classes by the students. The department is now in a position to even support small scale research projects and in fact we have introduced projects for the third year students as a part of curriculum which are running successfully for the past five years. The department has in the past organised various National Seminars , National Symposium, Workshops, Exhibition, Guest Lectures etc.

The Department has got sanction from UGC to run career oriented course- Advanced Analytical Chemistry for its final year students. It has also launched its own Departmental Magazine entitled "The Chemist Mind" in the year 2011.
