Chemistry Honurs (UG) course deals with the study of chemical changes of matter. It focuses on chemical transformations, recognisation at both macro and microscopic levels. It provides an excellent opportunity to students and learners to explore the chemical universe around us and to understand the logic and principles behind fascinating changes taking place at all levels in the molecular world. The subject demands a sharp analytical mind and a certain amount of curiosity from the learners’ part. The course is divided into three main sections namely : Physical, Inorganic and Organic Chemistry, but eight papers altogether. Almost 40% of the course comprises practical classes where the students get the opportunity to verify chemical principles learned in the classroom through hands–on experiments. The key concepts discussed are : Physical Chemistry, Thermodynamics, Statistical Thermodynamics, Chemical Kinetics, Kinetic Theory of Gases, Quantum Mechanics, Electrochemistry, Phase Rules, Spectroscopy, and Photochemistry; Inorganic Chemistry : Chemical Bonding and Periodicity, Elemental Chemistry, Complex Chemistry, Redox Chemistry, Crystal Field Theory, Bioinorganic Chemistry, Organometallics; Organic Chemistry : Bonding in Organic Molecules, Organic Reactions and their Mechanisms, Stereochemistry, Functional Group Chemistry, Organic Synthesis, Heterocyclic Chemistry Organic Spectroscopy. There are ample opportunities of higher studies after completion of this course and the job prospect is also excellent.
Faculty Detail :
PO 1- Enhancement of Knowledge leading to Gain a Fascination about the Topic- The basic objective of the programme is at first to enhance the knowledge on some topics in chemistry those the students have already read superficially in their 10+2 level. This also triggers them to be more interested in the topics.
PO 2- Ignition of Motivation – Several courses have been included in the syllabus those aim to motivate the students for facing the acid tests in their future career.
PO 3- Brushing of Analytical Thinking – The course curricula continuously hone a student’s analytical power of thinking that becomes quite beneficial to solve a battery of questions included in the exercise of a particular chapter in the books they go through.
PO 4- Opportunity to Develop Skill in Technical Field – The curricula also provide a platform to a student to receive an exposure about clinical bio-chemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry, pesticide chemistry etc. That obviously serves as rehearsal programme for the future job market
Program Specific Outcome:
PSO 1- Understanding of Chemistry – The programme specifically moulds a student to thoroughly understand the chemistry and its related arena.
PSO 2- To choose a special paper in post graduate level – After being enlightened to organic, inorganic, physical, analytical papers the students comparatively more interested in a specific Honours paper opt the paper as the special one in their post graduate curricula.
PSO 3- Research – The students are expected to acquire ABC knowledge about the current day scenario of the research outcome which is apparent from a part “DISSERTATION” in Semester-6.
PSO 4- Enhancement of Skill– The syllabus includes the skill enhancement courses in Semesters- 3 & 4 after completing which the students develop their skills in a specific field in the job market.
CO 1- A thorough understanding of the chemical topics those students had already been being exposed since school levels.
CO 2- To foster a sound knowledge on laboratory chemicals, equipments etc. among the students and to expertise them how to handle the hazardous chemicals.
CO 3- To train a student a market ready if he or she does not pursue for the post graduate degree.
