Career Prospects

Department of Chemistry established in 2015 and is situated at the first floor of the JIS University. Chemistry is increasingly becoming interdisciplinary and occupying its position at the focal point of various fundamental scientific queries due to its diversity. Department of Chemistry at JIS University provides high level quality teaching along with state of art research to cultivate curious and inventive scholars such that they become competent enough to face the challenges from academic as well as from industry. Department currently offers B.Sc.(H), M.Sc., Integrated M.Sc.–Ph.D. and Ph.D. in Chemistry. In the undergraduate level we have introduced “Choice Based Credit System”(CBCS) as per the UGC mandate. The diverse qualifications of the faculty members ensure expertise in all aspect of chemistry as well as in various interdisciplinary areas. Department ensures academic flexibility and good deal of faculty-student interaction. Project work and seminar presentation are introduced in all courses to get an overview of the ongoing research and recent development in the subject.
