The department of Chemistry is one of the oldest department of City College. It was established in the year 1884. Since its inception, this department has grown into a modern and innovative one.
Traditionally the department has all ways had a scholarly faculty. It has a set of highly motivated teachers, some of whom are involved in post graduate teaching as guest lecturers at various universities. Some faculty members have experiences of being associated with advance research projects in India & abroad. A few of our faculty members are actively engaged in popularizing science.
Apart from the trivial "Chalk & Talk" method, we also strongly feel that the practice of learner-centric method should be of additional benefit. We already have held seminars with the established ex-students of the deptt. as speakers as well as "students seminars" where the 2nd yr. & 3rd yr. Hons. students present short papers. We run a wall magazine, where the students are the major contributors of articles.
The Deptt. runs a seminar Library for its Hons. (B.Sc.) students. There are about 300 books in this library. Teachers of our deptt. are members of different learned societies and find regular access of the National & International Journals. We look forward to subscribe to a few journals from this seminar Library for the benefit of the students.
Our Labs are well-equipped to run Honours and general courses.
The department takes pride in grooming a large number of students who have been placed at various prestigious academic & industrial institutes in India & abroad.
