The frontiers of chemistry are very large, ranging from one extreme of natural products to those synthesized by man. The enormous strides made by man in the understanding, exploitation of nature and synthesis of new products all have their roots in chemistry and chemical technology. For economic sustenance and technological breakthrough, the undergraduate Programme is designed to encompass an appreciation of the centrality of chemical sciences in the entire undergraduate curricula. It is also planned to arouse entrepreneurial spirits needed for selfemployment and economic emancipation. The specific objectives of the Industrial Chemistry Programme are as follows:

(a) To provide students with a thorough grounding in principles and sound knowledge of scientific methods of the chemical sciences.

(b) Arouse a sense of curiosity and enquiring mind, in order to encourage and develop creative thinking and research aptitudes.

(c ) Generate in students an awareness of the enormous resources in their immediate environment so as to enhance solutions to the challenges of our time in a march towards nation building.

(d) To educate and train chemists, particularly applied chemists, who can think fundamentally about their subject and who can acquire as graduates, a meaningful picture of the chemical industry.

(e) Inculcate in students appropriate skills and abilities to manage and administer technological operations within the field of chemistry and allied areas;

(f) Prepare the students for professional participation in chemical industries. It is intended that graduates of this Programme will be able to adapt themselves to jobs which are problem solving or results oriented in the chemical, petrochemical, biochemical and allied technological fields viz, food, environmental, textiles, polymer etc.
