The Department of Chemistry was established in the year 1968 under the visionary leadership of Prof. Thiru. Venkata Subbiah, the Principal of our college. He began the course under the able guidance of the faculty member, Prof. Thiru H.Harirama Subramaniam with the full-fledged support of our founder chairman Thiru. S.D. Pandiya Nadar. The Department was constructed with an area of 260 sq. m which comprises a well-equipped laboratory for UG Major Students. The course was initially with two faculty members and later on the strength of the department became six based on the strength of major as well as allied Chemistry students.

The Department of Chemistry creates a stimulating environment for the academic growth of its students. The faculty members are known for their expertise in the subject and they impact their students not just by class room teaching on the subjects but also through laboratory experiments, seminars and field trips.


The main objective of the Department is not only to promote chemistry among students but also to provide the right kind of work ethics, professional expertise and leadership in all spheres of life.
