Department of Engineering Chemistry

The Department of chemistry is established in the year 1980, as a Supporting department to all Engineering branches, aims at imparting the knowledge of basic scientific concepts of chemistry to engineering studies. The department has 04 faculty members, 03 faculty members have Ph.D degree and one faculty pursuing his Ph.D. The department is a recognized research centre of VTU, Belgaum. Presently five students are working for their doctoral degree of which one
submitted his thesis. It has developed research expertise in current research domains of Coordination Chemistry, Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry, and Nanotechnology.

Department has more than 30 research publications in reputed peer-reviewed national and international journals with high impact factors. Blend of teaching experience and research expertise of the faculty is an added advantage in training the students.

Program Educational Objectives (PEO’s)

  • To provide standard undergraduate education for students aspiring to pursue the Mechanical Engineering profession to seek a career in a multidisciplinary field.
  • To impart technological advancement through, conferences, workshops, technical talk, and industry-academia interaction.
  • To imbibe knowledge pertaining to social, ethical, and environmental issues in engineering practice.
  • To pursue a problem-solving approach using analytical abilities with effective communication and holistic team spirit.

Program Outcomes (PO’s)

  1. Engineering knowledge:Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Problem analysis:Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
  3. Design/development of solutions:Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Conduct investigations of complex problems:Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  5. Modern tool usage:Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. The engineer and society:Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  7. Environment and sustainability:Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  8. Ethics:Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  9. Individual and team work:Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  10. Communication:Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Project management and finance:Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  12. Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.

Program Specific Outcomes (PSO’S)

  • PSO 1: Employability: Students acquire a technical and managerial skill that makes them an employable graduate.
  • PSO 2: Research: Students acquire the theoretical and practical background of each course that they are capable of applying it for solving real-time (Physical) problems.


  • To train the students to provide basic knowledge and skills in Chemistry for application in engineering and technology.
