About Department


                                    The science faculty was established in the year June 1981. The department of Chemistry is one of the most important departments. First Chemistry as a special subject was started in the year 1985. Until 1981 there was no other science college within the circumference of 60 km. of Sakri. Science faculty provided a gateway to science for poor, rural, and tribal students.

            To begin with at F.Y.B.Sc. 60 students offered Chemistry as one of the subjects. At  T.Y.B.Sc. The principal subject of Chemistry was started in the year 1985. The dept. started with single Lecturer Shri M. S. Jain. At present, there are 5 Lectures in the department:1. Shri V.G.Yewaleker, 2. Shri D.S.Patil, 3. Shri S.N.Wagh, 4. Shri. K.M.Jawale, 5.

            The principal of our college encouraged research Prof. S. D. Palkhe is working as the Head of the Department of Chemistry since 2016 to till date.


 The main objectives of the curriculum are:-

•           Renewing and updating the curriculum is the essential ingredient of any vibrant university academic system. There ought to be a dynamic curriculum with necessary addition and changes introduced in it from time to by the respective university with a prime objective to maintain an updated curriculum and also providing therein input to take care of fast paced development in the knowledge of the subject concerned.

•           Curriculum must be updated to provide standard education.

It has also been aimed to combine the goals and parameters of global knowledge with pride in the Indian heritage and Indian contribution in this context.

•           Present exercise may be considered timely to meet the demands of the changes in chemical education and societal aspirations in general.

•           A number of avenues have opened up for employment of Chemistry graduates in the industrial sectors.

An effort has been made in the curricula to provide background material for these topics to the students for taking up jobs in this sector.

•           Introduction of eco-friendly and micro-scale experiments in the laboratory with particular emphasis on instrumental methods of analysis. The experiments have been co-ordinatined to a great extent with theory courses for better appreciation.
