1.  Faculty Development Program

The Department of Chemistry, conducted Faculty Development Program (FDP) on RECENT ADVANCES IN MATERIAL SCIENCE from  09th  – 13th  January 2017 in association   with The Electrochemical Society of India and the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru. The programme was inaugurated by Prof. E. S. Dwarakadasa, President, ECSI, IISc., followed by a keynote address. Faculties from various colleges attended the programme. We received an overwhelming response.

The Faculty Development Program was designed to explore the implications of Material Science with an objective to encourage young minds to enhance their research abilities by providing an opportunity to meet experts in the field. The Resource Persons for this programme were from IISc., RRI, Centre for Nano and Soft Matter Sciences, SABIC and other reputed Industries. The programme covered, Polymer Composites, Metal Finishing for Engineers, Organic Solar Cells, Nanocomposites, Conducting Polymer, Energy Storage and Conversion Devices, Trace Element Contamination of the Environment E-Waste Recycling  –  Best  Option  for  Resource  Conservation & Environmental Protection and Ecofriendly Pretreatment. On the whole, the programme was successful.
