Dr. V Udayakumar
Professor and Head
The Department offers courses in chemistry to students of engineering disciplines at I to IV semester levels, both in theory and practical. Department has well established 04 research laboratories for pursuing research on Materials Science, Catalysis, Sensor and Peptide Chemistry. The Department is recognized as a research center by VTU for offering Ph.D. Programme.
Faculty members of the Department executing various funded research projects like DST Nanomission, DST-SERB, ISRO RESPOND, BRNS, DAE, VGST, etc. The research work of the faculty members has been highlighted in 'Nature Publishing Group-Asia Materials (Nature India). The Department has well equipped sophisticated instrument facilities like XRD, FTIR, UV-Vis, Photoluminescence studies, HPLC, Electrochemical Work station, AAS, Rota evaporator, Photoreactor and others.
To promote the applied chemistry knowledge and success of our students through excellence in teaching, guiding and counselling.
Short Range Goals
  • To provide the students the applied chemistry knowledge and exposure in laboratory work using analytical instruments.
  • To take up collaborative research projects in the applied field - polymers and catalysis between the groups in the Central Power Research Institute, Bangalore and Bangalore Institute of Technology, Bangalore.
  • To take up consultancy and testing.
  • To have more interdisciplinary interaction in teaching and research work.
Long Range Goals
  • To assist SIT to scale new heights in the technical field by becoming a premier technological institute in the country and to acquire deemed university status through excellence in teaching, guiding and counseling the students.
  • To encourage the faculty to acquire Ph.D. degree and to motivate them to take research as an integral part of their professional duties.
