History of Dept:-
The department of Chemistry of Bijoy Krishna Girls’ College, Howrah was set up in the year of 1966. In all these years it is now regarded as the one of the most preferred college for the students who want to pursue their graduation in Chemistry.
2. Departmental Infrastructure:-
The department has three well-equipped laboratories and one store room for chemicals. The laboratories have various useful and necessary modern scientific instruments such as spectrophotometer, weighing balance, pH meter, conductometer, potentiometer, colorimeter etc. One classroom is equipped with LCD projector connected with internet. There is a seminar library in the department with different valuable books for students and teachers. The department also provides wifi facility for the staff as well as for the students.
3. Future Plan:-
A) Development of the Instrument Laboratory: For running physical chemistry practical classes more effectively. We have planned purchase and installation of digital polarimeters and other instruments for this purpose.
B) Motivating all faculty staff to run sponsored research projects despite severe limitation of space.
C) Extend CAI (Computer Aided Instruction) to our students. Our experiments to teach with the help of molecular graphics and animations have proved promising; the obvious requirement is access to a speedy network. It is expected that this will be available to us within the next one or two years.
Explore placement opportunity of our students in fine chemical and pharmaceutical houses who have professional link with us.
