The Chemistry program offered by the Birla Institute of Technology and Science is a four-year program with provision for a dual degree extending to five years total duration. The input to the M.Sc. (Hons.) is through the entrance test (BITSAT) with the minimum qualification being a pass in the 10+2 system with at least 80% marks in Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. There are about 30 students admitted every year for the M.Sc. (Hons.) program. The academic curriculum for this program is revised constantly and is comparable to any international institution. At the end of the program the students gain industrial experience if they opt for the Practice School (PS) program. Optionally, students may choose to work on an academic thesis of 4-5 months duration.
Ph.D. admissions are based on written exam followed by interview at Hyderabad campus. Currently there are a number of full time research scholars pursuing research in different areas of Chemistry leading to Ph. D. degree. The Ph.D. students are provided fellowships from the sponsored project grants as well as BITS institute support.
The department is actively engaged in research in the areas of synthetic organic chemistry, environmental analytical chemistry, polymers, bioinorganic/inorganic chemistry, nanomaterials and computational chemistry. Emphasis on undergraduate research is also given in terms of the lab oriented and study oriented projects. Funded projects from DST, CSIR, UGC and BITS are in progress and the faculty members publish and present their work in leading peer reviewed journals and conferences.
