From the HOD's Desk:

Department of Engineering Chemistry at DSCE was established in the year 1979 as a supportive department for first year BE course and second year Chemical Engineering course. It is one of the oldest department which includes a VTU research center. The department constitutes highly experienced faculty who have been serving for years. Six faculty members hold doctorates from reputed Universities across India and some of them have post-doctoral research experience in abroad. Five faculties are pursuing research in multi-disciplinary areas. Several research proposals have been sent to funding agencies like DST, CSIR and VGST. The Chemistry division actively focuses its research activities on material science, synthetic organic chemistry, bio-inorganic chemistry, electrochemistry, batteries, catalysis, polymer nano-composites and lubricants. The department holds many publications in peer-reviewed international journals with high impact factor. Our department provides outstanding teaching combined with many opportunities to become involved and excel in academics and research.
