Scope of the subject

Chemistry is the 'Game of a single electron'. Chemistry plays a key role in solving scientific, economic, environmental and societal problems, which are connected with the basic question how to guarantee the sustainability of our planet. It tends to focus on the properties of substance and the interactions between different types of matter. In more formal terms chemistry is the study of matter and the changes it can undergo. So understanding the basic properties of matter and learning how to predict and explain how they change, when they react to form new substances is what chemistry and chemists are all about. Chemistry is not limited to beakers and laboratories. Increasing our knowledge in chemistry is essential if we want to improve our daily lifestyle. Chemistry is a job oriented course. Chemistry is a significant component in all emerging industries based on energy, medicine, biotechnology, textile, cement, metallurgy, nanotechnology, agrochemicals and materials and techniques for National defence research programs.

  • EC certifications are incorporated in the curriculum itself and are mandatory)
  • Opportunity to earn Degree with Specialization
  • Opportunities of internships for industry experience
  • Well established Forensic Laboratory

B.Sc. (Hons.) in Forensic science helps to develop the analytical skills necessary to process and evaluate evidence in a criminal investigation.The programme focuses more upon developing the investigative perspective of the student and promoting their ideas and insights by engaging the learner in research and project activities which would be more of a practical exposure. The newly designed curriculum as per upgraded education policy, gives learner an opportunity to work upon scientific methodologies of investigation. At the end of this course, they will be able to find themselves as a competent student to understand the science of investigation. A strong base and versatility is always valued and thus, the syllabus of Forensic science has been designed in correlation with the syllabus of NTA NET examination in order to make the students competent enough to qualify the exam and ensure excellent academic record.

Forensic Science is a multi-disciplinary subject which encompasses various fields of science such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Psychology, Social Science, Engineering and Law. Forensic science serves as a scientific testimony for the investigation of criminal and civil case sand convictions. During this programme, the student also learns about basic to advanced forensic science, Crime Scene Investigation, Fingerprint Examination, Questioned Documents Examination, Visit to forensic labs and other departments and much more! ! The various discipline electives in the form of tracks that are offered in the curriculum give student an opportunity to choose among them as per his/her choice wherein the student is able to learn those respective subjects at little bit advanced level. Also, if the student chooses all the subjects of the same track the student is able to earn the degree with that particular specialization such as advanced forensic medicine, advanced forensic toxicology, ECC, advanced forensic psychology and forensic biotechnology etc.

B.Sc. Forensic science study develops the skills to understand Criminal Psychology as well as effective implementation of Laws for a safe society. Thus, the program offers both theoretical and practical knowledge in every area of criminalistics and also provides an understanding of investigative science, ability to deal with the evidences, ability to process the crime scene, understanding of justice system and a strong academic base for future career prospects.
