In short, Chemistry is intensely concerned with nature which involves food, water, energy and health care. Nevertheless, with the basic knowledge of Chemistry, a person can understand the world better. Therefore, an advanced course in chemistry will be an attractive experience in understanding our nature and solving the problems of humankind. The programme has been planned to inculcate the aspiring candidates so as to afford widespread exposure on various aspects of Chemistry by preparing the students with state-of-the-art scientific resources.
Appropriateness of programme to be conducted in distance learning mode to acquire skills and competence:
The ODL programme is a custom-made programme particularly designed for the employees of chemistry related sectors as it is more economic and simultaneously done while continuing their full-time employment. In addition, their skills and capability in this particular field could be enhanced without disturbing their work schedule. The Programme could be considered appropriate to be conducted in ODL mode.
