About Program

M.Sc. Chemistry with Specialization in Forensic Analytical Chemistry was started in the year of 2014 with the aim to apply analytical chemistry in field or inside the laboratory newly developed methods, in order to resolve complex criminal cases. Object of the analysis is the crime evidence, which in turn can be a biological sample or a seized material. Quite often, only small quantities of sample are available, in which the analyte is present at trace level. In this scenario, a continuous expansion of the forensic chemistry is highly needed, not only in terms of more sophisticated analytical methods, but also in terms of advancement of multivariate statistical and chemometric tools. Only a proper combination of analysis and processing of results can, indeed, assist the interpretation of the findings and support the crime solving in real situations.

Various ways of study were lined together with gas chromatography (GC), mass spectrometry (MS), high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), thin layer chromatography (TLC) an etc. Analytical chemistry is a science that addresses the quantitative or qualitative composition of unknown samples. Though oftentimes neglected, the character of the sample and use of the analytical chemical data plays a crucial role in choosing and execution the suitable qualitative analysis technique.

This program helps analytical chemists to use their knowledge of chemistry, instrumentation, computers, and statistics to solve problems in almost all areas of chemistry and for all kinds of industries. For example, their measurements are used to assure the safety and quality of food, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and water; to assure compliance with environmental and other regulations; to support the legal process; to help physicians diagnose diseases; and to provide measurements and documentation essential to trade and commerce.

The Scope for Analytical Chemist Such as Quality control, Production officer, Drug formulation and development, chemical or forensic analysis, Process development etc.

University has placement cell, which is actively engaged in the placement for the student studies in the M.Sc. Chemistry with specialization in forensic analytical chemistry. Institute focuses on the practical and industrial approach so that student can get the edge in the interview against others. After completion of the course students can work as Research Scientist, Research analyst, Research officer, Lab technologist, Quality control chemist, Chemist, Quality assurance, Quality manager, Laboratory assistant, Operations manager, Quality control inspector, Research Manager etc. in the Pharmaceutical Companies, Chemical Industries, Dye and food industries, Forensic Laboratories, Public testing laboratories, Research Centres, etc. After the course few students are going for the higher studies.

As per the previous placement, students are working in various companies like Zydus Cadila Healthcare Ltd, Lambda Therapeutic Research Ltd., Veeda Clinical Research, Apotex Research Pvt Ltd, Vedanta Ltd., Cadila Pharmaceuticals, Adilac Pharma, Manglam drugs, Food Research Laboratory, etc.
