The Chemistry Department became a part of T K M College of Engineering in the year 1958. It is one of the major supporting departments. Along with the main streams, the relevant study of engineering materials is very essential for the engineering students.

The faculty handles the classes for engineering chemistry for regular BTech degree students of all branches. The Chemistry department supports the chemical engineering department, by engaging classes up to IVth semester.

The department maintains three well equipped laboratories
(i) Virtual and Demonstration lab
(ii) Engineering chemistry lab
(iii) Analytical lab.
Engineering students of all branches avail these laboratory facilities in order to fulfill their BTech degree syllabus.

Prof. Juhaina Ahad published the following text books
(i) Engineering Chemistry for the first year BTech students.
(ii) Engineering Chemistry lab manual for the first year BTech students.
(iii) Organic Chemistry lab manual for Chemical students.

For more details

The department has proved its excellent academic records. As a supporting department, the faculty cooperates in all curricular and extracurricular activities.
