MSc Chemistry (Research)

This intensive research project provides 'hands-on' training in methods and techniques of scientific research. The MSc Chemistry (Research) program is perfect for scholars who want to begin a research career. Students develop a systematic approach to devising experiments and/or computations and gain familiarity with a broad range of synthetic, analytical and spectroscopic techniques, acquiring skills for the critical analysis of their experimental and computational observations. 

Shoolini has state-of-the-art infrastructure, including more than 100 well-equipped labs, cutting-edge curriculum and an award-winning library.

MSc Chemistry (Research) at Shoolini University is NAAC B+ accredited and has UGC certification.

Most of the faculty is postdoc/leading scientists in their field. The chemistry department at Shoolini University regularly writes high quality research publications. Students often become co-authors of these publications. Our well-versed Scientific Writing Cell also supports their publications.

Apart from joining leading organisations, the students also pursue research or become PHD scholars. Many faculty members have received grants from national and international funding agencies. Some of our students have also received a JRF of Rs 30,000 per month and Rs 20,000-25,000 per month.
