The Department Of Chemical Technology was the first department set up at Loyola Academy, in the year 1978. The B.Sc Chemical Technology course is affiliated to Osmania University and it was brought under grant-in-aid in 1990. We believe that Chemical Technology is not a subject to be taught but an appreciation to be gained. This happens when the students constantly feel that they are learning what is actually being used in industry.
Some key statistics for the Department of Chemical Technology:
Admissions to the under graduate B.Sc chemical technology course happen through the common Loyola admissions route.
| What makes us different
The Department of Chemical Technology goes far beyond basic course administration. It is important for us that our students have additional academic options beyond the basic course. Here are a few highlights of options that we provide beyond core academics:
Trips to manufacturing units solidify the lessons learnt during classes and give students exposure that can aid them in making good choices for themselves.
Students are encouraged to gain practical experience by undertaking live project work in various chemical industries for one month.
Our students gain inspiration from seminars and guest lectures, which are delivered by eminent personalities and achievers in the chemical industry.
Of course, a key reason you would love the Department is the astounding infrastructure that we provide - tech-savvy classrooms, a multitude of laboratories, and a huge stock of books and journals. Drop by for a visit.
