Rationale
Science is the foundation for all technician courses. The basic aim of teaching science is to develop in the students the habit of scientific inquiry, ability to establish the cause and effect, relationship. Chemistry forms the part of applied science .The study of basic concepts of chemistry like chemical bonding, corrosion, water treatment, Organic chemistry and different engineering materials like polymers, adhesives, paints, lubricants, etc. will help the students understanding engineering subjects where the emphasis is laid on the application of these concepts Chemistry is concerned with the changes in structure and properties of matter. Many of the process which are involved to bring out this changes forms the basis of engineering activities. Teaching of chemistry should be aimed at developing the right type of aptitude in the students and the ability to predict the result under given condition Thus good foundation in basic science will help the students in their self development to cope up with continuous flow of innovations.
