Rasatantra e-Magazine

‘Rasatantra’ is an ideal medium for the faculty members to share their ideas, information and current developments in their research fields of interests related to chemical science. Articles shedding lights on the chemistry behind our quotidian life practices and processes will also have place along with the popular chemical science articles, stories about chemists and their discoveries and innovations. Quiz- type articles related to the particular fields of chemical science are also entertained. ‘Rasatantra’ is also a great forum for young science writers to shape their writing skills, work with an editorial team, build up confidence and grow their portfolios.

The branch of chemistry is an ocean, for ever advancing with new discoveries and inventions. Every day we can see new developments in chemistry so much so that it is difficult to keep pace with the development through curriculum. We hope to use this magazine as a tool to create a better environment for chemistry learning and understanding as well as to bridge the gap between the textbook chemistry and chemistry of life.

Alumni Speaks

I completed my bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham. I consider myself fortunate to be a part of one of the best departments in the institution. Our teachers not only guided us through the subject but also gave us an opportunity to develop our other extracurricular talents as well as laid a strong foundation on the intricacies of life.

We were also being provided with a well-equipped lab with almost all the facilities needed by UG and PG students in this subject. In short, the department has played an immense role in enriching my knowledge about the subject as well as nourishing in me all the qualities needed to be a good professional in the field of chemistry.

I am very delighted and feel proud to say that I did my masters from the Department of Chemistry, Amrita School of Arts and Science, Amritapuri. The department is topped up with highly eminent and well-qualified faculty. Each of them is not only expertise in their discipline but also is very approachable. They encourage each student to get engaged in active learning. The research ambience at the department is very welcoming and it motivates the students to be active researchers at a very early stage of masters itself.

There are many activities including various mini projects which encourage the students to explore their chosen discipline. Also one such highlight is that one entire semester is devoted to project where the student can explore their area of interest in various national institutes like IIT, IISER, NIIST etc. I did my project from IIT-Bombay which I believe is one of the good turning point in my research career and it would not have been possible without the exposure , knowledge and support I got from the department. The syllabus of the course is so well modulated that it prepares the student to qualify various national level exams like- CSIR, NET, GATE.
