About the Department

The Department of Applied Science has 15 faculty members with expertise in diverse areas of Chemistry, Mathmatics and Physics. The department typically has more than 150 students pursuing thier under graduate programme. The three year B.Sc Applied science programme offered by department, since 1971, well-reputed and is designed to expose students to all important branches of Science.

About the Programme

The B.Sc. Applied Science Programme which is currently a Government aided programme, commenced in the year 1971 and PSG College of Technology is the pioneer in running this programme. It has a unique structure in the sense that it gives the students a broad based science background. They may however specialize in one of the basic sciences namely Physics, Chemistry or Mathematics with adequate computer programming skills. This helps to prepare the students for any analytically oriented profession, while at the same time enabling them to take up post-graduate studies in physical, mathematical and computational sciences. Subsequently they could pursue research in the leading institutions and national R & D laboratories. Besides the regular theory and laboratory subjects, students are offered elective subjects in emerging areas of study. They are also exposed to engineering practices and research methodologies by means of a project that has to be completed in the final semester. This would enable them to engage in life-long learning and thereby make them versatile practitioners or researchers in their chosen fields.

Scope for placement and higher studies

The curriculum and syllabi are updated once in three years to reflect the latest advancements in the field of Science, Engineering and Technology. This helps our students to get placed in reputed core industries such as Kenna Metals, Indian Molasses Company, Titan, MRF and software companies such as Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS), WIPRO etc.

A sizeable group of students aspire to do their post-graduation in Physics, Chemistry or Mathematics in reputed Institutions such as IITs, IISc, NITs, and Central Universities; Management or Computer Application programmes in Institutions such as IIMs, reputed B-Schools, Engineering Institutions and Universities by successfully clearing the appropriate entrance examinations. In addition to this, our students are eligible to do PG programmes in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Materials Science, Applied Physics, Medical Physics, Applied Chemistry and Applied Mathematics.


A pass in Higher Secondary examination of the (10+2) curriculum prescribed by the appropriate authority of the Government of Tamil Nadu with Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry as the subjects of study or any other exam recognized as equivalent.

Based on ranking, as per the aggregate percentage of marks obtained in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry of the plus two examinations, the students will be selected for admission and will be intimated through applicants' registered e-mail.

B.Sc. AS (2008-2011)

Applied science gave me wide range of options. Fresh from board exams, I was vague regarding choosing a career. However applied science provided me the platform to discover my interests and strengths. The idea to apply physics to various branches of science fascinated me. This prompted me to pursue marine geophysics and explore deep oceans.

B.Sc. AS (2016-2019)

Applied Science is one of a kind of experience which no other three year programme can offer. Personally, I feel that it's all about the overall knowledge we gain from learning the modules, it may be a bit intensive to manage between different fields in the beginning but once you get into the system you will get a well organized learning environment which is going to help you in the future to plan and balance your career.
