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.
