Department of Polymer Science & Technology

 

Year of Establishment of the Department:   1985

 

A Brief history of Department:

                Anantapur is one of the districts which is suitable for starting polymer industries which require only minimum amount of water and electricity.   Keeping this objective  in view, the course viz., M.Sc., in polymer science was started in 1981 with the help of some staff members in the Departments of Chemistry and Physics.  In 1985, a separate department of Polymer Science was established.
