Faculty of Science
Two-year degree course at the undergraduate level commenced from the session 1971-72 with three departments, Zoology, Botany and Chemistry. This course was changed into three-year degree course from the session 1987-88. Each department has well-equipped laboratory from the beginning.
In 1994, the University Grants Commission, New Delhi, gave the clearance to this college to start Industrial Chemistry as vocational subject at the first year degree level. RSM College is one of the two colleges where this vocational subject was started initially throughout the State of Uttar Pradesh. This subject has been thought with regular teaching through faculty of college, guest lecturers, industry experts and others.
Although graduates in Chemistry are being absorbed in several chemical industries as chemists, they are not aware of the overall functioning of the industry, except some basic knowledge of Chemistry. They are given the job training and made eligible to work as chemists. They are normally not able to rise very much in the organisation. On the other hand the graduates with Industrial Chemistry are better suited for the job requirements in the industrial environment. As the course covers almost all the aspects of a chemical industry, the students with the subject are suitable for any department in chemical industry, like production quality control, product development, effluent treatment plant research and development, marketing, etc. Often such students are able to start or employed in village industries based on agricultural raw material or agro-based industries such as insecticides and pesticides. They can be employed by the Government in pollution control agencies and other development agencies. Though most of the graduates with Chemistry of this college have been employed in various sectors, but nearly all the graduates with Industrial chemistry have been employed in the industrial sector like pharmaceuticals, oil and paints, chemical, sugar, etc. Some students have also opted for post graduation from reputed institutions.
Two more subjects - Physics and Mathematics - were started from 1993 at the under graduate level in the self-finance category. In 1998, two sections of Biology group at the under graduate level were started in the evening category have been commenced from 1998 to reduce the pressure of increasing number of students in this region.
