Dr. A. Venkateswara Rao
Head of the Department

Dr. Venkateswara Rao Anna is a Chemistry researcher with an expertise in Organic Synthesis and methodology. He is currently working as an Assistant professor at Koneru Lakshmaiah Education Foundation (Deemed to be University). He Completed Doctoral degree from North-Eastern Hill University, Shillong, Meghalaya in the Year 2012. His research focused on the development of new reagents and methods for organic synthesis, with an emphasis on asymmetric catalysis. The achievement of his objectives requires an understanding of stereo selective synthesis, physical, organic chemistry, and metal-based reactivity. He is also expertise in the crystal chemistry of inorganic and mineral oxides including the determination and description of crystal structures, the study of polymorphic transformations, and the synthesis and characterization of new compounds. His scientific contribution can be testified by his research articles. He has been awarded fellowship from UGC-RFSMS during his doctoral studies. Six Scholars awarded PhD’s under his supervision.


Welcome to the Department of Chemistry,

Our department offers a rich variety of opportunities and resources. Since the heart of every department is its students, let’s begin by exploring our M.Sc. and Ph. D programs.

Our M.Sc. program offers an innovative curriculum that provides students with outstanding training for a variety of career paths including careers in the chemical industry, academia, medicine, research, and government, as well as other fields. We offer customized academic planning, advising, and research opportunities for all round development. The latter is especially important; students have the chance to work with faculty on cutting edge problems and gain skills that transfer to professional development, as well as co-author papers with faculty.

Our doctoral degree program provides opportunities to students in a wide array of chemical disciplines including analytical, biological, environmental, inorganic, materials, organic, physical, and theoretical chemistry. Scholars have the freedom to personalize their courses and research projects. Moreover, we encourage scholars to collaborate in several research fields in different labs. Our scholars have many opportunities for professional development, including teaching, communication, networking, outreach, and participation in regional, national, and international meetings. They are also part of departmental committees such as safety, seminars, and climate and diversity. These activities, together with research, make our students competitive for many career paths that include academia, industry, government, and national laboratories, among others.

Our department is doing extremely well with regards to the infrastructure and teaching methods. The teaching staff of my department comprises a group of successful people with Ph. D degrees as well as accomplishments in Research and Teaching.

We have a very favourable faculty-to-student ratio, which encourages close contact between students and their faculty mentors. This allows the faculty to give personalized attention to the academic progress of students. Our courses are designed to provide students the knowledge of Basics & Applied Chemistry, and also introduce them to various experimental skills.

Besides, the department has been constantly revising the contents of the theory and practical (laboratory) syllabi.

We always welcome the bright young minds to join the Chemistry Department as postgraduate or research student. We are also happy in inviting application from highly young talented researchers to sail with us to reach their milestones.

Our aim is to provide an environment in which all who work here can thrive, achieve their potential, and do the very best science. These aims can only be achieved if we treat one another with consideration and respect, and this is what I expect from all members of the department. I do hope that you enjoy your time with us and that you find it a rewarding experience.

Once again, welcome!

Your future in chemistry...Global change is creating enormous challenges relating to human health, energy, and scarce natural resources. These challenges offer excellent future opportunities to people who study chemistry.

"As a teacher it’s important to me that my students enjoy chemistry and science and have the chance to be involved in practical experiments."
