We have the following programs:

  • Summer and Winter Workshops
  • Invited Talks
  • Corporate and Academic Training
  • School Students’ Visit
  • Department and University Tours

Purpose of our Outreach


The Department of Chemistry at the Pondicherry University is continually developing its outreach program to fulfill the following aims:

  • To encourage students from all backgrounds to consider higher education by providing them with information and experiences that help them make informed decisions about their future.
  • To encourage students to study chemistry, through delivering exciting and engaging workshops and by developing their understanding of the careers available in chemistry.
  • To support the teaching of chemistry in schools by providing access to undergraduate level equipment and teaching staff for students, and CPD and resources for teachers.
  • To support and train Q&A, R&D personals for chemical and pharmaceutical industries to kick start their work immediately after they join industries.
