Guest Lecture on “Application of Chemistry in Engineering”
Engineering is what keeps our nation moving and up to date with technology. With every passing second, a new innovation takes place in some or the other part of the world. It is for this reason, simply getting bookish knowledge is not at all sufficient, we constantly need to update ourselves. Keeping the need of hour in mind, the Applied Science Department organized a Guest Lecture on “Application of Chemistry in Engineering” on 12th February, 2015 which was attended by the B.Tech-1st year students.
The Guest Speaker for the session was Dr. Aman Bhalla who is Assistant Professor Department of Chemistry & Centre of Advanced Studies in Chemistry at Punjab University, Chandigarh.
Dr. Aman Bhalla started session by saying, “Chemistry is the essence of our lives and occurs in the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink, everything is a result of chemical processes.” He shared many interesting examples with the students.
