The Department of Chemical Technology at Loyola was set up in 1978 and offers B.Sc Chemical Technology.
"We make sure the programs offered by the department are current, and even prescient. We have complete autonomy to keep evolving our programs, and we use it fully."- B. Lalitha Kumari
Head of the Department
The Department Of Chemical Technology was the first department set up at Loyola Academy, in the year 1978. The B.Sc Chemical Technology course is affiliated to Osmania University and it was brought under grant-in-aid in 1990. We believe that Chemical Technology is not a subject to be taught but an appreciation to be gained. This happens when the students constantly feel that they are learning what is actually being used in industry.
Some key statistics for the Department of Chemical Technology:
We offer 1 under graduate course of 3 years
Hand-picked for their innovative minds
Dedicated to supporting students in every way
Most of whom are innovators in their field

Admissions to the under graduate B.Sc chemical technology course happen through the common Loyola admissions route.
The Department of Chemical Technology goes far beyond basic course administration. It is important for us that our students have additional academic options beyond the basic course. Here are a few highlights of options that we provide beyond core academics:
Trips to manufacturing units solidify the lessons learnt during classes and give students exposure that can aid them in making good choices for themselves. We take students to different Chemical & Pharmaceutical Industries as a part of their curriculum. This helps the students to know the various unit operations and unit processes involved in the chemical industries.
Students are encouraged to gain practical experience by undertaking live project work in various chemical industries with the duration of 30 days in the month of May after completing second year.
Our students gain inspiration from guest lectures, which are delivered by eminent personalities and achievers from reputed universities like Osmania University, JNTU, CBIT, BVRIT etc., a prestigious R&D, IICT and production engineers from different chemical industries.
Department of chemical technology conducts seminars every year for which the eminent speakers were called from chemical and pharmaceutical industries, IICT and reputed universities. The topics of seminar includes the latest trends in chemical technology, which helps the students to know the ongoing research in the different fields of chemical technology.
Loyola Academy's Jesuit Education is focused on the integral development of the students through the "Community-Care". As a part of this, our B.Sc. Chemical Technology department has planned to serve the neighborhood through "Lab to School Programme". In this programme our students demonstrate the various physics and chemistry experiments to the students of near by Zilla Parishad High Schools. This helps the Government School students in better understanding of the basic concepts of science.
Of course, a key reason you would love the Department is the astounding infrastructure that we provide - tech-savvy classrooms, a multitude of laboratories, and a huge stock of books and journals. Drop by for a visit.
Excellent students and excellent teachers are a sound recipe for excellent output; the department and its people routinely stand out for their accomplishments. Here are some notable achievements:
Chemical Technology is started as Loyola Academy’s first course, with a status of associated degree
The course is then upgraded to B. Sc. in Chemical Technology
The department becomes affiliated to Osmania University and is brought under grant-in-aid
Students volunteer at MNJ Cancer Hospital, Lakdikapul, as part of the Academy’s Planet Program
We organized an exhibition at Government Zilla Parishad High School, Shamirpet, where our students demonstrated various concepts of Physics and Chemistry through practical experiments
The department of Chemical Technology has organized a one day Seminar on "Emerging Trends in Chemical Technology" on 31 January 2018.
