RGPV Engg Chemistry Syllabus BT 101 BTech | New Scheme Based On AICTE Flexible Curricula

As we know that the Rajiv Gandhi Proudhyogiki Vishwavidyalaya, Bhopal i.e. RGPV is the biggest government technical University in the MP and it is only 1 government technical University in this state. The RGPV University present in the syamala Hills , Bhopal and all official work done only in the campus. It has many affiliated colleges which obey the all rules and regulations of that university.

                    In the current session RGPV launches new courses of those students who are taking admission under the RGPV University Credit Based Grading System (CBGS) and after the completion of that course student will get B. Tech degree from the RGPV University. 
               Here we Give the details of 1st year syllabus; please not it very carefully. and it is common for all branches like IT,EC,EE, EX,IP,IEM,CM,BT,BM, CS, EI / IC, CE, ME, FT, TX, AU,
MI, & AT (Information Technology, Electronics, electrical engineering, instrumentation, Bio medical, Mechanical, Fire technology, Textiles, Computer Science, Chemical Engineering Branches) .We are also advised to you please refer the official website of RGPV; of RGPV; i.e. for more clarification.

Engg Chemistry Course Outcomes
The concepts developed in this course will aid in quantification of several concepts in chemistry that have been introduced at the 10+2 levels in schools. Technology is being increasingly based on the electronic, atomic and molecular level modifications.
Quantum theory is more than 100 years old and to understand phenomena at nanometer levels, one has to base the description of all chemical processes at molecular levels. The course will enable the student to:
•          Analyse microscopic chemistry in terms of atomic and molecular orbitals and intermolecular forces.
•          Rationalise bulk properties and processes using thermodynamic considerations.
•          Distinguish the ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum used for exciting different molecular
energy levels in various spectroscopic techniques
•          Rationalise periodic properties such as ionization potential, electronegativity, oxidation states and electronegativity.
•          List major chemical reactions that are used in the synthesis of molecules.
