YEAR OF ESTABLISHMENT: 1964
The historical background of the inception of the science departments in B. Borooah College cannot be realized in isolation of the growth of this college. The college originally began with the Arts stream, as it utilized the campus of a school. However, with its own campus being established in 1962 provided the much needed boost to start the much needed boost. The science stream started functioning in 1964 and so also the Chemistry Dept. but with no full time lecturer. However, shortly afterwards Dr. (Mrs.) T. Thakuria joined as the head of the department. Renowned educationists Mr. K.K Bora and Mr. M. C. Bhuyan, who were both lecturers of the prestigious Cotton College gave their valuable services in the incubation period. Though the department was meandering its way ahead, the teachers at the helm at that time were clamouring for academic elevation and so started the honours course in 1974. From then onwards, began the real journey of this department. It is a journey of terrains but at the same time one of pride.
The department took another significant step under the stewardship of the then head Dr. (Mrs.) T. Thakuria as it started the P. G. course in 1993. The introduction of the P.G. department, which is self-sustaining, was a bold initiative as it entailed lot of perseverance and sacrifice. The P.G section was a result of a desire to go for higher studies coupled with a statistical assessment that many graduates of this region were unable to go for higher studies merely because of lack of adequate number of seats. The alumni of our P.G section have affirmed this contention to be true as majority of them are occupying positions commensurate with their degree.
The department envisages to adopt a realistic approach while going for its goals. We are aware of our infrastructural limitation and so propose to achieve our objectives in a phased manner.
