7th EFCS and the 4th International Conference, EFCS-2023 during December 19-21, 2023.

Chemistry has been a central subject in the college. The Department of Chemistry was started in the year 1957 and it initiated a Master’s programme in the year 1969. When the University of Calicut was established in 1968, its Department of Chemistry functioned initially from the Farook College campus.
