The Department of Chemistry is a full-fledged Department of this University having five Permanent Faculty Members and forty students in each semester. In the Chemistry Department at University of Gour Banga, we seek to explore and to expand the frontiers of modern chemistry. Department of chemistry offers excellent education and strive to provide a completive, yet inspiring and supporting environment for our student, faculty and visitors.The Department has a very strong commitment for obtaining and maintaining state-of-the-art instrumentation facility. Chemistry Department is planning to tie-up with industrial laboratories to get opportunities for the development of new technologies and Academy-industry entrepreneurship. We provide an opportunity for exploring job to our students by inviting various pharmaceutical companies for campus drive program. Presently two DST sponsored research project (Around Rs. 63 lakhs) are going on at the department with two full time research scholars. The Department of Chemistry offers several seminars/special talks throughout each academic year. Speakers from various institute of our Nation visit and give talks in all areas of chemistry and interact with our students. In addition, Department of Chemistry Conducted two days Workshop funded by the three Science Academies of India; namely Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, Indian National Science Academy, New Delhi and The National Academy of Sciences, Allahabad, entitled ''Advances in Chemistry Education and Research'' on 23th & 24th July 2015 at the Department of Chemistry, University of Gour Banga, Malda where more than 150 faculty members/researcher/students have participated from various institutes. Department of chemistry also conducted National Symposium in Chemical Science held on March 2016, funded by University of Gour Banga, Malda.

The PG Department of Computer Science started its academic journey in 2011 with 20 students. There are two assistant professors in the department: Ms. Debasmita Saha and Mr. Debaditya Barman. Ms. Debasmita Saha is the present Head of the department. Department managed to set up one project lab and one programming language practice lab. Students are working on Data Mining, Natural Language Processing, Image Processing and Android app development projects. The department organizes students' seminar in each semester to enhance their domain of knowledge and build up their communication skills. Department is working hard to enhance the quality of education and encourage local students to join this technical stream.

The Department of Mathematics, University of Gour Banga currently has five Faculty members. The Department provides two Academic Programs: M.Sc. and Ph.D. The intake of the M. Sc. Course is 75 students per year. The students are admitted to M.Sc. course purely on merit basis. The Department starts conducting Course Work for Ph.D. students under the new regulations of U.G.C. Teaching load is fairly good, typically a Faculty member teaches three or four courses simultaneously, and possibly two Labs in a year. The Faculty members combine their commitment to research with a devotion to teaching. Our Faculty members are committed to mentoring and working closely with students, emphasizing the development of critical thinking and problem solving skills as part of broader disciplinary and interdisciplinary proficiencies. We pride ourselves on providing students with the opportunity to engage in hands-on educational experiences through participation in faculty-led seminars/projects and apply academic concepts, strategies, and techniques to serious Mathematical problems. Some of our Faculty members have recently achieved prestigious and highly selective Research Fellowships, and all are committed to offering the best possible teaching in the fascinating field of Mathematics. The Faculty members are nationally and internationally known in their fields for their scholarly work. Faculty research interest spans a wide range: from abstract theory of Mathematics to applicable problems of immediate interest to industry. Current areas of research can be broadly classified into the following categories: Differential Geometry, Fluid Dynamics and General Topology. The faculty interacts with several national and international bodies, research centers and Universities in the capacity of organizers, external experts, editors, referees and reviewers for research journals in Mathematics in addition to participating and lecturing in conferences.

The post graduate Department of Physics of the University of Gour Banga started its journey since January, 2012, with three faculty members and twenty students under a two-year-four-semester process. The faculty members have furnished the whole PG course and have built up general physics laboratory, electronics laboratory, optics laboratory, general computer laboratory and special computer laboratory which are running satisfactorily. Besides, arrangement of more experimental setup is under progress to run the laboratories in full swing. The department arranges guest faculties affiliated to renowned universities for extended lectures on some of the topics.

The Department of Zoology of this University was running with three faculty members, Dr. Shyamapada Mandal, Dr. Kaushik Chakraborty and Mr. Subhrajyoti Roy, until a new faculty Dr Anjali Rawani joined on March, 2016. The development and establishment of the Department, with its all mechanisms, is progressive and a plan wise, with a view to establish outstanding academic vibes at all the levels: teaching as well as research. This Department is equipped with some modern instruments for PG, M Phil and Ph D studies. The Department has organized three seminars (two University level and one National level) funded by the University of Gour Banga, Malda, in the current session. One journal Biological and Biomedical Science Bulletin of the Department has been published, already with its second volume (proof stage). The work for admission into Ph. D (Science) research in the Department of Zoology as well as for registration in the same has been done for the very first batch. The M. Phil (Zoology) course has also been started with seven students in the first batch. One very important and emerging key feature of the PG Zoology study is to perform experimental project works with their study in special papers: Entomology, Immunology and Microbiology, some of the outcome of which have already been published in scientific journals of repute.
