Department of Chemical Engineering
The Department of Chemical Engineering was established in the year 1993 to offer undergraduate program, B.Tech. Chemical Engineering. Since then the department has gained recognition and prominence as the most sought option for admission into Undergraduate Program in Chemical Engineering. The department has well versed laboratories give learning a practical dimension and highly energetic and enthusiastic staff with academic and research pursuit. The department is accredited by National Board of Accreditation (NBA), New Delhi from the year 2004 onwards.
The graduated chemical engineers have many career options to choose – like placement in MNCs, industry, teaching, research or an admission into PG courses like M.Tech, M.S or MBA in India or countries like USA, U.K, Germany and Australia. In addition to traditional careers in the chemical, energy and oil industries, chemical engineers enjoy increasing opportunities in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, electronic device fabrication and environmental engineering. A few of our graduates turn as entrepreneurs. The department continues to upgrade chemical engineering syllabus structure, experiments and infrastructure to keep abreast with latest developments in chemical engineering and allied fields.
The department received grants from central institutions for modernizing the laboratories. Apart from regular class work, the students regularly update and develop through various co-curricular activities organized in the department like seminars, conferences, workshops, industrial visits, summer internship training and invited talks by eminent personality like successful alumni, scientists and industrialists. National level conference and workshops are organized in association with student chapters of Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers (IIChE), Institution of Engineers IE(I) and Indian Society for Technical Education (ISTE) every year to enrich the knowledge of students beyond curriculum.
The department has evolved significantly over the last three decades, reflecting changes in the Indian chemical industry and the chemical engineering profession worldwide.
