AICTE TRAINING AND LEARNING (ATAL) ACADEMY SPONSORED FDP ON “RECENT ADVANCEMENTS IN SUSTAINABLE ENERGY STORAGE AND CONVERSION” 25th – 29 th Oct 2021 Organized by Department of Chemical Engineering, MIT, Manipal – 576104 Department of Chemical Engineering - MIT | Manipal Academy of Higher Education


The Department of Chemical Engineering started in 1969 with BTech program in Chemical Engineering. Our department offers MTech since 2010 and Ph.D program in Chemical Engineering since 2000. The BTech program builds on the core elements of  momentum, heat and mass transfer, thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, transport processes, control process, with a hands on experience in state of the art laboratories. Various electives and minor specialization in petroleum engineering and pollution control engineering, prepare students for industries or higher studies. The MTech course emphasis on the advanced courses with main focus on research project. This provides an excellent platform to prepare the next generation research scholars. The Ph.D program indeed offers inter and multidisciplinary research to address socio-economic and industrial problems. Our high student-faculty ratio facilitates high quality teaching, project and research guidance to students with great care. 

We are very proud to announce that, on 2019 we had celebrated our Golden Jubilee year of establishment of Chemical Engineering Department. Here is the link to the souvenir : Golden Jubilee Souvenir
