The Department of Chemical Engineering started in 1969 with BTech program in Chemical Engineering. Our department offers MTech since 2009 and Ph.D program in Chemical Engineering since 2000. The BTech program builds on the core elements of heat, mass and momentum 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 facilities high quality teaching, project and research guidance to students with great care.

We are very proud to announce that last year (2019) we celebrated our Golden Jubilee year of establishment of Chemical Engineering Department.
