Chemical Engineering

The Department of Chemical Engineering was started in the year 2011 with 55 undergraduate students in the B.E. Chemical Engineering programme and has been doing its best to bring about excellence in academics for last 5 years. The PG Programme of M.E. in Chemical Engineering was started in year 2015. The current sanctioned strength of the B.E. Chemical Engineering Program and M.E. Chemical Engineering Program is 60 and 18 respectively for full time courses. The Department is well equipped with good undergraduate laboratories and research laboratories.The department has well qualified faculty from foreign Universities, IITs, NITs and reputed State universities. There are many R&D projects on going from different industries like BEIL, ETL and Shivalik. Students as well as faculty members of the Department are involved in that.

To make the student industry ready several initiatives have been taken in due time like regular industrial visits in every semester right from the beginning. Industry individuals of repute are invited to deliver lecture on their expertise. Peer learning initiatives are implemented among students where in senior students teach their peers or juniors. Through 5S implementation they learn the discipline and organization of a work place. Department runs special courses on MATLAB for in house students. The faculty of the Department runs Performance Acceleartion in Chemical Engineering program in Zydus Cadilla, ankleshwar. AMIIChE program is coordinated by the Department. Department of Chemical Engineering has got formal research and academic collaboration with NCL Pune and NEERI. There are different refresher courses conducted by Chemical Engineering department. The placement of Chemical Engineering students was 80% for 2011 entry batch.
