School of Chemical Engineering (SCHEME)

The School of Chemical Engineering offers B.Tech. in Chemical Engineering to the candidates selected through VITEEE (VIT Entrance Examination). The Programme imparts fundamentals of Chemical Engineering while simultaneously developing problem-solving capabilities through its multi-disciplinary curriculum. School of Chemical Engineering at VIT University has been keen on its growth by incorporating the seeds of core Chemical Engineering principles in the young minds, from innovating, designing, optimizing, economizing to troubleshooting of myriads of industrial processes and research.  Students have to accomplish a Bachelor Thesis Project in their last year of the programme. The course structure provides an optimal mix of core and elective courses. Chemical Engineers do it all to make the world easier, safer and comfortable for the human civilization to prosper.

Chemical engineering is a branch of engineering that essentially deals with the engineering of chemicals to identify and solve technical glitches. Chemical engineering is concerned with processes that convert raw materials or chemicals into useful valuable forms.

A chemical engineers' career is wide-ranging from biotechnology and aerospace to biomedical and petroleum industries. Today, chemical engineering is becoming a highly profitable branch of engineering with a huge scope for growth in India as well as abroad. The following are some of the career opportunities for Chemical Engineers not restricted to the list.

  • Analytical chemist.
  • Energy manager.
  • Environmental engineer.
  • Manufacturing engineer.
  • Materials engineer.
  • Mining engineer.
  • Production manager.
  • Quality manager.
