Objectives

The Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech.) program offered by School of Chemical Engineering provides deeper understanding of a number of discipline-linked engineering science courses, core courses and elective courses to which students are introduced in the curriculum, theoretical and experimental solution of real world problems, and design of systems relevant to the contemporary industries. The areas introduced include Transport Phenomena, Process Dynamics and Control, Chemical Reaction Engineering, Process Modelling and Simulation, and Equipment Design and Optimization. Besides the theoretical and laboratory based curriculum, students complete a minimum of two projects in the final year of the program.
This degree provides a solid foundation for the core and allied chemical engineering discipline, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Through the academic program students also develop excellent written and oral communication skills, learn to work as a team and project management.
