The students who engage themselves in project work, seminars and have periodic visits at various research institutes.

Core curriculum :
It offers a well-planned and balanced curriculum to enable students to cope up with the latest knowledge and rigorous industrial trends.

Electives :
Along with inter-disciplinary core courses, the department offers some specialized courses that include Petroleum Refining Engineering, Fertilizer Technology, Hazard and safety analysis, design catalytic reactors, advanced Separation technique, high polymer technology, Surface coating And technology, oil technology, Biochemical Engineering.

Laboratories :
The department has many laboratories that are fully-equipped and well maintained. These laboratories not only enhance the practical skills, but also strengthen the theoretical concepts. The various laboratories in the department include:

  • Fluid mechanics and particle laboratory
  • Heat transfer lab
  • Mass transfer laboratory having computerized distilling column
  • Chemical reaction engineering laboratory having plug flow reactor
  • CSTR along with Batch Reactor
  • Process instrumentation lab with experiments on proportional controller, PI controller, PID controller etc.
  • CAD laboratory

For project reports, seminar works or for knowledge of latest developments, the students continuously visit CDRI, CMAP and CSIR. Every year a good percentage of students employed in reputed companies and pursue higher studies. With hard and proper guidance of faculty members, the students make their way to IISC, IITs and BARC.

In short these dynamic engineers, by their sheer labour and work to win attitude can stabilize the chequered markets and also can turn the stumbling blocks into the stepping stones to success.
