Department of Chemical and Polymer Engineering

Brief Profile of the Department

The department of Chemical and Polymer Engineering is one of the new teaching departments/schools included under the XII Five Years Plan sanctioned by UGC. This department started functioning in the month of August 2016. The department is offering a 4-semester M.Tech programme with an intake capacity of 15 students with an objective of providing and promoting teaching, industrial consultancy and R&D in the frontier areas of Chemical and Polymer Engineering practice. The course curriculum has been designed taking into consideration the recent developments in the wide areas of chemical and polymer engineering. The Department aims to meet the growing need for well-qualified chemical engineers who will meet the expanding industry’s requirements in design, manufacturing and marketing segments.
