The department of Chemical Engineering started in 1996 with just thirty students in B. Tech. with the objectives of making competent and dynamic Chemical Engineers, suitable for global market by imparting best possible training and education. Over the years the intake was increased to 60 and the department became NBA accredited in the year 2004, which was renewed again in 2007 & 2017. The department also started a 2 yr. Post Graduate program in 2006 and offers M. Tech. in Chemical Engineering degree with the aim to further enhance the research activity and Industry-Institute interaction. Through research and consultancy the department serves the local industries to solve their technical problems, with the help of well-equipped laboratories and qualified and dedicated faculty members. The students are also provided counselling and special training on GATE / GRE by the faculty members. Since its inception, the department has been continuously conducting different training course, seminar, conference etc. for the benefit of industry and academia.
