HOD Message:-Chemicals play indispensable role in our life. Every moment of life demand use of appropriate chemicals for making better living. Fuel like LPG, Diesel, Kerosene, LNG and CNG, Fertilizers, Agrochemicals, Pharmaceutical, Paints, Cements, Plastics, Flavour and Fragrance manufactured by chemical industries are the gift of chemical engineers to the mankind. To manufacture these items and offer allied services, there is great demand for chemical engineering. The institutions offering this course are very less. Out of all engineering seats at national level; less than 0.5 % of seats are for Chemical Engineering Course.

Understanding the scarcity and demand; the course was started in 1998. We believe in overall development of students and it is our philosophy that every student is like diamond, therefore all efforts are directed for polishing them so that there worth will increase and they will glitter everywhere they go.


A department has to its credit many success stories where complete transformation of an ordinary student to successful professional has taken place. Our efforts are very well recognized at State and National level. Chemical department has received so far a grant of around 15 lacs for arranging events, updating facility and networking with industry.

India’s first revolution has been green revolution i.e. in agricultural; at present also India is set for another green revolution which aims for green manufacturing, i.e. production of material in ecofriendly , safe, and sustainable manner and at a cheapest cost.  Chemical engineers will have lion share in this second green revolution. Chemical engineering is the backbone of new frontiers of scientific development i.e. Biotechnology and Nanotechnology.I hereby invite all aspiring stake holder to join chemical engineering and get benefitted by boundless career and growth opportunities and contribute by your knowledge in new frontiers of development mentioned above.  

I wish you good luck and better future prospects.
