Postgraduate Program

The Department of Chemical Engineering offers two Postgraduate Programs – M. Tech. in Chemical Engineering and M.Tech. in Process Control.

M.Tech in Chemical Engineering

The program spans for a period of four semesters and has an annual intake of 20. The intake to this course is based on the score obtained in the GATE exam conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of science (IISc) and seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) on behalf of the National Coordination Board – GATE, Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). Foreign nationals are also admitted to this programme through schemes like ICCR. Education and research are closely integrated within this Master’s program, which helps to stay aware of the latest developments in the field of chemical engineering.

The students are exposed to core and advanced areas of Chemical Engineering in  the first two semesters consisting of a well structured palette of core subjects like Advanced Reaction Engineering, Steady State Process Simulation, Chemical Process Modeling and  Chemical Process Synthesis . A wide range of electives like Process Intensification, Membrane Separation Processes, Multiphase Flow, etc., are also offered in this course, which provides an opportunity to explore the branch in a desired perspective. As part of the curriculum, students get hands on experience of software packages like Aspen Engineering Suite, Ansys Fluent & CFX, Matlab, Comsol and gProms. Students devote their entire second year for the Master’s dissertation Project.

M.Tech in Process Control

The program spans for a period of four semesters and has an annual intake of 20. The intake to this course is based on the score obtained in the GATE exam. This course is an interdisciplinary program admitting students with different backgrounds such as Instrumentation & Control Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, etc…Education and research are closely integrated within this Master’s program, which helps to stay aware of the latest developments in the field of Process Control.

The students are exposed to core and advanced areas of Process Control in the first two semesters consisting of a well-structured palette of core subjects. A wide range of electives are also offered in this course, which provides an opportunity to explore the branch in a desired perspective. As a part of the curriculum, students get hands on experience on software package MATLAB. Students devote their entire second year for the Master’s dissertation Project. The department is equipped with good Process Control Laboratory with different experimental set ups for understanding process control concepts.
