Chemical engineering is an important Branch for all Industries. Chemical engineering is the branch of engineering that applies the physical sciences (e.g., chemistry and physics) and/or life sciences (e.g., biology, microbiology and biochemistry) together with mathematics and economics to processes that convert raw materials or chemicals into more useful or valuable Products. In addition, modern chemical engineers are also concerned with pioneering valuable materials and related techniques – which are often essential to related fields such as nanotechnology, fuel cells and biomedical engineering. We can Divide Chemical Engineering in two Types include 1) design, manufacture, and operation of plants and machinery in industrial chemical and related processes 2) development of new or adapted substances for products ranging from foods and beverages to cosmetics to cleaners to pharmaceutical ingredients, among many other products
Head of the Department message
Chemical Engineering fundamentals draw from physics, chemistry, mathematics and increasingly biology, which is combined with engineering art to understand and control molecular and macroscopic processes in these diverse systems. The discipline is expanding and the new science and engineering are helping develop technologies that are more efficient, safer and environmentally friendly. Chemical Engineers have made important contributions to society over the years in terms of products and processes. The breadth and versatility of their training will continue to open many new opportunities for chemical engineers in the future. The Department has a strong core curriculum complemented by electives in the important emerging areas, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Research is an important focus of activity and the Department has an excellent faculty who lead high quality research programmes in a wide spectrum of areas. The Department is provided with very good experimental facilities for research and a strong technical staff.
Our mission is to create and sustain an environment for learning, enquiry and generation of new ideas to aid the education of chemical engineers who will lead the profession, in the development of new technologies and in the service to the industry.

In Chemistry lab, students learn analysis of organic and inorganic chemistry by application of equipment and also manually by using titration method. In lab they also learn to develop product using series of chemicals like preparation of dyes and fine chemicals.
In Fluid Flow lab, students are trained to operate pumps and flow meter and application of pumps and flow meter and concepts of fluid mechanics. This practice can be used in designing and layout of piping network in most Industries and maintenance of fluid handling devices.
