Dear Students & Parents,

Welcome to the exciting world of Chemical Engineering!

Chemical Engineers are at the forefront of technology and their role in modern society is becoming increasingly important. Chemical engineers have been improving our well-being for more than a century. From the development of smaller, faster computer chips to innovations in recycling, treating disease, cleaning water, and generating energy.

At MIT-WPU, challenges are opportunities for chemical engineers who are best prepared with problem solving skills to tackle the challenges for a better and sustainable world. We are committed to providing innovative and high-quality opportunities for our students to obtain the fundamental knowledge, skills and qualities necessary for entry and success in a professional career, backed by latest tools and technology

Our B. Tech Programme is based on the three cardinal principles: (i) providing social context to education, (ii) giving maximum choice to the student to choose a career path and (iii) encouraging active learning. The Chemical Engineering department has excellent infrastructural facilities for training students in this interdisciplinary program. The students are trained by qualified, experienced and competent faculty, in an atmosphere which is highly conducive for Teaching-Learning process. The students are given practical hands on training of latest software used by Industries such as ASPEN PLUS, HYSYS, HTRI, COMSOL MULTIPHYSICS, and MATLAB etc. The Department has strong links with industry with interactions spanning consultancy, sponsored research and continuing education.

Because of this well designed and unique approach the students are fully equipped to take responsibilities across Chemical and allied Industries. We lay special emphasis on the development of overall personality and character of students through a series of workshops, interactions and curricular activities. This helps in developing winning personalities capable of facing future challenges of the Industry. The budding chemical engineers are developed as a special resource of trained and quality manpower for Chemical process industry and Hydrocarbon sector.

I wish Chemical Engineering students pleasant and successful four years with MIT-WPU Chemical Engineering Department.

B.Tech (Chemical Engineering)

Chemical engineers have been improving our well-being for more than a century. From the development of smaller, faster computer chips to innovations in recycling, treating disease, cleaning water, and generating energy.

Chemical engineers work in manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, design and construction, pulp and paper, petrochemicals, food processing, specialty chemicals, microelectronics, electronic and advanced materials, polymers, business services, biotechnology, environmental health and safety industries, among others. B.Tech graduates can also work in government sector or choose to work in defence establishment, atomic power plant, and power conservation projects, recycling department or healthcare related projects. (DRDO, ISRO, NTPC etc), or in research fields in laboratories. (NCL, ISRO, etc) or get involved in IPR and knowledge management industry.

For higher studies, our students often pursue their MS, MBA, M.Tech or PhD from India and abroad.
