The heart of Chemical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay is excellence in undergraduate and graduate education.


The Department of Chemical Engineering has an extremely dynamic faculty and a well experienced support staff having strong research interests in traditional and emerging areas of Chemical Engineering. The laboratories are equipped with several state-of-the-art facilities which have facilitated the research and consultancy activities of the department. In addition the department provides excellent computational facilities to the faculty and the students at all levels. Over the years the department has fostered a close link with the chemical and allied industries leading to significant resource generation.

The B.Tech program in chemical engineering begins with a foundation in mathematics chemistry and physics. These fundamentals are used to develop the analytical tools of chemical engineering - fluid mechanics chemical thermodynamics and chemical kinetics - in the sophomore and junior years. The units of chemical processes - such as chemical reactors bio-reactors distillation columns and heat exchangers - are analyzed with these tools beginning in the junior year. In the senior year you design chemical processes by integrating process units with regard to economics safety and environmental impact.

 This program will prepare you for professional practice in traditional areas of chemical engineering - chemicals polymers petroleum utilities pharmaceuticals computers and information technology - as well as emerging areas of biotechnology and electronic materials. 

Chemical Engineeringcentral goal is teaching students how to conduct innovative research and communicate the results. Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay students enjoy personal experiences in scholarship and independent inquiry, in which they play an active role in formulating the research to be undertaken, implementing the work, and carrying it to completion.
