Department Of Chemical Engineering

Undergraduate

The dynamics of research and process industry require professionals who can upgrade the present manufacturing processes, develop and design alternative technologies. The department is launching Masters (MS) and doctorate of philosophy (PhD) in Chemical Engineering. The graduate program in Chemical Engineering is especially designed to provide excellent opportunities to the students who will be seeking for higher studies.

The strength of the graduate program in Chemical Engineering has diversity that covers all major aspects of chemical engineering like designing, process dynamics & synthesizing, energy sector and materials production. The program is designed with the aim to provide in-depth knowledge of Chemical Engineering to enhance analytical skills and research capabilities of the graduates. It is a unique opportunity to learn latest and advanced technologies to resolve interdisciplinary complex engineering problems.

Graduates of the Chemical Engineering at GIK institute are expected to be able to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for a promising professional to identify, formulate, innovative design and solve bottlenecks utilizing critical-thinking and problem-solving abilities.

DCME Mission

The mission of the department of chemical engineering is to develop and disseminate the understanding of designing and operations of chemical processes so that our graduates can excel in academia, research, business and industry.[KIS1]

Thrust Areas

The graduate program in Chemical Engineering consists of lectures and hands-on research training emphasizing underlying principles and their engineering applications. A number of core and elective courses are offered as per the graduate approved degree plan leading them to earn a Masters (MS) or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in their respective fields of specialization.

The Graduate Programs can be pursued in one of the following research areas but not limited to these as student can opt the research area as per his/her interest and supervisor advice:

(i)                 Process & equipment design

(ii)               Fluid handling and thermodynamic behavior

(iii)             Reaction engineering

(iv)             Transport processes

(v)               Modeling and simulation
