The Department of Chemical Engineering at IIT Bombay was started in 1958, with assistance from the Soviet Union under a UNESCO aid scheme. It was initially organized on the basis of specializations with distinct laboratories and academic programmes: Unit Operations (Heat transfer, Mass transfer and Fluid mechanics), Automation in Chemical Industries, Processes (Inorganic and Organic) and Technologies (Fuel, Silicate, Cellulose and Electrochemical). Over time, the Department has evolved into a more homogeneous entity, with an emphasis on Chemical Engineering fundamentals. The general academic programme reflects this evolution; however, specialization in particular technologies is possible by research projects and through streamed electives.
Chemical Engineering at IIT Bombay is today recognized as a leading department in India primarily because of its strong academic programme, large faculty strength and diverse range of research areas. The academic programmes of the Department are the B.Tech. (60 students/year, duration 4 years), the M.Tech (40 students/year, duration 1.5 years), 5 year Dual Degree (15 students/year) and Ph.D. programme (8 students/year). Several faculty members of the Department also actively participate in teaching and research activities of various interdisciplinary programmes of the Institute.
The Department has built up good experimental and computational facilities, through funding from the Ministry of Human Resources Development, and research projects from Government Agencies and Industry. The Department has good interaction with Industry and provides service by way of consultancy projects and continuing education courses in many of areas.

Chemical Engineering, in essence, concerns the economic design and operation of chemical plants. Today, chemical plants encompass a considerable range. For example, computer chip manufacturing units, engineered micro-organisms for pharmaceuticals, engineered ecosystems for environment upgradation and drug delivery systems are some of the "new" chemical plants which coexist with the "traditional" chemical plants for manufacture of basic chemicals, petroleum, polymers, pharmaceuticals, cement, fertilizer and processed foods. 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 Chemical Engineering Department at I.I.T. Bombay is committed to excellence in Chemical Engineering education in the context of the evolving discipline. 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. The Department has strong links with industry with interactions spanning consultancy, sponsored research and continuing education. The alumni are important stakeholders and have provided generous support in different ways.
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.
