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.
Admission details (http://www.jee.iitb.ac.in/)
Admission to the first year of the Undergraduate Programmes leading to the degrees of B.Tech., Five-year Dual Degree Programmes and 5-year Integrated M.Tech. and M.Sc. Programmes is made through the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) which is common for all the six Indian Institutes of Technology (Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur and Madras), Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad and the Institute of Technology, BHU, Varanasi.
The minimum academic qualification for admission through JEE is a pass in the final examination of 10+2 system or its equivalent, referred to as the Qualifying Examination. In case the relevant qualifying examination is not a public examination, the candidate must have passed at least one public (Board / University) examination at an earlier level. Those appearing in 10+2 final or equivalent examination may also appear in JEE (Screening Test and Main Examination) for consideration of provisional admission.
The list of qualifying examinations is given below:
* The +2 level examination in the 10+2 pattern of examination of any recognised Central / State Board of Secondary Examination, including Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi, and Council for Indian School Certificate Examination, New Delhi.
* Intermediate Science or Two-year Pre-University Examination conducted by a recognised Board / University.
* First year Examination of a degree course of any recognised Indian University / Institute following a Higher Secondary Examination in the 10+1 system.
* Final Examination of the two-year course of the Joint Services Wing of the National Defence Academy.
* General Certificate Education (GCE) Examination (London/Cambridge/Sri Lanka) at the Advanced (A) level.
* High School Certificate Examination of the Cambridge University
* Any Public School/Board/University Examination in India or in foreign countries recognised by the Association of Indian Universities as equivalent to 10+2 system
* H. S. C. Vocational examination
* A pass grade in the Senior Secondary School Examination conducted by National Open School with a minimum of five subjects.
* 3- or 4-year diploma recognised by AICTE or a state board of technical education.
