Department of
Chemical Engineering

IIT Bombay

Started in 1958, our department counts among the oldest departments of IIT Bombay. We take pride in having grown from a department pursuing pure Chemical Engineering research to one currently engaged in inter-disciplinary Chemical Engineering Science. The department is home to more than 220 young and energetic research scholars working under the able guidance of about 40 eminent faculty members. We try to foster an environment that promotes an interest in academia and industry such that our students can forge strong collaborations between these, to go forth and solve real-world problems. The global footprint of our alumni in both academia and industry speaks for itself.

Research in the Department is primarily multi-disciplinary in nature and the current research tracks can be categorized as follows:

  • Nanotechnology
  • Process Systems Engineering
  • Catalysis and Chemical Reaction Engineering
  • Energy, Climate and Sustainability
  • Complex Fluids and Soft Matter
  • Biotechnology and Bio-systems Engineering
  • Multi-scale Simulations
