Research Scholars’ Symposium (RSS) is an annual flagship event instituted in 2007 and organised by Research Scholars of the Department under the aegis of Chemical Engineering Association, IIT Bombay. RSS aims to promote teamwork, partnership and collaboration, to envisage the crucial and essential synergy between academic and industrial research.
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.
