Department of Chemical Engineering

The Department of Chemical Engineering was established in 1999-2000 with a view of imparting state of the art education in cutting edge technologies of the world. The sanctioned intake in 1999 was 60 students per year. The Department has since seen tremendous growth in all areas. The chemical engineering department is housed in an ultramodern complex, and has well equipped laboratories with modern equipment. It is the only Chemical Engineering department Accredited by NBA, New Delhi in the RTM Nagpur University region amongst all affiliated Engineering Colleges. Since biotechnology has close links with chemical engineering in areas such as reactor design, processing and modeling it is being considered an extension of the department of chemical engineering.

Chemical Engineering Department got AICTE approval for the Post Graduation Course, M.Tech in Chemical Engineering during the year 2010-11 with the intake of 18 Students per year. The Department also got RTMNU recognition for Research work in Chemical Engineering (PhD). The alumnus and the students are the stars of the department & have always excelled in University examinations and are well placed in the corporate sector globally. The department is always at the forefront when it comes to technology and to keep itself abreast with the newer happenings, it organizes several activities like guest lectures, seminars, workshops and industrial visits. Department has well equipped & state of the art laboratories constructed with an investment more than Rs. 0.5 crore till date.

Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.

Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.

Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.

Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.

Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.

The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.

Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.

Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.

Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.

Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.

Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.

Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.

Demonstrate an understanding of basic concept, terminology, and principles and to apply in problem-solving scenarios through hands-on experiences.

Design a unit operation and unit process to solve engineering problems using basic engineering principles and methods and to exhibit proficiency in applying technology to Industry, Society and Environmental problems.

Demonstrate the ability to work effectively as part of a team and apply professional behavior and ethics.
