Chemical Engineering


The Department of Chemical Engineering is established in the year 2018-19 in B.Tech Chemical Engineering affiliated to Anna University, Chennai with an intake of 60 students.. A degree in Chemical Engineering combines Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Mathematics and Economics, helping students to develop their knowledge at a molecular level, through to the application of expertise in large-scale or industrial environments.

Chemical Engineers design and produce the processes to produce, transform and transport materials to become usable and useful end products – from plastics, to pharmaceuticals to make-up. This begins with experiments in a laboratory and follows on in implementing the technologies in full-scale production.

In the past, Chemical Engineering was known to cover just oil refining and Petrochemical Production, but the industry is constantly progressing and study will be influenced by advancement in the field. New and improved materials are always being developed, so students will come to know new fields such as nanotechnology, fuel cells, fabric development, mineral processing and bioengineering. But core subjects include fluid mechanics, mass and heat transfer, thermodynamics, plant design, process systems, process economics, process analysis and process operations.

A large number of industries rely on the synthesis and processing of chemicals and materials so chemical engineers are always in demand. Traditional careers for a chemical engineer can be found in the chemical, energy and oil industries, as well as the less traditional spheres of biotech, pharmaceuticals, environmental engineering and device fabrication.
