About the Department

Department of Chemical Engineering under the school of Mechanical Sciences was established on 2009 and offers Bachelor of Technology programmes in Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology. The department is multi-disciplinary with faculty expertise ranging from Process Engineering, Biotechnology, Polymer Science, Nanotechnology and Environmental Engineering. The department has well established laboratories as well as good infrastructure to carry out research.

About the Programme

Chemical Engineering is the branch of engineering which deals with the processing of raw materials to desired products on large scale with the objective of the economical and successful design of unit processes and unit operations for commercial purposes.

Scope

A chemical engineer is required to:

  • To design equipments and operate chemical plants.
  • To determine the problems and find the best methods of production.
  • To create synthetic replacements for those natural materials and resources those are in short supply.
  • To improve and maintain of the quality of human life.
    As these requirements are in great demand, the scope for a chemical engineer is vast and varied when compared to the other branches of engineering.

Duration : 4 Years

B.TECH CHEMICAL ENGINEERING

B.Tech in Chemical Engineering at Hindustan covers a wide range of domains spanning from basic sciences to applied science emphasizing on research and development. This programme serves as a bridge between industry and academics and is designed to provide students with in-depth knowledge about the various processes in the chemical industry. It strives to develop industry-centric professionals specialized in chemical engineering principles, process design, petroleum refining, unitoperations, unitprocesses and other core chemical engineering subjects

BIO-TECHNOLOGY

Biotechnology is defined as any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms or derivatives of thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use ( UN Convention Biological Diversity, Art.2). In simple words, Biotechnology is technology based on biology. It is a fusion of science and technology where living organisms or systems are used to develop or manufacture new products.
