The department started in the year 1955, supporting the UG and PG courses offered by Chemical Engineering and Chemical Technology, since then by the Institute. The department has an excellent teaching facility, adequately supported by well-equipped UG laboratories and PG research laboratories. Our graduate students are employed in well-reputed organizations in India and also perceive their Higher Education from reputed institutes. The department is one of the oldest in India, thousands of UG and PG graduates are rendering their services to many Industrial and Government, Research Laboratories and Academic Institutes in India and across the Globe.

The faculty members are actively engaged in research publications and several books have been contributed which are referred by many Universities. National seminars are attended and conducted by faculty members. The Apple Academic Press, Canada has published two edited Books based on the Research Papers contributed by various authors from all over the Nation. Departmental faculties are working on various Research and Consultancy projects sanctioned by UGC, DST, SERB, etc.

The faculty also takes care of the overall development of students by conducting co and extra-curricular activities that include annual festivals, national seminars for students, and various quizzes, several prizes have been won by the students at different levels from time to time.

The notable feature of the department is its contribution towards maintaining a very high track record of recruitment of Chemical Engineering graduates over the year since its inception. The department has produced many Entrepreneurs, Bureaucrats, Academicians Technocrats, etc. who have contributed to the development of society. The department is providing a conducive atmosphere for the students in order to enhance the learning process further. The department is having different laboratories like Mass Transfer, Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics, Mechanical Operations, Chemical Reactor Design, Simulation, Process Dynamics & control, and Environmental Engineering.
