Graduate Program

MSc in Chemical Engineering

The Department offers M.Sc. degree courses in Chemical Engineering in the following 4 specializations:

  • Process Engineering
  • Industrial Pollution Control Engineering
  • Biochemical Engineering
  • Computer Aided Design

The following two routes are available to qualify for the award of M.Sc. degree:

  • M.Sc. Degree (Full Time)

This course is of 12 months duration ad extends over 3 academic terms of 4 months each. During the first 2 terms, students are required to take various courses and take examination at the end of each term. One term is focused on the advanced Chemical Engineering subjects compulsory for all specializations. The other term focuses on specialization courses in one of the 4 available fields. In third term, students undertake research projects on completion of which, a dissertation is submitted for evaluation / assessment. Degree is awarded on passing the requisite number of courses as well as the successful completion of the dissertation.

  • M.Sc. Degree (Part Time)

The Department offers the facility of undertaking M.Sc. degree on part-time basis to suit in-service chemical engineers. The classes are held in the evening for these students. The duration of part-time course is double of that for the full-time courses. Other requirements for the degree are the same.
The detail of courses (click here...) for the M.Sc. degree can be found. The faculty has supervised a significant no. of design projects for MSc degree. A typical list is attached here.

PhD in Chemical Engineering

For PhD degree, the students undertake supervised research work for a minimum period of 3 years. Original research contributions are expected for the successful completion of this degree. On completion of research work, a thesis has to be submitted. Ph.D. degree is awarded after international preview approval of thesis by board of examiners.
