undergraduate program

Offered Programs:

Courses of Study
The degree programs at Department of Chemical, Polymer and Composite Materials Engineering cover all aspects of knowledge, skills and industrial motives to enable graduates with strong technical education for rapidly changing technological environment to pursue lifelong learning and to achieve professional success.
The department offers undergraduate courses of study leading to the following degrees:

  • B.Sc. Chemical Engineering
  • B.S. Chemical Engineering Technology

1.       Chemical Engineering
The Department of Chemical, Polymer & Composite Materials Engineering at KSK Campus was designed to build on current acclivities and to provide a nucleus for the University's rapidly expanding industrially oriented research training and consultancy in Chemical Engineering. The curriculum for the B.Sc. Chemical Engineering has evolved over a number of years and is designed to prepare the students for design, operation, and supervision of Chemical, Biochemical and Polymer Plants. The course is updated regularly to incorporate the outcomes of local and global research in the field of Chemical Engineering. Emphasis is given to the use of computers by students in problem solving and design of equipment and plant. The course curriculum is same as already being followed in Chemical Engineering Department, Main Campus.

Program Educational Objectives
B.Sc. chemical engineering programs in the department is designed to provide its graduates a solid educational foundation on which they can build successful and sustainable careers in chemical engineering, chemical technology or a related field. The objectives are:

  • PEO-1: To prepare graduates with strong technical education for practicing and applying the principles of Chemical Engineering and with excellent communication skills to enable them have successful careers in a variety of industrial and professional environments
  • PEO-2: To prepare graduates for rapidly changing technological environment with the core knowledge central to multidisciplinary development and personal improvement throughout their professional careers
  • PEO-3: To enable graduates pursue continued life-long learning through professional practice, further graduate education, or other training programs in engineering sciences or other professional fields
  • PEO-4: To enable graduates achieve professional success with an understanding and appreciation of ethical behaviour, social responsibility, and diversity, both as individuals and in team environments

Program Learning Outcomes
The PLOs are published in the student handbook of Chemical Engineering department and are also displayed in the department for the awareness of faculty as well as of students. These engineering attributes (PLOs) of the Chemical Engineering Department are 12 in number and are listed below:

  • Engineering Knowledge: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  • Problem Analysis: An ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  • Design/Development of Solutions: An ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • Investigation: An ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments, analysis and interpretation of experimental data and synthesis of information to derive valid conclusions.
  • Modern Tool Usage: An ability to 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: An ability to apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solution to complex engineering problems.
  • Environment and Sustainability: An ability to understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
  • Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
  • Individual and Team Work: An ability to work effectively, as an individual or in a team, on multifaceted and /or multidisciplinary settings.
  • Communication: An ability to communicate effectively, orally as well as in writing, 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: An ability to demonstrate management skills and apply engineering principles to one's own work, as a member and/or leader in a team, to manage projects in a multidisciplinary environment.
  • Lifelong Learning: An Ability to recognize importance of, and pursue lifelong learning in the broader context of innovation and technological developments.

 

2.         Chemical Engineering Technology
Chemical Technologists work in every aspect of chemical process industry; from basic research to hazardous waste management, commercial production monitoring and product quality testing and analysis. Curriculum of the program is designed in such a way that students in final semester work in the industry, government organizations and private laboratories to gain experience by applying knowledge and skills they have gained in first seven semesters.
