  • The faculty have good academic and industrial background, and are actively engaged in teaching, research and industrial interaction.
  • Presently, out of the 11 faculty members, 7 are Ph.D holders and two are pursuing Ph.D.
  • The department has been organizing a number of short term training programs, seminars, workshops and guest lectures by experts. Faculty members are encouraged to participate in short term courses and workshops by the management of the college.
  • The department has a student's chapter (IIChE) which organizes Conferences, webinars and workshops for the students.
  • About 58 papers have been published in the last 5 years in various international and national refereed journals and conferences.
  • The faculty have research interests relating to Microfluidics, Multi Objective Optimization, Three Phase Fluidization, Fuel Cell, Process control, Membrane separations, Bio Fouling, essential oils, precursors for carbon fibers and synthesis of Nano particles.
  • The department has completed an AICTE - RPS project and two AICTE - MODROBS projects worth of Rs 40 Lakhs.
  • AICTE - RPS project on 'Production of Mesophase Pitch suitable for making carbon fibers from Coal Tar' has been completed and Mesophase pitch with 70% Mesophase content suitable for carbon fibers was successfully produced in the lab.
  • The department is also training the students on the application of software for Chemical Engineering like COMSOL for CFD, PRO II for Chemical Process simulation, MATLAB for general simulations and a Real Time Simulator.
  • PYTHON programming language, Artificial Intelligence(AI), Internet of Things(IOT) have been introduced from R-2019 regulations.
  • The department is equipped with digital board class room and the faculty use it as a teaching aid to deliver the lecture content through the digital board and the students can be benefitted by visualizing the lectures.
  • The department has established a strong industry interaction by the Training Technical Service personnel of HPCL on HYSYS, MACRED INDIA employees in the basics of Chemical Engineering.
  • The department also actively engaged in helping purify industrial solvents of local chemical companies. Training program for VASUDHA Pharma Chem employees was organized in chemical engineering unit operations.
  • The department had also signed MOU with JENGU Water Pvt. Ltd. and established RO based pilot desalination plant. A MOU has been signed with LAC Growers Cooperative in 2019.
  • One of the projects carried out by the UG students was awarded the best project of GVP- College of Engineering (A) by TCS and a patent was published for the "Mosquito Repellent" in 2017.
  • The Department has full-fledged and well established Process Simulation Lab, Chemical Engineering Laboratories like Heat Transfer, Mass Transfer, Chemical Reaction, Process control, Mechanical unit operations, Fluid mechanics and Chemical Technology which meet the requirements of the undergraduate curriculum.
  • Apart from the regular Labs, the department has also setup a Simulation lab which imparts the students with the knowledge and experience on process simulation, real time control of Distillation Column, Absorber & Stirred Tank Reactor, CFD, Process simulation using PRO-II and MATLAB.
