Chemical Engineering is the discipline which combines the process with energy and environment in a profitable manner. And to make it happen, chemical engineering is unceasingly improving and expanding.
From the conventional view of chemical plants like petroleum refineries, petrochemicals, fertilizers and so on, to subtle applications like drug delivery, plant-in-chip, microorganism in plant, microfluidic; the discipline has evolved in a sustainable and greener manner. The progression in chemical engineering is in line with the needs of the man-kind as well as the ecosystem so that sustenance can be restored. Moreover, for the attainment of sustainable development goals, chemical engineers can contribute like never before. Department of Chemical Engineering at Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology, established in the year 1995, reflects this in the spectrum of curriculum, teaching, lab practices, research and innovation.
The amalgamation of core subjects (for fundamentals) with electives (for deep dive into new terrain); right balance between theory and laboratory sessions and cutting edge research ensure that the graduating students are capable of entering into the domain they wish, be it higher studies or industry. This responsibility is shouldered effectively by the faculty members of the department. Whether its teaching or research, the faculties have excelled in both the fields. Accreditation by NBA for UG and PG; excellent placement records, pursuance of higher study by students are the proofs of academic excellence while publication in high impact journals (indexed in SCI/E), excellent h- and i- indices, good numbers of sponsored research projects (from sponsoring agencies like DST, SERB, GUJCOST, CSIR, etc.), patent filing are outcomes of sincere and dedicated efforts towards research. The Department also offers testing and consultancy services to the industries. The outstanding achievements are because of synergism among the work-force and cordial environment prevailing since the inception of the Department. Recently, the Department was granted a fund of Rs. 1.68 Crore to strengthen the research facilities under FIST-2021 program by DST, GoI, New Delhi.
The Department takes immense pride for the contribution made by the faculty members and students towards betterment of the society, ecosystem and ultimately achieving sustainability.
