Program Outline

The Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) in Chemical Engineering degree program of study is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and offers choice based credit system education. In addition to core courses, student can opt for discipline specific elective subjects, open electives subjects from different institutes of the University. At the same time, this program is uniquely designed to increase the employability and to prepare students to work in a Multi-discipline work environment. To achieve this, program offers Major-Minor degree scheme wherein Major will be in core Chemical Engineering and Minor will be as per students interests.

To provoke independent thoughts in students and importance of team work, program also gives emphasis on outcome based education, design thinking process and cooperative education component involving Projects, Seminar, Internships and activity based learning. We aim and prepare students to be adaptable and industry-ready having competencies across range of technical and non-technical subjects. Chemical Engineers have continuously contributed and still are contributing to improve standard of living of the society through many sustainable processes and products. Therefore, we are sure that after completion of this program our students will be very well suited to serve in both industrial and service sector.

Activities

Recently Concluded Webinar Series

Industry Visit

Second year chemical engineering students visited the industry “Probus International LLP” in Paithan, Aurangabad on 2nd August 2019. This company is owned by alumnus of Chemical Engineering Department, Mr Vasant Hingnikar. During the visit students observed and understood the advanced separation process to extract essential oils from medicinal plants, seeds and other biomass. Mr Hinginikar keenly explained the process (operated at very high pressure) to all students. Students were very excited to see actual chemical process plant for the first time.

Industry Visit

Third year chemical engineering students visited Food Industry “Cowland Agro Pvt.Ltd.” in Chikalthana, Aurangabad on 19 September 2019. This industry visit was mainly arranged for students as they study an Elective Subject “Food Technology”. During the visit students observed and understood various operations in Dairy Industry i.e. Pasteurization, Heat Exchange, Bottling of product, steam generation etc. It was a fully automated Plant and student understood theprocess automation, piping layout, insulation and support for equipments. Plant Supervisor thoroughly explained all the processes to students.

Guest Lecture

Chemical Engineering Department under the activities of MoU with Central Institute of Plastic Engineering and Technology (CIPET), Aurangabad as a part of which a Guest Lecture-cum-Public Awareness session on “Plastic Waste Management &Recycling Techniques” was arranged for Second, Third and Final year students on 30 September 2019. Dr BelimAkhtar and Mr Seturaman, faculty members of CIPET explained necessity of plastic recycling through Videos and presentations. Students understood the difference between various types of plastic which can be recycled and which cannot. They also allowed our second year students to undergo 2 weeks of Internship at CIPET during winter vacation.

Industrial Visit

Final year chemical engineering students visited the on-campus Sewage Treatment Plant and Effluent Treatment Plant being operated by Mahatma Gandhi Mission. During the visit students studied both Sewage Treatment and Effluent Treatment processes and understood various waste water treatment plant design aspects i.e. Aeration unit, Sedimentation unit, Filtration unit and Piping layout for the visit.
