The Chemical Engineering Department at IITM is a happening place with an exciting bunch of talented faculty and motivated students. The last few years have seen a dramatic increase in industrial collaboration and consultancy, research projects, research publications and faculty awards. Our students have actively participated in National and International Conferences and won many Best Paper/poster awards. In recent years, several publications have made it to the Journal Cover pages.
Chemical reaction engineering and thermodynamics, transport processes, process design and control, environmental engineering, polymer science and technology, semi-conductor materials processing, and particle technology.
Fundamental studies: Mathematical modeling of physico-chemical phenomena. Applied statistical mechanics, thermodynamic property estimation, phase equilibria. Flow visualisation using lasers, Microwave assisted thawing. Drying, multicomponent boiling and condensation. Simultaneous heat and mass transfer processes.consequat.
The faculty members of chemical engineering department are involved in applied research as well as fundamental research. Many of them serve as consultants to industries in India and overseas. Some industries with whom we collaborate are CPCL, EIL, GAIL, BHEL, NMRL, TATA, GM, IOCL, HPCL, NPCL, MFL
Our faculty members are involved in specific projects of interest to industry.
Department of Chemical Engineering offered several Courses for B. Tech, M. Tech, MS, Ph.D. Here we have listed the Courses are offered in last three years.
Vision of the Department
The Department’s vision is to be a global centre of academic and research excellence in Chemical Engineering Sciences and Technology, where knowledge is vigorously and meticulously pursued and disseminated, application to industry and society is valued, free thinking is encouraged, intellectual rigour is demanded and thoroughness is rewarded. We are in the process of establishing world class research facilities and research groups in specific areas of energy, environment and materials.
