▌ Prospective B.Tech
The chemical engineering B.Tech program is a comprehensive one consisting of 12 core courses spanning various areas including mathematical methods, thermodynamics, reaction engineering, heat and mass transport, and process control. The newly revamped curriculum also involves 8 laboratory courses that serve as companions to the theory courses. Students are also encouraged to take up electives in process systems, computational fluid dynamics, catalysis, colloids, polymer rheology, and so on.
The vibrant chemical engineering department has 30 faculty members and several research scholars involved in cutting edge research in several topics of current interest. B.Tech students are encouraged to involve themselves in short-term research projects, working alongside M.S. and Ph.D. scholars in various groups, as well. A rigorous grounding in fundamentals with the opportunity to explore several state-of-the-art topics, is what you can expect from the B.Tech Chem Engg program at IIT Madras.
