The department of Chemical Engineering has been recognized in India for the excellence in academics. The Department was commenced in the year 1999 and it was started by Late Dr S.N. Vyas with 30 undergraduate students in the B. E. Chemical Engineering programme and has been doing its best to bring about excellence in academics achieved in the last 21 years and it is continuously striving to improve the quality of education to meet the needs of industries and to excel in academics and research.

The current sanctioned strength of the B.E. Chemical Engineering programme is 30 by REAP and 3 students come from lateral entry. The first batch passed out in the year 2003 from the department.

The department is equipped with undergraduate laboratories and research laboratory that have been strengthened and modernized under TEQIP (World Bank) grants and other grants. The faculty actively participates in sponsored research and consultancy work.

The course curriculum of the department is designed with special focus to effectively meet the current challenges of the industries. The department offers the students wide range of subjects, taught by eminent professors with decades of industry and research exposure, enabling students to pursue their dream courses in-depth and build core competency. With practical exposure through two industry summer internships and regular workshops, students of Chemical Engineering are honed in their skill sets, making them versatile and industry-ready.

Message from the Head of Department: 
The substantial growth of any industry requires young and intelligent individuals with abundance of enthusiasm. In today’s scenario, where the industrial requirements are changing rapidly, the chemical engineering department provides highly motivated and talented tailor-made chemical engineers. With diverse research field of the faculty members in core chemical and various interdisciplinary areas, the department continues its legacy of being a forefront education center in western Rajasthan. This is attested by our alumni who have distinguished themselves in the academia, industry and entrepreneurship in India and abroad. The rigorous academic curriculum, inter-discipline courses and 11 modern laboratories provide hands-on experience with state-of -the-art technology. The students also have skills that are meticulously cultivated during their stay at the institute. In addition to academics, the department encourages a variety of co-curricular activities that are managed by students themselves with due support of faculty members. The department also motivates the students to participate in number of competitions and activities at National and International levels.
I am pleased to present the current batch of Chemical Engineering students which possesses robust technical and analytical skills. Their varied skill-set and basic knowledge will give you diverse options to select the students for your esteemed organization. I am confident that these students will outshine the rest and perform as per the expectations of the employers and will truly be the valuable assets to the organizations.
