Chemical Engineering

Why to Study Chemical ?

The department of Chemical Engineering was established in 1997, conducts 4 years degree course in Engineering under affiliation to Berhampur University (upto 2006) and Biju Patnaik University of Technology (B.Tech programme w.e.f. 2003) having intake capacity 60. The course is designed by the University, and aimed at making the students well versed with the recent trends as well as the basics of Chemical Engineering. The Department has been accredited thrice by the National Board of Accreditation. The Chemical Engineering Department’s strength lies in a highly experienced and celebrated team of professors drawn from premier technological institutions of the country. There are a number of laboratories with state – of – the -art machinery, sophisticated equipment and apparatus to elevate the image of the Department and the institution as a whole.

About Department

The field of Chemical engineering is a diverse one ranging from biotechnology and nanotechnology to mineral processing. The work of chemical engineers is the most versatile of all engineers; involve the invention, development, design, operation and management of processes in industries. The scope of chemical engineers is tending to grow in future due to industrial expansion and related scarcity of resources needed. It is diverse and dynamic with market sectors rapidly expanding. the major areas which offers good career opportunities for chemical engineers are Petrochemical Industry, Oil and refining, Nuclear Industry, Power Industry, Pharmaceuticals, Polymer Industry, Mining, Biotechnology, Nanotechnology and Space research.


To develop competent chemical engineers into an atmosphere of innovation and critical thinking.


  1. To provide high-quality education in Chemical Engineering to prepare the graduates for a rewarding career in tune with evolving needs of the industry.
  2. To prepare the students to become responsible professionals and capable citizens who would apply their knowledge critically and innovatively to solve professional and social problems.
