Programme Details

B. Tech (Chemical Engineering)

Engineering is the profession in which knowledge of mathematics and natural sciences is used to the benefit of mankind. Engineers develop solutions to the problems of society within the constraints of economy and environment. Their primary job function includes activities such as design, analysis, manufacturing, research, sales, management, consulting and many more. New generation engineers are required to cope up with rapid changes in both, domain knowledge and nature of problems to be solved. Engineering profession is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary; making demands on knowledge, skills as well as personality. Our B. Tech Programme is based on the three cardinal principles: providing social context to education, giving maximum choice to the student to choose a career path and encouraging active learning.

Why to Choose?

Chemical engineers have been improving our well-being for more than a century. From the development of smaller, faster computer chips to innovations in recycling, treating disease, cleaning water, and generating energy. Chemical engineers work in manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, design and construction, pulp and paper, petrochemicals, food processing, specialty chemicals, microelectronics, electronic and advanced materials, polymers, business services, biotechnology, environmental health and safety industries, among others. At MIT-WPU, we develop Chemical Engineers with sound human values and sense of world citizenship.

In this Programme, You will learn….

First year provides foundation of basic sciences including living systems. Since design is an activity central to the engineering profession, students in the very first year are exposed to design thinking. Social internship in first year is credit based and exposes the students to the problems faced by community. This is expected to sow the seeds of socially oriented innovation in the students’ mind. Second year courses are designed to provide grounding in basic chemical engineering sciences such as Chemical Process Calculations, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, and Particulate Technology. Summer internship at the end of second year involves guided study tour. The tour will expose students to our diverse culture, technology achievements and challenges. Third and fourth year will include the subjects belonging to his/her chosen track within Chemical Engineering. Track subjects are designed to cater to the careers in Process Design and Simulation, Chemical Process Safety, Refining and Petrochemicals, and Fine Chemical Sector. International study tour of four weeks will offer global exposure. Capstone project in the final year and host of mini-projects throughout the course will inculcate problem solving skills, team spirit, professional ethics and habit of self-learning.

How will this Programme be taught?

Our programme offers three tracks of specialization which lead to careers in Process Design and Simulation, Chemical Process Safety, Refining and Petrochemicals, and Fine Chemical Sector. The curriculum is imparted with active learning methods like Problem Based Learning (PBL), Experiential Learning and Collaborative Learning.
