FACILITIES

The B. Tech Chemical Engineering course was started in the year 1994. The department comprises of highly qualified, dedicated and experienced faculty and staff. The department has 7 well equipped laboratories with state-of-art facilities.


The laboratory building has 30m X 20m space under one roof where four laboratories have been setup. In addition to that laboratory space, chemical engineering block houses technical & instrumental laboratory, instrumental analysis laboratory and physical chemistry laboratory.
