Our program is specifically tailored to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to conduct original research and make a significant contribution to the field of chemical engineering.

Research Supervision:

Our faculty members are highly qualified and experienced in their respective research areas. They have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in various areas of chemical engineering such as bioprocess engineering, energy and environmental engineering, process control and optimization, and materials science and engineering. They are committed to providing students with personalized guidance and support throughout their research journey, from proposal development to thesis defense.

Research Groups:

The department has several active research groups that focus on various areas of chemical engineering research. These groups include:

  • Biomass Conversion Research Group (BCRG)
  • Catalysis & Reaction Engineering Research Group (CRERG)
  • Nano-Green Research Group
  • PRESTIGE-Process & Energy Systems Engineering Center
  • Polymer and Composite Materials Group
  • Membrane Systems Research Group
  • Microfluidics Research Groups (MRG).

Joining one of these groups allows students to work closely with a group of faculty members and students who share similar research interests, and gain access to specialized equipment and facilities.

Industrial Collaborations:

The Department has strong linkages with industries and collaboration with leading universities around the globe. These collaborations provide students with opportunities to gain hands-on experience in industry and access to cutting-edge research and technologies. These collaborations also provide students with opportunities for internships and employment after graduation.
