The Chemical Engineering graduates have bright scope of employment in Fertilizer, Petrochemicals, Cement, Metallurgical, Paper, Pharmaceutical & Software Industries. The course structure has been revised in accordance with the need of different industries. To cope with the demand of software engineers, the department is putting extra emphasis on computer-related subjects. The department arranges industrial study tours to make the students acquainted with different industries. The department has one Chemical Engineering Society, which is actively engaged in all total development of the students. This department is also a Student Chapter of the Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers, which is actively involved in various student-related activities.
