As a global emerging power, India is transforming and repositioning herself through innovations in the fields of infrastructure, education, agriculture, health, environment, energy, and economy. Chemical engineers are playing vital role in this transformation. Chemical engineering is one of the most versatile engineering fields with its applications in diverse spectrum of industries ranging from petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, food, power, agriculture, textile, mining, and defence. It is also applicable in modern emerging technological fields such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, renewable energy, Information technology, space, and biology.
In this context, the demand for qualified professional chemical engineers to propel growth of the industry and shape the contours of Indian economy is on the rise. The undergraduate (B. Tech) program offered in Chemical Engineering by the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore, has a curriculum of global standards emphasizing on the fundamentals, breadth of the discipline, and the necessary flexibility in being able to apply the fundamentals in widely varying contexts. It simultaneously trains the students in specialized elective streams such as materials science, nanotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and petrochemicals. With nearly 70% of the faculty members holding PhDs from globally recognized universities in a variety of specializations, and the remaining members due for completion in the coming year, the students get early exposure to rich professional experience and expertise.
The students in the department learn hands-on engineering skills in state-of-the-art laboratories, workshops, and high end computing machines. They are also exposed to advanced research facilities such as scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Gas Chromatography & Mass Spectroscopy (GC-MS), and X-ray Diffraction (XRD). They also have access to wide variety of books and magazines through one of the most advanced libraries in the country.
Amrita School of Engineering and the department have excellent placement records for the graduating students. The students have been placed in major chemical industrial companies including General Electric (GE), Schneider India, 3M, Akzo Nobel, Apollo tyres, Reliance, IOCL, BPCL, Asian Paints, Sanmar Group, and many more. Nearly 25-30% of the students go abroad every year for higher studies in highly reputed institutions spread across Europe, USA, Canada, Japan, Singapore, and Australia.
