Department of Chemical Engineering


Introduction:


The Department of Chemical Engineering of National Institute of Technology, Durgapur, was established with active support of UNESCO. The department was built up by a team of dedicated faculty members wit the help of a host of visiting professors deputed by UNESCO to NIT Durgapur. Some of the faculty members were trained abroad under UNESCO programme, and a number of equipment and instruments were donated by UNESCO to the department. The B.E. course in Chemical Engineering was started in 1964, and the first batch of students were awarded the degree in 1969. The Post-graduate programme with the specialisation 'Production Fertilisers' was introduced in 1968, along with the doctoral programme in Chemical Engineering. The department has a sanctioned intake of 30 students for the B.E. course per year. For admission to the M. Tech. course, 10 seats are available in regular full-time course with a duration of 1.5 years, while 10 seats are reserved for part-time students from industries with a course duration of 3 years. Cirriculum and syllabi of the courses offered were continuously updated over the years to keep pace with rapidly changing technological developments. Since 1999 new curricula and syllabi were implemented in the college for undergraduate studies.

Mission:


To impart quality technical and scientific education and produce engineers, technologists, scientists and citizens who will contribute meaningfully to the growth and development of the country and excel in various disciplines of knowledge.

Vision:


To impart quality technical education and focus on research and innovation to cater to the needof the country.
