Welcome to the exciting world of Chemical Engineering! The Department of Chemical Engineering was started in the year 2012 In Indore Institute of Science & Technology, Indore. Chemical Engineers take a unique view of processes – they have the ability to look at processes which convert raw materials into useful products – both from an overall perspective, determining the economic feasibility of such conversion processes, but also from a very fundamental perspective, where the role and behavior of specific components participating in these processes are studied in detail. This is what makes Chemical Engineering unique and relevant. Our students are exposed to practical problems through the department’s well equipped laboratories including Software Laboratory for advanced computation and simulation using software like CHEMCAD, AFT Fathom, AutoCAD P&ID, and MATLAB etc.

Industrial tours and in-plant training are organized in reputed chemical plants for our B.Tech Students every semester to link smart classroom teaching with chemical plant operation. Variety of workshops and guest lectures on advanced/emerging topics in Chemical Engineering are also organized for students. Reputed firms visit our campus to recruit the graduating engineers. Chemical Engineers are at the forefront of technology and their role in modern society is becoming increasingly important. Chemical Engineering Department at IIST takes pride in nurturing high quality Chemical Engineering professionals for fruitful engagement in industry, research and academics.  I trust that you will find Chemical Engineering as interesting, challenging and relevant as many others before you have.
