B. Tech. Chemical Engineering
In 2017, Saintgits College of Engineering established Chemical Engineering to the already list of professional courses. The Department is set up to motivate and guide students into a combination of research and industry-oriented professionals as the stream have a broad variety of avenues to explore. The 4-year B. Tech. course is organized, considering the need of the hour for students making it a perfect blend of core, research, and industry-related courses. This unique blend of courses makes the student ready to choose a career path according to the exposure and passion through the four years of academic excellence. Course projects are designed as part of the curriculum with eminent faculty guidance, which provides students direct exposure to research and industrial problems. The well-equipped laboratories provide an amble source of state-of-the-art analytical techniques, which students will use directly for their lab work and research projects.

Scope of Chemical Engineering
With the onset of industrial revolution and growing demand for oil, a blended knowledge in Chemistry and Mechanical Engineering has become more significant and demanding. A pure Chemistry graduate lacks sufficient engineering skills to deal with process design, whereas a Mechanical Engineer might not be equipped with the know how in Chemistry to optimize the design. At this juncture the birth of a new stream, Industrial Chemistry took place and was further refined to Chemical Engineering.
Though the new engineering stream was primarily focused on oil and gas, it has soon become a pivot in designing and operating processes that concern man for his day-to-day life. From the manufacturing of tooth paste to the most modern microprocessor chips, the involvement of a Chemical Engineer is indispensable. They play major roles in industries in designing processes to convert raw materials to desired products, to measure and validate its properties and constantly improve the quality, and design new products based on demand. There is a large number of public sector and private companies who are involved in designing or commissioning of process plants such as Engineers India Ltd., ExxonMobil, ChemDist Process Solutions, Emperia Energy Private Ltd., etc. Once the plant is commissioned, the role of a Chemical Engineer is to run the process plant at desired process conditions specified in the design, this is facilitated by Process Engineers.
Chemical Engineering is one of the broadest branches of Engineering, training the professionals to design, operate, and control the processes of wide diversity such as petroleum and petrochemicals, fertilizers, paper, food, agro-chemicals, biochemicals, pharmaceuticals, polymers, nanomaterials, cement, textiles, leather, nuclear power, energy, power generation, environmental engineering, safety engineering, mineral processing, etc. From the wide area of applications it is very clear that a country demands qualified professional Chemical Engineers to propel the industrial growth.
Every chemical industry recruits Chemical Engineers and some of the most important Indian chemical companies are, Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. (IOCL), Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (HPCL), Reliance Petrochemicals, Hindustan Unilever, etc. Apart from running the plant a Chemical Engineer is constantly involved in the research and development of new products and processes for improving the quality and efficiency.
Welcome to the Department of Chemical Engineering at Saintgits College of Engineering. Established in 2017, our Department has marked its prominent position as a centre of excellence committed to delivering sound theoretical knowledge, coupled with software aided technical skills in Chemical Engineering.
The prime focus of the Department is to mould our students to play major roles in chemical process industries. We strive to provide exposure to our students with state-of-art research opportunities while creating a deep understanding of Chemical Engineering principles through interactive technical sessions in association with various industries and peer research groups.
Our Department continued to flourish to be a large family of over 200 undergraduate students and 12 faculties over the recent years. Each student is assigned with a faculty mentor, who guides and assists the students with their learning process. Come & explore the realm of Chemical Engineering. I hope you will have an ever cherishing campus experience with us.
