Amrita B. Tech. Admissions 2017


Chemical engineering is the broadest branch of engineering, training professionals to design, manufacture, operate and control processes of industries such as petroleum and petrochemicals, energy, power generation including ultra mega power plants, coal-bed methane, combined gas cycle plants and nuclear power, defense, mining and minerals including steel and aluminum, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, nanotechnology, cement, fertilizers, textiles, leather, food and agro-based technologies, polymers, and environmental engineering.

In this context, the demand for qualified professional chemical engineers to propel the growth of the industry and shape the contours of Indian economy is on the rise. The undergraduate(B. Tech) program offered in Chemical Engineering at Amrita University has a curriculum of global standards emphasizing the fundamentals, breadth of the discipline, and the necessary flexibility in being able to apply the fundamentals in widely varying contexts. Simultaneously trains the students in specialized elective streams such as materials science, nanotechnology, pharmaceuticals and petrochemicals, and petroleum refineries. With 45% of the faculty having a PhD degree, and another 25% actively pursuing their PhD, the students get to learn from well qualified and experienced staff.
