Chemical Engineering: Gain Mastery Over Both Science and Technology To Rule The Realm Of Universal Engineering

Chemical Engineering is perhaps the most inclusive amongst all branches of engineering with a right amount of contribution in relation to the principles laid out by mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and even economics! Chemical engineering is a far more advanced discipline that became widely popular in the recent years, spanning over a wide range of areas especially in the design, production, usage, transportation and transformation of energy and materials.

Precisely, Chemical Engineering involves an array of functions right from utilising the nano particles, nano technology in a lab setup to processing raw materials, chemicals, even living cells, microorganisms, into a shape and size and later transforming into useful forms and products.

Chemical Engineers are experts in the design and execution of large scale plants, functioning, process design, analysis, control engineering, chemical reaction engineering, construction specifications, operational methods including safety and hazard assessments.

In the recent years, chemical engineers are in huge demand in the fields related to nuclear engineering, biological engineering, as well.

In a Q&A session with Dr Sriram Devanathan, Chairperson: Chemical Engineering & Material Sciences, Amrita School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore Campus, we bring all you need know about this high-in-demand discipline of engineering.

There are two points, I would like to discuss for this question. First and foremost is that there are certain concepts that are time tested, constitute the foundation of engineering principles including chemical engineering. These core concepts form the steppingstones for the future of students. And when it comes to predicting the future challenges and aligning the curriculum with that as on today, always tops our agenda. We are witnessing a revolution of sorts, with corporate industry embracing more industrial output and it’s time to accept it and take it seriously.

We are integrating the cyber physical systems like IoT, censor technologies, artificial intelligence and get adapted to all aspects of manufacturing. And at this crucial juncture, the Chemical Engineering cannot be left behind, and we are constantly on the job of introducing latest additions to the curriculum, based on the trends.

We brought in the concepts of computer science, mathematics into the curriculum. For instance, in mathematical courses, we introduced applications of chemical engineering, the software and also industry integration of the concepts. As we continued, we also understood that each student learns it the different way and provided them with ample opportunities to grasp more concepts.

Well, as I said each student has a different learning style and classroom lectures alone will not serve the purpose. We give them a little bit of flexibility in the form of peer base learning. Students get to work on projects as few courses are just project based and they don’t have to wait till final year. Our teaching methodology also includes aid from multimedia technology as it helps the pupils to gain a different perspective through various lectures. Industry representatives, topmost academicians are a part of our Board of Studies and their suggestions come in handy while designing the curriculum.

It is certainly quite advanced, unique, to-the-date and tomorrow. In fact, we have a free hand in brainstorming in designing the curriculum and make changes by tracking the trends. Our Board of Studies seeks valuable advice from eminent personalities both in academia and the industry. In fact, it is well appreciated by the faculties of IITs in our country.

We encourage our students to think out-of-the-box. There is a wrong notion among the student fraternity that the job opportunities for the chemical engineers are quite limited and their roles are often confined to designer or process engineers. I would encourage students in chemical engineers to look at new vistas like the entire supply chain, right from product conception stage, raw materials, processing, shipping, transportation and the entire part of it. A chemical engineer is in demand in various sectors including petroleum and petrochemicals, energy and power generation, nuclear power and defence, biotechnology and nano technology, polymers and environmental engineering, textiles and leather, mining and minerals, pharmaceuticals, agro based technologies. In fact, you name it, you have a chemical engineer in it!

We offer a combination of training both from the department faculty and industry experts. The Corporate Industry and Relations Group provide 200 hours plus of training covering various topics including aptitude, general knowledge, communication, group discussions, verbal, quantitative etc. In fact, the students should write an All India Aptitude exam as well to boost their confidence.

We have faculty who earlier worked in the industry and that way it is possible to leverage at least some incorporation of industry relevance in the curriculum. The lectures are not just theoretical but also carry a lot of emphasis on industry.

It is true that the companies are looking for more than CGPA. They are on a constant lookout for the youngsters willing to learn, execute, get along well with others, come up with a solution, interpersonal skills etc. Freshers are not expected to create miracles, but they are well appreciated, if they are willing to learn and be humble. We as a faculty keep sharing several positive anecdotes with our students, hoping to give a clear picture of their future.

The skills, strength and interests vary from person to person and they are unique. So, the answer is different for each student. The first step is to identify their core strengths and share our advice. Having said that we do not insist on what’s right for them, it’s the job of student to discover what exactly works. In other words, we show them options.

  1. The students can always consider going for higher studies owing to innumerable opportunities. Chemical engineers are often touted as universal engineers and several prestigious universities take chemical engineering graduates for higher studies into various departments like aerospace, petroleum, plastics, biochemical engineering etc. These days students even go for managerial studies to find a foothold in oil management sector.
  2. Every year, we find at least 15 of our students going for higher studies abroad. Our students do very well in qualifying exams like TOEFEL, IELTS, GRE etc. In case, if they want to GATE, we provide them all necessary guidance. We facilitate GATE coaching for those who want to stay in India and study here.

Internship opportunities are available and there is no dearth for it. In fact, many students manage to get it on their own and but we make sure they do a lot of productive work during these sessions.

The infrastructure, labs are our key strengths. In 2013, in recognition of our research we were sanctioned a Centre of Excellence in Advanced Materials and Green Technologies from a grant with the Ministry of Human Resources, Government of India.

At that time, there was a program called Frontier Areas in Science and Technology (FAST), we were the only one to have focussed on Advanced Materials and Green Technology in the whole country. This served as a launching pad and currently we have 9 labs as a part of this centre with teams working on environment, health, defence and aerospace, bio and nano industries. There is one lab related to phytochemistry that works towards extraction of chemicals from natural medicinal plants.

The department has several projects that are being amply funded and we just received Rs 16 crore in aid for research and modernisation of labs. We have an advanced material characterisation and testing laboratory which houses spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy and other latest equipment.

Working on this kind of equipment motivates them from the very first year and they learn with deep interest in the subject.

The department of Chemical Engineering and Material Sciences in Amrita School of Engineering is an excellent combination of advanced curriculum, experienced and research-oriented faculty, outstanding infrastructure and lab facilities and most importantly a vision to prosper. These factors drive us towards being brilliant performers and the toppers in chemical engineering. And what could be a better place for any youngster hoping to be a chemical engineer, than Amrita School of Engineering?
