More about the course
The complete course is divided into 8 semesters of six months each. The subjects taught in the first two semesters are same for all branches of engineering. From 3rd semester onwards, the course curriculum starts concentrating on subjects of chemical engineering. The course covers various topics related to chemical industry and the application of chemistry in the mineral industry, pharmaceuticals, petroleum refining, synthetic products and petrochemicals. You learn about the production of chemicals and its by-products. It involves studying designing of chemical plants, maintaining them and developing processes that converts chemicals into useful products. As a chemical engineer you also learn to develop new synthetic materials that can replace natural resources that are too precious or in short supply. Chemical engineers by developing numerous such products have been instrumental in improving the quality of human life.
The job prospects in the field of chemical engineering are very bright. One can opt to work in a host of industries related to the chemical industry. From pharmaceuticals, fertilizers, food processing, textiles, plastic industry, petroleum products, refineries, paint and dyes, R&D labs, there are a host of other fields where a chemical engineer can find employment. Job opportunities are there in both the private and public sector. Those intending for higher education in the field can opt for M.Tech or M.S. after undergoing this course. Those having the inclination towards research can ultimately go for Ph.D and specialize in one of the fields in chemical engineering.
