  • After doing diploma in Chemical Engineering one can try to do Engineering course in Chemical Engineering or graduate course and subsequently post graduate course in Chemical Engineering as different universities have different type of courses abroad. There are a large number of universities which are offering various courses including Chemical Engineering to the foreign students and there is an admission process involved everywhere where one has to visit the university site and apply for the admission. One has to provide all the educational credentials by scanning the documents and attaching with the application online. In addition one has to complete an English proficiency test like IELTS or TOEFL which assess the listening, reading, writing and speaking capabilities of the student as that is mandatory to get admission in the foreign universities. These tests can be undertaken online and proficiency certificates can be obtained from these agencies conducting these tests online. I would suggest you to go to some site like IELTS or TOEFL and find out the details there. Once you visit a particular university site then all the information would be available there right from applying to migration modalities. The fee structure also would be seen for a particular course available in the university. Anyway, these are some general points to be understood before proceeding in this direction. Some of the good universities where one can try to get admission are as follows -

    1. University of Hull, UK:
    This is one of the renowned university in UK. It is also known as a good place for conducting research for those who have interest in advanced academic pursuits. They have industry affiliation also and can provide jobs to some of the meritorious students. The fee is about Rs 14 lakhs per year.

    2. University of Sheffield, UK:
    This is another good one in UK. It has a history of providing education to many foreign students as many choose it due to it's friendly environment. Fee is about Rs 19 lakh per year.

    3. University of Delaware, USA:
    It is an old university and as per a survey in 2019 it is ranked as 38 among the top public universities. It's engineering courses are well reputed. The annual fee is of the order of Rs 26 lakhs.

    4. Virginia Commonwealth University, USA:

  • There are several prominent universities in abroad providing you quality education in the field of Chemical Enginnering. At this moment, you have passed out the diploma - course in the Chemical Engineering stream and at least, you need to acquire the Bachelor- level of Engineering in the said branch.
    I am enclosing a few reputed universities which can provide you better quality education apart from the personnel guidance of the professors. Some of the topmost universities imparting quality education in the area of Chemical- Engineering are listed below-
    1) Massaschusetts Institute of Technology. United States
    2) University of California. United States
    3) Stanford University United States
    4) Oxford University. UK
    5) National University of Singapore. Singapore
    6) Imperial College of London. UK
    7) University of Tokyo Japan
    8) Kyoto University. Japan
    9) Technical University, Munich Germany
    10) Technical University, Berlin. Germany
    However, you need to have detailed informations relating to fee - structure, no of seats available for the candidates other than their nationals, course - content, scholarships etc.
    You may contact the Indian embassies located in the countries as mentioned above so as to get relevant inputs. Moreover, you may go to the University - sites of such universities for updating the latest inputs in such directions .
    Mark the date when you have to appear for either IELTS test or the TOEFL test. The test is conducted on line mode or otherwise to assess the profeciancy level of the candidates in the different sections set in the question- paper apart from sound familiarity in English.
    However, I would recommend you to go in for the courses of Chemical- Enginnering taught in Germany because of the following reasons -
    1) The tution- fee is quite affordable and cheaper than other countries.
    2) The professors are well qualified in the subjects being taught by them and are interested to wipe out your confusions arising out of day - today studies in the subjects.
    3) You will be provided the job oppurtunities in the Germany providing you decent emoluments as compared to our country.
    4) While studying in India in the branch of Chemical - Enginnering, to get a job of your satisfaction is nearly impossible in the present situation but in Germany, they do have lot of industries relating to Petrochemical, Rubber, Fertiliser- industries etc which will provide you job instantenously once you acquire your degree.
    The essential condition to be admitted in Germany needs the fulfilment of the following criteria-
    1) IELTS score
    2) Good grade in the qualifying examination
    3) Proficiency in the German Language.

  • Chemical Engineering Diploma holders can go for a degree course. There are many universities in India where you will find a very good Chemical Engineering Department.

    1. Department of Chemical Engineering, Mumbai University, Mumbai is an excellent Department for a chemical engineering study, This is regarded as the number one school for chemical engineering in India.
    2. IIT, Mumbai
    3. IISc, Bangalore
    4. BITS Pilani
    5. Andhra University, Visakhapatnam.

    I suggest that these days it is wise to study in the above institutions instead of going abroad. This is my opinion. However, you can try the following institutions abroad.
