With a B. Tech. programme intake of 60 students, the department of Chemical Engineering was founded in 1992. With an intake of 16 students each, the M.Tech programmes in Chemical Engineering and Environmental Engineering were started in 2000 and 2001, respectively. The department also began a Ph.D. programme in the 2003 - 2004 academic year, and it holds the distinction of having graduated the first Ph.D. in the University. The faculties in the department are a committed group. Most of the faculty members hold doctoral degrees. The department has worked in conjunction with ICT Mumbai to execute cutting-edge research initiatives. The department's main goal is to turn out top-notch engineers with solid chemical engineering fundamentals. The TEQIP programme, a quality improvement initiative supported by the World Bank, is one in which the department has taken an active part. Additionally, the department has received funding for a variety of research initiatives from AICTE, UGC, ONGC, and DST. To support the research programmes, the department has excellent analytical capabilities. At the conclusion of the second and third years of the B. Tech programme, the students must complete industrial exposure and training, respectively, in accordance with the curriculum requirements. To help students understand the theoretical aspects, the department also arranges industrial tours of adjacent chemical industries. The conferences, seminars, workshops, paper publishing, annual sports, and other events, all encourage students participation. With the assistance of the business community, the department and the Chemical Engineering Association (ChEA) routinely host "Chemfraternity," a state-level technical festival. The Department of Chemical Engineering is one of the most preferred destinations in the state of Maharashtra.
Vision The vision of the department is to get national recognition for undergraduate Chemical Engineering program coupled with research strengths in the areas of Heat Transfer, Systems Engineering, Mass Transfer with Chemical Reactions and Biochemical Engineering.
Mission We provide a high-quality education experience that will prepare graduate to assume leadership positions within chemical and other associated industries. We foster and encourage the pursuit of new knowledge and innovative scholarship in chemical sciences and engineering. We provide leadership to the chemical engineering profession through dedicated teaching and service.
Quality policy: Committed to imparting quality education by student cantered teaching, learning training and placement process to achieve student in all endeavour leading to degrees in engineering and Management. To remain accountable in our core and support function, through continual improvement and meeting applicable requirements.
Dr. A. R. Chavan
Professor and Head
It is my pleasure to introduce the Department of Chemical Engineering at the main campus of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Technological University, Lonere.
The Department is focused to impart quality technical education to the students so that they will be ready to serve the chemical and allied industries. For better prospects in professional life, we aim to get Industry-sponsored internships and projects for our B. Tech and M. Tech students.
The department works to provide students with an excellent education while also instilling a positive culture in them. Because of this, the department's graduates do incredibly well in both the workplace and academics.
For their graduate studies and professional careers, the Department offers a variety of guidance. The students are given GATE and other competitive exam guidance. During Chemfraternity, students get valuable experience organizing various activities. The department is particularly eager to host professional talks for the students by inviting distinguished speakers from IITs, ICTs, NITs, and from industries. The department maintains a good working relationship with the adjacent industries at Patalganga, Mahad, Roha, and Lote-parshuram.
In order to help all of the students develop fully in the field of chemical engineering and to better equip them to meet difficulties on a global scale, the department will continue to assist and encourage them.
Advisory Board: To provide guidance to the department, advisory Board has been constituted. The Advisory Council/ Board is entrusted with responsibility of conducting academic audit of department, suggesting dynamic curriculum and providing input for research activities.
