Department of Chemical Engineering
In line with the mission and vision of Shiv Nadar Institution of Eminence, the Department of Chemical engineering focusses on imparting quality education programs aligned with the evolving demands of the industry and R&D sectors. Our uniquely structured curriculum is derived from rigorous collaborative efforts between our esteemed faculty and industry experts. The academic programs that we offer are:
- Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech.) in chemical engineering,
- Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech.) in chemical engineering with a specialization in biochemical engineering, and
- Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in chemical engineering.
Our holistic program has core areas in fluid mechanics, chemical reaction engineering, thermodynamics, separation processes, heat & mass transfer, process control, process engineering design, process engineering & safety. As per the university provisions, undergraduate students additionally have a unique opportunity to engage in research through the Opportunity of Undergraduate Research (OUR) program. This is not merely an academic exercise but a journey of exploration, sparking intellectual curiosity and fostering a deepened understanding of the subject.
Our student society House of Habers (H2O) routinely organises interactions, fun
games and activities within UG/PG students and faculty. The department also has an active technical society and an Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers (IIChE) student chapter. These platforms cultivate technical, and managerial skills through regular sessions. Overall, the Department of Chemical Engineering at Shiv Nadar IoE seamlessly amalgamates fun, teaching, and research moulding the industry-ready professionals of tomorrow.
The Department of Chemical Engineering has 7 well-equipped laboratories for teaching and training undergraduate students, including Unit Operations Lab, Mass Transfer Lab, Chemical Reaction Engineering Lab, Process Control Lab, and Chemical Engineering Computational Labs.
The Department of Chemical Engineering has 10 well-experienced faculty members conducting research on a diverse range of areas and engage in both academic and industrial collaborations.
Our department currently focuses on fundamental and applied research across several critical areas such as biomass conversion engineering, microfluidics engineering, polymer and sustainability, molecular modelling and simulations, reaction engineering, advanced separation processes, and energy & environment sustainability. It reflects upon the diversity and depth of the research pursuits.
The Department of Chemical Engineering houses advanced research laboratories such as Biomass Conversion Lab, Microfluidics Lab, Sustainability & Polymer Lab, Energy & Environmental Sustainability Lab, Intencity Lab, Soft Matter Lab, Polymer Materials Research Lab, Computational & Theoretical Soft Matter Lab, and Waste to Wealth Lab, which are fitted with cutting edge infrastructure to support and invigorate our research environment
