Conventionally, the Chemical Engineering is the stream of engineering that aims to engineer chemical transformation of raw materials to useful products in economic and self-sustainable manner. Aligned with the mandate and vision with which the RGIPT has been established, the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering (CBE) at the RGIPT aims to train and produce experts with strong technical background and social commitment who will help the nation in meeting its energy demand in coming future. The Department of CBE, one of the unique departments in the country, manages activities, facilities, and curricula related to those Chemical Engineering fields supporting oil and gas sector in particular and energy sector in general, and enjoys a direct and synergistic interface with the industries in these sectors.

The Department of CEBE offers the following flagship BTech programs to train and produce professionals in oil & gas and energy sector:

  1. B Tech in Chemical Engineering
  2. B Tech in Renewable Energy Engineering (started from 2021-22 batch)
  3. B Tech in Chemical Engineering (Major: Petrochemicals and Polymers Engineering)

In addition to these, the Department also runs various MTech and PhD programs.

Our classroom teaching is focused towards enhancing the creativity and innovation. Being an institution with the domain area of oil, gas and energy, our curricula are markedly designed with a thrust on these particular areas.

The research in the Department is centered on areas such as petroleum refining, catalysis, CO2 capture, fuel cells, crystallization, microfluidics, process intensification, adsorption, membrane science, nanomaterials, and materials science.

The Department strongly encourages its faculty members and students to interface with the industry and seeks industrial participation and partnership in various activities.

The Department also organizes various student events, training programs and lecture series periodically, such as Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) Training Programs, Departmental Lecture Series, CheMinar Series. In addition lecture series related to American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Student Chapter and Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers (IIChE) Student Chapter are also organized periodically.
