Looking into the rapid change in the global industry environment, Department of Chemical Engineering at BITS Pilani, Hyderabad campus is determined to nurture new talents and create leaders and entrepreneurs who can bring high-level value addition to the Chemical and Allied industries. Our mission is to drive excellence in Chemical Engineering education and training thereby leading to the creation of a common platform for connecting academia and industry in the exchange of knowledge.

Chemical Engineering department comprises highly experienced and qualified faculty who have received PhDs/Postdocs from IIT’s or universities abroad. The Department offers robust programs in three tiers of Chemical Engineering i.e Bachelors (B.E Honors), Masters (M.E) and Ph.D. We also train our students in doing research in thrust areas as part of the curriculum. We have well-equipped state of the art laboratories for students to gain extensive practical knowledge. Our B.E students have been placed in reputed companies such as Shell, Honeywell, etc. Our department has received funding for different projects from DST, BIRAC (DBT), CSIR, ABSTC Mumbai, DRDO and BITS Pilani. Because of our close association with Industry, we invite experts to deliver talks to our students. We organise industrial trips every semester apart from 7.5 months of practice school training. Our faculty are also involved in teaching courses for Industry Professionals under the Work Integrated Learning Program (WILP).
