Chemical Engineering is one of the oldest branches of Engineering. Chemical Engineering touches our daily lives directly or indirectly in many ways. This discipline plays active role in many sectors such as Pharmaceutical production, Food processing, Water purification, Sanitation, Textiles, Petrochemicals, Everyday materials (Rubber, Plastic, Polymers, Cleansing agents etc). Chemical Engineering is a multi-disciplinary branch of engineering that combines principle of natural and experimental sciences (such as chemistry and physics), along with life sciences (such as biology, microbiology and biochemistry) plus mathematics and economics to design, develop, produce, transform, transport, operate and manage the industrial processes. The work of chemical engineers can range from the utilisation of nano-technology and nano-materials in the laboratory to large-scale industrial processes that turn raw materials living cells, microorganisms, and energy into useful forms and products into valuable products. The processes within chemical engineering involve chemical reactions to create products and to investigate the mechanisms within chemical reactions. Chemical engineers then translate this chemical information to formulate designs. There are two broad subgroups that better defines “What is chemical engineering?” The first group deals with designing, manufacturing and operating plants and machinery for carrying out large-scale industrial chemical, biological or related processes and the second one is developing new or adapted substances for a wide range of products. Chemical engineers may also be specialized in one or the other subgroup, but work from both side will be required in order to create a final product. They will need to consider economic viability, management of resources, health and safety, sustainability and environmental impact.
The Vision of the department is to be a nationally recognized undergraduate Chemical Engineering program coupled with research strengths in progress , safety, applied thermodynamics, polymer, mineral processing and Bio – chemical Engineering.
The department is striving to fulfill its commitment in achieving excellence both in education & research provide high quality undergraduate education that will prepare them for leading roles in career in chemical engineering department & for the lifetimes of continued learning.

HOD- Chemical Department
Greetings from the SGDTP Polytechnic !!!!
It gives me immense pleasure to introduce you the department of Chemical Engineering. Our Institute is one of the leading institutions, unique like a prism reflecting the multiple shades of learning and co-curricular activities. SGDTP Polytechnic is striving hard towards the goal of providing innovative and quality education with high standard to achieve academic excellence. The department of Chemical engineering has dedicated and well qualified teaching faculty, best supporting technical staff and all are committed to impart excellent quality of technical education and nurture the students with multi-dimensional skill sets. The main focus of the department is on outcome based education and it can be achieved by adapting innovative pedagogy, Industry-Academic interaction and doing live projects etc. Each student is focused through a Mentor – Mentee Scheme where students are emphasized for good academics, placements and participation in co-curricular activities. The department preserves its achievements and publishes its all activities in Newsletter in every semester. I believe that my team consisting of students, staff and faculty is capable of doing wonders. I invite you to the Chemical Engineering Department whether you are looking for an undergraduate program. My team is confident that your stint with Chemical department will definitely make you outshine with a successful and accomplished career.
