    • Chemical Reaction Lab
      The heart of many chemical engineering operations is the chemical reactor. This laboratory offers team-based and student-defined projects investigating reaction engineering problems in areas of interest within the chemical industy. To enhance the practical knowledge of industrial application of chemical reaction engineering a number of reactor like CSTR, Plug flow reactor, batch reactor, sono chemical reactor, photo chemical reactor etc are available in this laboratory.
    • Computer Applications & Simulation
      Computer lab helps students to understand C programming in applications of Chemical Engineering like Designing of a Reactor, Heat Exchangers, Distillation Column,Absorption column,etc and it also consists of Simulation package “Aspen Hysys” .Computer simulations use some algorithms from purely mathematical models, computers can combine simulations with reality or actual events, such as generating input responses, to simulate test subjects who are no longer present. The system they use could be the actual equipment, revealing performance limits or defects in long-term use by these simulated users.
    • Heat transfer Lab
      Heat Transfer Laboratory helps the students to understand the basic concepts of heat transfer: Conduction, Convection and Radiation which are the three basic modes for heat transfer to take place.

    TECH-SAS Club

    Want to be efficient engineers “engineered for tomorrow”? - start working from today. The club “TECH-SAS” is a Technical Departmental club under the Department of Chemical Engineering.

    This club was inaugurated on 8/11/2015 by Mr. Arjun Bhattacharya, India Technology leader for GE power, Bangalore. Motto: To provide a platform to bring academic knowledge into actions with asprinkle of innovation and fun. It’s also an effort to update the older and outdatedtechniques with better engineering trends. Apart from the regular Academics this club conducts the Fun and Technical events periodically throughout the year, taking into consideration of all the Different Departments and Different Semester Students the event will be decided. After the Inauguration of the Club events named Pollut-o-graphy, Scrapuzzle has been conducted.
