What is Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering deals with the design, development of processes and operation of machines and plants through which the physical or chemical state of materials undergo various changes. Founded on the principles relating to chemistry, physics, and mathematics, Chemical Engineering finds application in process industries. BE/B.Tech in Chemical Engineering is a 4-year program. Developments in chemical practices have led to more advanced fields like Nanotechnology, Bio-Engineering, Bio-Molecular Engineering, Material processing etc. It finds global application in everyday life. Modern innovations like human genome project, genetic engineering, and DNA sequencing has changed the face how chemical engineering was earlier perceived. One can do an M.Tech in Chemical Engineering after BE/B.Tech.

Eligibility Criteria (UG & PG) of Chemical Engineering

  • For UG: Candidates must have passed 10+2 with minimum qualifying marks in aggregate with Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics as core subjects. Independent entrance tests for this programme are also held by the various state, central, and private universities which mostly require 50% as the prerequisite to appear for the test.
  • For PG: Candidates must hold a degree in Bachelor of Engineering/B.Tech along with a good score in entrance tests held for PG programme held by the various state, central, and private universities.

Dear aspirant,

Hope you are doing well. As per your query it totally depends on you and your interest. I am providing you with the pros and cons so that you will be able to have a better view of understanding. The pros are that it definitely does not goes to waste as the preference level of you getting hired compared to a normal candidate will be a bit high and also you will have greater job aspects. Also there is a difference in double and dual major. Be sure to know the consequences of both. The cons are that it will delay your graduation which will in turn will make you course more expensive. Hope you find this helpful. Thank you.

Hello, all branches are good the thing is that in  Computer Science, Information technology companies are more and placements are good as compared to other branches because tech companies give higher salary.
But, this also depends on students how much they can learn in which branch they are, also most importantly placements also depends on colleges if you have a good college you can take good placement otherwise you have to work very hard.
Here, are top Chemical engineering colleges in India
All IIT, NIT, Bits Mesra, Bits Pilani, Vit Vellore, Punjab University, ICT Mumbai, Hbtu Kanpur

So, if you are good in coding skills and can works with Cs/It branches then you can also take chemical engineering because many companies allow other branches students for their placement.

All the best. Hope this will help you.
