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

Hello Amaya,

Eligibility criteria for M.Tech Chemical

engineering -

Most institutes state minimum eligibility to be an undergraduate B.Tech degree in Chemical Engineering. - The Indian Institutes of Technology have the added eligibility criteria of a valid GATE score, which is only relaxed for those who have obtained their B.Tech from an IIT with a CGPA of more than 8.0/10 as well.

Note- Some institutes allow the equivalent forms of B.Tech in Chemical Engineering, such as  a B.E. in the same field.

Top institutes for M.Tech Chemical engineering -

1. Indian Institute of Technology , Bombay (Mumbai), Kanpur, Guwahati

2. Anna University , Chennai

3. Manipal Institute of Technology,  Udupi, Karnataka

4. Indian Institute of Space and Technology , Thiruvanathapuram, Kerala

Is there any possibility in IIT*s of INDIA level through LEET,lateral entry for chemical engineering,BE.Tech

Anantika Kushwaha 3rd Apr, 2020
Hello Akhil,

Sorry to say but IITs do not provide lateral entry provision. One has to appear and qualify JEE Advanced examination in order to get admission into IIT in 1st year only. No candidate can get direct admission in 2nd year through lateral entry provision.
