  • Unit Operations and Unit Processes

Processing Engineering Economics and Plant Design Post graduates degrees such as Master of Science and Master of Research students must study:

  • Biotechnology
  • Fuel Science and Environmental Science
  • Inorganic and Organic Chemistry based Technologies
  • Instrumental Methods of Analysis
  • Food Processing
  • Fats and Oils
  • Water Treatment and Waste Recovery

Post-graduate research works are in progress in such fields as fuel sciences and technology, water and waste water processing, food science and tech nology. The Department offers postgraduate diploma course in Industrial Chemistry to graduatestudents leading to Masterof Science, Master of Researchand Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) degrees. The Department also offers Bachelor of Science (Engineering) courses in FoodTechnology and Cosmetic Technology under the HRD programme. Possible collaboration areas are as follows:
