Diploma Petro Chemical Engineering



The Diploma course in Petro Chemical Engineering focuses on imparting theoretical and practical knowledge in design, development, operation and maintenance of processes involving Petro Chemical Engineering & Technology. The department places an emphasis on nurturing the innovative ability of students.

About the department

Petro Chemical engineering is one of the finest branches of engineering which deals with the production of chemicals, bio chemicals, nonmaterial, fuel cell and etc. Petro Chemical engineering course mainly involves design of chemical manufacturing equipments like reactors, distillation, absorption and extraction columns using computer software. In addition, safety and environmental pollution control also are being dealt. The chemical engineering diploma graduates have got good opportunity in chemical industries, research organization, food and bio chemicals and other related industries like paints, polymers, pharmaceuticals and etc.

The Diploma in Petro Chemical Engineering course as part time here was started in the academic year of 1989-1990 and it was upgraded as full time course in the academic year of 1994-1995.
