B.Tech. Chemical Engineering or Bachelor of Technology in Chemical Engineering is an undergraduate Chemical Engineering course. Chemical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the application of physical science (chemistry and physics), and life sciences (biology, microbiology and biochemistry) with mathematics and economics, to the process of converting raw materials or chemicals into more useful or valuable forms. In addition to producing useful materials, modern chemical engineering is also concerned with pioneering valuable new materials and techniques such as nanotechnology, fuel cells and biomedical engineering. Chemical engineering largely involves the design, improvement and maintenance of processes involving chemical or biological transformations for large-scale manufacture. The duration of the course is four years but it may be more or less than this depending on institute’s regulations.

B.Tech. Chemical Engineering Eligibility

  • For B.Tech. (Chemical Engineering) program minimum eligibility is an intermediate (10+2) with subjects such as Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry.

B.Tech. Chemical Engineering Course Suitability

  • Those who have strong technical ability and high motivation, excellent analytical, communication and teamwork skills, hardworking, good at organizing and solving problems are the most suitable for it.
  • Second, who feel comfortable to work with tools, drawing sketches of complex things and operations, and conceptualizing forms and structures also are capable for the course.
  • Good computer skill is also essential as they use computer technology to optimize all phases of research and production.

How is B.Tech. Chemical Engineering Course Beneficial?

  • Over the years with the great expansion of scientific knowledge, the basis of applying science particularly chemistry to develop technology has increased tremendously. This has led to the development of the profession of chemical Engineering.
  • Chemical Engineering is the apt career for those who have an aptitude and interest to work with chemicals. However Chemical Engineering is different from chemical technology. The former is concerned with the designing, supervision, construction, installation and operation of plants and equipments for manufacturing chemical products and developing new methods of production while the latter deals with the actual production of substances with new properties which require new methods of production in the fields of petroleum refining, fertilizer technology, processing of food and agricultural products, paints and dyes; recycling metals, glass and plastics; cosmetics, mineral based industries and prevention and control of environmental hazards.
  • Chemical Engineering involves the design and maintenance of chemical plants and the development of chemical processes for converting raw materials or chemicals into valuable forms including those to remove chemicals from waste materials, to enable large-scale manufacture. It combines knowledge of Chemistry and Engineering to produce chemicals and related by-products. This branch of engineering is a varied field, covering areas from biotechnology and nanotechnology to mineral processing. It covers various fields of chemical technology in mineral based industries, petrochemical plants, pharmaceuticals, synthetic fibres, petroleum refining plants etc. Chemical engineers design and operate chemical plants and improve methods of production. 
  • The work of Chemical Engineers involves the invention, development, design, operation and management of processes in industries. So, they combine the work of several fields such as those of chemists, industrial engineers, materials engineers as well as electrical engineers. Chemical engineers are responsible for the availability of modern high-quality materials that are essential for running an industrial economy. They design equipments and operate chemical plants as well as determine the problems and find the best methods of production.
  • The scope for chemical engineers is tended to grow in future due to industrial expansion and the related scarcity of resources needed. They may be demand as they work to create synthetic replacements for those natural materials and resources that are in short supply. Overall chemical engineers could make very important contributions for the improvement and maintenance of the quality of life.
