The four semester M.Tech. program attracts approximately 40 students each year. The students are required to take a minimum of six courses, including two from mandatory streams- catalysis and reaction engineering, transport phenomena, thermodynamics, and mathematics or numerical methods. This is followed by six course units and a summer term of research. Mechanism exists for a student in master's program to transition to doctoral study in the department.
Admissions to the M.Tech program happens every summer, usually in the month of April-May. The notification for the same, for all departments, is posted on the institute webpage. Currently, the admissions are done solely on the basis of GATE scores. The eligibility for the MTech program are given in details in the PG manual of IITK.
|Department of chemical engineering offers several core and elective courses for the students enrolled in Ph.D., M.Tech. and M.S.(Research) programmes, below given minimum course requirements for different PG programmes.
|Minimum course requirement
|Minimum course requirement is six.
Two must be taken from the compulsory courses (ChE611, ChE621, ChE631),
one from (ChE641/ChE642), and the rest three can be taken from the list of electives.
Student may take another course from the compulsory basket as an elective.
|In addition to the usual courses, MS and MTech students are required to register for zero credit M.Tech. Seminar(ChE701) and Ph.D. students are required to register for zero credit Ph.D. Seminar(ChE801).
