M.Tech Programme in Chemical Engineering
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.
M.S (by research) Programme in Chemical Engineering
The department of Chemical Engineering offers its two year MS(R) Program specifically designed to provide specialized knowledge with the help of coursework and research to meet the ever-changing demands of both academia and R&D sector. The student has to take a minimum of four courses, and complete the remaining credit requirements in the form of both research and coursework credits.
Doctor Of Philosophy (Ph.D) Programme in Chemical Engineering
DURATION: 4-5 years
ADMISSION: Admission to the Ph. D. programme is generally made in both the semesters in a year, i.e., July and December. Selection is done through a written test followed by interview. Industries and research organizations may also sponsor a candidate for admission to the Ph. D. program. Course requirements: The students take a minimum of six courses to develop expertise in ChE fundamentals as well as to complement their research work.
RESEARCH: Post coursework (up to 1 year), students work on a research problem of their interest under the guidance of a faculty mentor(s). Working on a particular problem for 3-4 years is a unique experience that helps in developing a scientific temper along with the associated technical communication skills. The typical norm for graduation is 3- 4 publications in reputed peer reviewed journals. MHRD offers scholarships currently at ` 16-20,000 per month to full time Ph. D. students. Scholarships from research projects are also available
