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. After spending two years, a student in masterís program may transition to doctoral study in the department. Every year about 20 to 25 students are admitted to our doctoral program. A PhD student is required to complete at least six graduate level courses and qualify a comprehensive exam. Five to six students are awarded doctoral degree in chemical engineering each year.
