We also encourage our students to gain real-world engineering experience through industrial visits & projects etc.. Moreover, our graduate course offers exciting and multi-disciplinary opportunities for students to research and explore. Students at IIST get excellent opportunities to work alongside their advisors. IIST has state-of-the-art teaching tools and smart ICT resources. The department also offers specializations in different areas to its undergraduate students as well.
A graduate of the Chemical Engineering Program will demonstrate:
Ability to analyze different physical, chemical and biological systems/processes by applying the knowledge of unit operations and unit processes.
Ability to automate and control processes/systems by designing an environment friendly system for effective reaction, separation and purification and other operations in various processes with proper safety measures using modern engineering tools and simulators
Ability to acquire high end industry centric skills in the field of Chemical Engineering with professional ethics for the benefit of society.
Chemical Engineers are responsible for developing new industrial processes and designing new process plants and equipment or modifying existing ones. The role of chemical engineers is to design and troubleshoot the production processes through process automation, waste and energy management. They are often employed by large scale manufacturing plants to increase productivity and product quality while reducing costs. Along with the production industries and technical advancements, demand of skill graduate engineers is also increasing. In the view of this demand, our department has constituted 7 SIG’s for the students. In which they will get the
opportunity to upgrade their skills according to their interest.
1) SIG- Computational Analysis Techniques
Students are trained in high level critical and creative thinking skills. With the help of SPSS and EXCEL software they can solve chemical industries numerical problems with the ease.
2) SIG- Process & Instrumentation Design
Students will learn about the operations of various instruments used in the chemical industries, how to read and draft piping and instrumentation diagrams which is the very crucial step in any process industry. With the help of AutoCAD P&ID software and EXCEL students will able to do piping design like line sizing for liquid, gas and fluid mixtures.
3) SIG- Clean Energy
Through this SIG students will get knowledge about renewable energy technologies like Fuel Cell, Solar cells, Bio Energy etc., Live models will be prepared for domestic and Industrial purpose.
4) SIG- Process Integration with Pinch Technology
Students will learn about the “Systematic and general methods for designing integrated production systems, ranging from individual processes to total sites with special emphasis on the efficient use of energy and reducing environmental effects”. The main aim of this SIG is to teach students how to reduce the operating cost of existing plants, while new processes often can be designed with reduction in both investment cost and operating cost. Hands on training on MATLAB, CHEMCAD, ASPEN EDR-HTRI, ASPEN HYSIS, AFT Fathom, DWSIM software.
5) SIG- Industrial safety Management
This SIG aims in designing and operation of safe and cost-effective processes. Student will be educated about personal protective equipment, fire safety, hazardous materials and their symbols. Students will gain insights to recognize the importance of a safe work environment with live Industrial training.
6) SIG- AI/Machine Learning in Process Industries:
Students will able to adopt Machine Learning / AI techniques in chemical industries, like statistical machine learning, evolutionary computation in petroleum product characterization, chemical change modeling and process optimization, decision-making, environmental perception, and digital troubleshooting of varied problems within the industry. Coding skills will be given by PYTHON software
7) SIG- Nano Technology for waste management
Under this SIG student will able to learn state of the art techniques used in waste management like Nanotechnology and using smart polymers. Skills will be developed in synthesis and characterization techniques like XRD, FT-IR, SEM , UV Spectroscopy, HPLC, Gas Chromatography.

Welcome to the exciting world of Chemical Engineering! The Department of Chemical Engineering was started in the year 2012 In Indore Institute of Science & Technology, Indore. Chemical Engineers take a unique view of processes – they have the ability to look at processes which convert raw materials into useful products – both from an overall perspective, determining the economic feasibility of such conversion processes, but also from a very fundamental perspective, where the role and behaviour of specific components participating in these processes are studied in detail. This is what makes Chemical Engineering unique and relevant. Our students are exposed to practical problems through the department’s well equipped laboratories including Software Laboratory for advanced computation and simulation using software like CHEMCAD, AFT Fathom, AutoCAD P&ID, and MATLAB etc.
Industrial tours and in-plant training are organized in reputed chemical plants for our B.Tech Students every semester to link smart classroom teaching with chemical plant operation. Variety of workshops and guest lectures on advanced/emerging topics in Chemical Engineering are also organized for students. Reputed firms visit our campus to recruit the graduating engineers. Chemical Engineers are at the forefront of technology and their role in modern society is becoming increasingly important. Chemical Engineering Department at IIST takes pride in nurturing high quality Chemical Engineering professionals for fruitful engagement in industry, research and academics. I trust that you will find Chemical Engineering as interesting, challenging and relevant as many others before you have.
