The department of Chemical Engineering is one of the newer courses offered at Agni College of Technology which was introduced in the academic year 2016-2017. Currently, the department offers the undergraduate program in B.Tech Chemical Engineering.
As the link between science and manufacturing, this popular branch of engineering calls for the application and integration of knowledge in Chemistry to Principles of Engineering for large-scale production on chemicals. Designing equipment, planning and evaluation of production and treatment of by-products, process development for large-scale chemical manufacture amongst others are the various areas that Chemical Engineers will be involved in.
The industry scope for Chemical Engineers encompasses a wide variety including chemicals, bio-chemicals, petroleum and petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, food preservation, electronic materials, energy and environment to list a few.
The undergraduate program in B. Tech Chemical Engineering provides the students a strong foundational knowledge in Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics atop engineering sciences. The students of the department are taken through the application of Fundamentals of Chemical Engineering, Process Reactions, Heat Transfer Behavior, Instruments of Process and Chemical Industry and other associated domains of Chemical Engineering. It also focuses on handling, analyzing, monitoring the properties and processing of a wide variety of materials such as chemicals, compounds, pastes, petroleum derivatives, mining ores, pharmaceuticals, gas products and more.
Agni College’s undergraduate programin B. Tech Chemical Engineering equipsstudents to become Chemical Engineers well-suited for the increasing demands of modern Chemical Industry.
Agni College is one of the Top chemical engineering colleges in Chennai under Anna University.
