Since then it has made remarkable contributions in the field of Chemical Engineering and its alumni has occupied eminent positions in the industry, academic and research institutions in India as well as abroad. The first batch of Engineers came out in 1973. In 1983, the roots of Chemical Engineering Department became even stronger with the introduction of Post Graduate Programme. In addition to this, department has achieved remarkable milestone of NBA accreditation of five years for both PG and UG programme in 1998 due to its best performance at all stages and currently has 5-year NBA accreditation for the UG program (2008-2012).

Because of its excellent infrastructure, with reference to classrooms, laboratories and pilot plant equipments to help in research and development, the department has made a name for itself in the industrial sector. The curriculum of Chemical Engineering is continuously being modified and upgraded in accordance with the industrial requirements.

The IPCL library at the institute possesses a good collection of Chemical Engineering books, journals and periodicals which enables the students to keep track of the latest technological developments. This in turn has given a great impetus to them, hence leading to higher academic involvement. The support has further encouraged students to undergo rigorous work in the field of research.

In general, the academic pass out rate is 100 %, of which , 76 % are distinction holders and remaining first class holders. On an average, 10 % of the students are successful in GATE examinations.
