About Us

The Department of Petrochemical Engineering was started to render services to the student community to meet as the global industrial expectations. The department is well equipped with various laboratories with modern sophisticated equipments. The branch of Petrochemical Engineering deals with the Petrochemical processes for manufacturing of different products, designing of equipment, fundamental understanding and the technology of petroleum and petrochemicals, polymers, resins, fibers and many other products. The department has the state-of-art laboratory equipped with the required experimental facilities. The Petrochemical Engineering graduates get good opportunity in various industries such as chemicals, petroleum and petrochemicals.

The B.E in Petrochemical Engineering is a focused program designed to understand and solve many industries such as refinery, on/off shore plant and petrochemical industrial related chemical problems. The curriculum has been so designed that it gives a balanced version of theoretical knowledge in various core and electives of this field in addition to courses in humanities, basic science and also practical knowledge.

We strive to provide a hands-on training to students with our sophisticated laboratories. We conduct various technical development programs, workshops, and motivational courses through department Association, as well as faculty development programs in association with renowned institution in the State.
