The department offers full-time and part-time Doctoral program in Chemical Engineering. The admission of research scholars into PhD program is based on the performance in GATE/ISM JRF written test and technical interview conducted every semester.
The objective of doctoral program is to impart quality education and train research scholars in conducting independent research. Each scholar, after joining the department would be associated with a faculty member. The progress of the research work of each scholar is monitored every semester by the departmental research committee.
The primary outcomes expected out of a PhD work would be publications in journals of international repute and award of patents, etc. The scholars are also encouraged to participate in national and international conferences so as to obtain feedback on their work, showcase their research work and develop professional contacts.
