On behalf of our faculty, staff, and students, I welcome to the Department of Chemical Engineering at Chaitanya Bharathi Institute of Technology (CBIT) website! The Department of Chemical Engineering at CBIT was established in 1995. By all accounts, CBIT is doing very well.  CBIT was ranked 124 by the National Institute Ranking Framework (NIRF) in 2020. It was ranked 36 in Outlook India’s “Top 100 Engineering Colleges in 2019”. In the twin states of Telangana and AndhraPradesh, CBIT is ranked number 1.

I hope that you learn more about chemical engineering program as you navigate the site.

Chemical engineers develop and design processes in which material and energy inputs are converted into value-added products through chemical, physical, biological transformations with the help of digitalization. Chemical engineers apply the principles of chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics, guided by the principles of economics, safety and environmental protection for the welfare of community.

Chemical engineers are innovative, creative and critical thinkers with versatile problem-solving skills.  Chemical engineers are team players,  working in consultation with inter- and multi-disciplinary teams of professionals, chemical engineers define problems, determine objectives, plan and conduct research, and then design, develop, and implement computerized and controlled processes for product manufacturing. Chemical engineering is a diverse discipline which adapts to the changing needs of society, also referred to as universal engineering.

We offer Bachelor in Chemical Engineering degree program at three levels with honors, regular and minor. Our undergraduate program is internationally renowned for high-quality classroom-based education in conjunction with practical work experience. CBIT Department of Chemical Engineering trains our students to be proactive participants in chemical engineering for community and dynamic leaders for our ever evolving world.

Chemical Engineering profession has placed graduates of chemical engineers in different positions, spanning over the broad areas of digital (the process of converting process data into a digital, computer-readable form) world, consumer products, plastics, chemicals, bio molecular and biochemical engineering, biotechnology, fuel, food technology, nanotechnology, alternative energy, and petrochemicals, both domestically and internationally. More recently, our graduate students are placed in top companies such as Takeda Pharmaceuticals, Waters, Pfizer, and Sanofi, to apply their research training to consumer and healthcare products.

Our department scholarship is focused on Green engineering and technology which encompasses (E4) Environmentally benign, Economically efficient, Energy efficient, and Equity oriented technology for the sustainable planet earth. These niche areas of study provide immense opportunities for undergraduate trainees to have an impact on advancing renewable energy, eco-friendly environment, providing quality healthcare, and developing green chemistry for economically efficient processes and products for industry.

We have hired a highly accomplished and diverse faculty. Our faculty is recognized for their research and educational impact through their experiential skills. They are members of a variety of professional organizations. Our department is exponentially growing by leaps and bounds and our impact in chemical engineering education and research is poised for continual growth in the years ahead.

It is a great time to be a graduate of Chemical Engineer from the CBIT department of chemical engineering. We have recently had a successful accreditation visit for our undergraduate degree program and acquired a six-year renewal with the National Board of Accreditation (NBA). Our students’ Commitment makes them achieve Excellence as they are Motivated by the efficient faculty (E= M C2).

Our department tagline “We bring Chemical Engineering into Life” tells the motto and story of Chemical Engineering department.
