student strength and better utilization of financial resources the score improved from 68.36 to 72.11 

In “Research and Professional Practice” there is a substantial increase from 46.64 to 50.04,due to 
surge in number of publications and improvement in the quality of  publications.The Institute gave a strong push to Intellectual Property Rights and filing of patents and this proved to be a game changer in improving this parameter.In ‘Graduation Outcome, the score showed considerable improvement from 72.76 to 74.71, with increase in placement and the median salary offered to graduates and the number of  Ph.D. scholars graduated.


The Institute has good infrastructure in place, however due to the increased need for research and increase in student strength, we are in the process of creating new infrastructure. Hence, to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of the Department of Chemical Engineering, a new
