CHEMICAL ENGINEERING

Welcome to Chemical Engineering !!


Chemical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with chemical production and the manufacture of products through chemical processes. This includes designingequipment, systems and processes for refining raw materials and for mixing, compounding and processing chemicals to make valuable products.

George E. Davis, an English engineer, is credited with founding the field of chemical engineering in the late 19th century.

About the Department:

Chemical engineers apply the principles of chemistry, biology, physics and math to solve problems that involve the production or use of chemicals, fuel, drugs, food and many other products.

Chemical engineering branch started in 2008 in L.E. College Morbi with intake 60 students. During early stage two faculty members were posted to look after teaching and administrative work of chemical engineering dept. Presently 8 teaching staff and 4 non-teaching staff are in the department and 4 labs are in the department. New building for chemical engineering department will be available soon So far 3 batches have been passed out.

Vision:

To emerge and to be known as hub of excellence in Chemical Engineering and Technology for the current needs and future development through teaching-learning, research, innovations, knowledge sharing while protecting the environmental and human values.

Mission:

To create competent Chemical Engineering Professionals to cater to the contemporary needs of the industry and profession for the betterment of the society and environment. Develop students as outstanding chemical engineering professionals and enable them to take up any challenge with highest ethical standards. The students and the faculties should be able to contribute to the society by improving quality of life with ethics and values.

Labs


Failed to connect to mysqli: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.
The main objective of this experiments are  to study the basic mechanical operation (crushing, grinding, screening, filtration, etc.) takes place during the process in chemical industry. It also provides platform to study and analyze various properties associated with the solid when it is in flow condition. This experiment provides the fundamental knowledge regarding to particle size reduction and enlargement by various methods and also deals with the detail construction & working of equipment’s used for mechanical operations.
The main objective of these experiments is to study the basics of heat transfer takes place during the process in industry. This experiments provides knowledge regarding to the basic modes and aspects of heat transfer process as well as it also provides an idea about various equipment used for heat transfer.
The objective of this experiments are  to study the principles of mass transfer and their application to separation and purification processes. The experiments integrate fluid dynamics and thermodynamics and proceeds to develop rate expressions for mass transfer in gases, liquids and solids.

The objective of this experiments are to apply the principles of mass transfer operations to specific applications, separation and/or purification processes. The goal is to provide students with the theoretical/analytical aspects to design mass transfer equipments and to deal with complex problems of separations.

This experiments introduces concepts of reaction rate, derivation of rate expressions from reaction mechanism, ideal reactor types, integral method of analysis, differential method of analysis, principles of chemical reactor analysis and design, experimental determination of rate equations, design of batch and continuous reactors, how to choose the most appropriate reactor for a given feed, optimization of selectivity in multiple reactions, consideration of temperature and pressure effects, etc.

In this experiments emphasis is on heterogeneous reaction engineering and non-ideal reactors, catalysis, leading finally to design considerations. The experiments deals with residence time distributions, and how they can be used to characterize and design non-ideal reactors. Kinetics and design of reactors for non-catalytic fluid-fluid and fluid-particle reactions follows. 

These experiments explain dynamic processes and the engineering tasks of process operations and control. Experiments covers modeling the static and dynamic behavior of processes; control strategies; design of feedback, feed forward, and other control structures; and applications to process equipment.
These experiments explain various properties of petroleum products, the petroleum industry includes the global processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transporting (often by oil tankers and pipelines), and marketing petroleum products. The largest volume products of the industry are fuel oil and gasoline (petrol). Petroleum (oil) is also the raw material for many chemical products, including pharmaceuticals, solvents, fertilizers, pesticides, and plastics. The industry is usually divided into three major components: upstream, midstream and downstream. Midstream operations are usually included in the downstream category.

Now a day’s computers are useful for handling various chemical plants, so that knowledge of computer is must in this era and C is one of the foundations for modern information technology (IT) and computer science (CS). Many working principles of IT and CS, such as programming languages, computer architectures, operating systems, network communication, database, graphical user interface (GUI), graphics, image processing, parallel processing, multi-threads, real-time systems, device drivers, data acquisition, algorithms, numerical analysis, and computer game, are based on or reflected in the functionalities and features of C. The experience in C will help students understand the working principles of these important concepts in IT and CS. Therefore, C is required for the CS major in almost all universities.
Chemical Engineering has to do with industrial processes in which raw materials are processed and separated into the useful products. The behavior of fluids is important to process engineering and constitutes one of the foundations for the study of the unit operations.
