Department of Chemical Engineering, established in 1984, holds a place of pride and is amongst the most reputed departments of Bharati Vidyapeeth (Deemed to be University) College of Engineering, Pune. It is the oldest department in the Pune region which offers undergraduate, postgraduate as well as doctoral degree. The department is accredited continuously in three cycles in 2004, 2011 and 2017 by National Board of Accreditation (NBA). It is known for its valuable contribution in providing high caliber, outstanding professionals to the industry and research organizations. Highly qualified and experienced faculty of the department has constantly endeavored to improve academic standards and searched for better tools to impart advanced knowledge and best practices in Chemical Engineering to the students. Computer education and industrial training is an integral part of our studies. Our laboratories are well equipped with sophisticated instruments and relevant research facilities.

Research funding of Rs. 93.8 lakh have been received by the department from Department of Science and Technology (DST), Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (TEQIP), and Bharati Vidyapeeth (Deemed to be University) in last five years. Department has excellent industry- Institute interaction resulted in liaison with 247 industries. Faculty members and students have published 84 research articles in peer reviewed journals, filed 03 patents, and average placement is of 71.67 % in last five years. The department has consistently won accolades in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities such as technical presentations in conferences and competitions, sports and cultural programs at state and national levels. We are a part of IIChE-student’s chapter, through which we arrange various programmes to enhance the possibilities of such interactions.
