M. Tech. Chemical Engineering (Integrated with Optional PhD)

Details

The M.Tech. Chemical Engineering is an industry-oriented program, training students in chemical process development and design. The students, as part of the curriculum, go for one year of industrial projects where they receive immense industrial experience. They will be provided hands-on training and skills in Process Automation, Advanced Process Control, Process Optimisation etc., which will make them industry ready. We also have an MoU with Grasim Industries - Aditya Birla Ltd. - for the M.Tech. industrial project/internship program.

UPES’ curriculum framework is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. Along with the core subject, students have the option to choose from subject-focused specialisations. They are also allowed to choose minor/exploratory subject from other schools at UPES that are: School of Engineering, School of Computer Science, School of Law, School of Business, School of Health Sciences, School of Design, School of Modern Media, and School of Liberal Studies.

Further, based on the multifaceted needs of the global workplace and evolving lifestyles, the curriculum offers Signature and Life-Skills courses through School for Life. To round off this learning experience, students are required to do mandatory internships in the social sector, government/public sector, and industry. The combinations available for students to pick and choose from are endless, ensuring both depth and width of knowledge.
