About Chemical Engineering Department
The department of chemical engineering set up in 1962, was the first of its kind in Kerala offering B. Tech degree in Chemical Engineering through a four year course. During the B.Tech course the students are given in depth understanding of the basic principles of engineering aided by well equipped and sophisticated equipments, by highly qualified and experienced faculty, enabling the student to groom into a professionally competent chemical engineer. Since the Govt. Engineering College Trichur is situated very near to the industrial areas of Cochin, Palakkad and Coimbatore; there is a close rapport between the industries, Government departments or agencies and the department of Chemical Engineering. A lot of industrial research and consultancy works are carried out by the faculty members, especially in the field of industrial pollution control, safety, energy and environment, much of which earned wide acclamation and received awards and recognitions. Live industrial problems were identified and given as project works for final year B.Tech. and M.Tech. students. The department is an approved Research centre under the University of Calicut and APJ Abdul Kalam Kerala Technological University. The core research areas of the department include water and wastewater treatment and Polymer Science and Engineering.
