The Department of “Chemical Engineering” with well qualified faculty provides high standard of education in the diversified fields of Chemical Engineering. The Department has immense strength in the area of Polymer Engineering. The Department received national recognition by winning the Gold Trophy for Plasticon Award 2012 in the category of Best Educational Institution Contributing to Plastics. The Plasticon Award was conferred on 1st February 2012, at 8th International Plastics Exhibition and conference. The programme was supported by Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals, Government of India. Faculty members are working on sponsored projects and collaborative research with various organizations. The Department is also recognized under DST-FIST.

The Department has modern and sophisticated laboratories and workshop facilities such as Chemical Engineering Unit Operation laboratory, Chemical Reaction Engineering Laboratory, Process Control Laboratory, Synthesis Laboratory, Energy Engineering Laboratory, Polymer Characterization Laboratory etc. The Department has excellent facilities in  Polymer Processing Workshop and Product Development Laboratory including mould design and manufacturing facility. The various materials Characterization facilities include Instron Universal Testing Machine, Rigaku wide angle X-Ray diffractometer, ATLAS accelerated weathering testing system, HAAKE Rheometers.  The Product Development facilities include MCP HEK vacuum casting system for prototyping, and Stratasys Fused Deposition Modelling system rapid prototyping. The students are trained in various CAE applications in the field of product and process design with various software such as ASPEN PLUS, Accelerys, Material Studio for molecular simulation, MATLAB, PROENGINEER, ANSYS, CATIA, FLUENT, POLYFLOW, and MOLDFLOW.

There are several Projects sponsored by DRDL, DST, Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Coir Board etc. to the credit of the Department. Major research areas are:  Nanotechnology, Advanced Polymer Composites, Alternative Energy, Bioresources Utilization,  Pollution Control, Water Treatment Technologies, Polymer Blends and Interpenetrating Polymer Networks, Nano filtration Membrane, Recycling of Polymer Waste, Specialty Polymer, Colloids and Interfacial Science, Tissue Engineering, Sensors, Fuel Cell Membrane.

The Department also coordinates activities of “Design Development and Training Centre in Plastics Engineering”, a joint venture of Department of Industries, Government of Jharkhand and BIT Mesra.  The Centre conducts short and long term courses in Polymer Processing, Quality Control, CAE, etc. Apart from manpower development the Centre provides consultancy and testing facilities to the plastics industries. The Department also conducted Integrated Industrial Training Programmes in a plastics processing industry Amiantit Oman, at Muscat, Sultanate of Oman.
