About Dr. M.G.R Educational and Research Institute, Department of Chemical EngineeringThe Department of Chemical Engineering commenced its operations from June 1995. First priority was given to the development of various laboratories in such a way that each laboratory was functional at least one semester prior to the use by students. Such an approach was helpful to prepare the department to cater to the visits of inspection teams from AICTE, DTE and University of Madras periodically. The major laboratories developed are Physical Chemistry laboratory, Technical & Instrumental Analysis laboratory, Chemical Reaction Engineering laboratory, Mass Transfer laboratory and Mechanical Operations laboratory. Development of teaching staff from June 1995 to December 2001 was with an increase in intake of 3 to 9, with a permitted student intake of 40 (With 10% increase through Lateral Entry). The Department has graduated 132 B.Tech Chemical Engineering Graduates in 3 batches. Some of the graduates are involved to do M.S. or M.B.A in India and abroad. Others are working as process engineers in Chemical Plants, joined family business ventures or entered software qualifying areas.
