Welcome to the Department of Chemical Engineering (ChE) at IIT Kanpur. ChE @IITK offers world-class undergraduate and graduate education, research opportunity, degree options, alumni network, and job opportunities. The Department of Chemical Engineering at IIT Kanpur ranks among the best in the nation and commands high respect nationally and internationally.

We at ChE@IIT Kanpur continue to thrive to provide one of the highest quality educational experiences. We, over several years, through the remarkable efforts of our outstanding faculty and students, are on the trajectory of excellence and are at the forefront of chemical engineering education, research, and socioeconomic impact in the region and the world. We take great pride in providing an intellectually stimulating environment; as a result, our Alumni continue to excel after graduation and distinguish themselves in both academia and industry, both within the country and abroad.

The department has a world-class facility for experimental research. In addition, the institute has built a supercomputing facility over the years, which ranks top in the country.
