Department of Chemical Engineering


GIET University emphasises on promoting cutting edge research work and also its publication. The research areas include not only the classical areas of Chemical Engineering but also the modern challenging areas. Emphasis is placed on the rigorous coursework to ensure that students carry out their individual research work, thereby trying to solve issues from a scientific perspective. The research areas include:

  • Complex fluids
  • Energy Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Biomolecular Engineering


Complex fluids

Complex fluids are mixtures that have coexistence between two phases: solid-liquid, solid-gas, liquid-gas, or liquid-liquid. They range from food grains to processed foods to industrial products like paint, to hygiene products like toothpaste, and lotions. They are interesting to study as their response to applied forces is more complex than that of normal fluids such as water and air. Students and faculty from our department have been studying complex fluids by employing a variety of tools. Some of these include experimentation at macroscopic and microscopic levels, continuum mechanical modelling and computation and so on. Through our study, we hope to understand the fundamental physical and chemical processes that underlie the dynamics of complex fluids. This will help in designing newer products and processes of the future.

Energy Engineering

The department has been developing technologies to harness and store energy from renewable sources like solar, tidal and wind energy. Given the limited and finite nature of fossil fuels, we as a country must utilise renewable energy sources. The department has been working tirelessly to carry out new materials and processes for energy capture and storage. Some of the work includes continuum and molecular modelling studies that will help in improving the performance of rechargeable batteries and super-capacitors.

Environmental Engineering

Research work in our department addresses the variety of environmental crisis that the entire world faces. We have been working hard to address the problems of land, water and air pollution. Researchers of the department have been working to reduce the foul smell generated by landfills. They have also been trying to treat water generated from various sources and make it safe for human consumption or environmental release. A similar attempt is carried out to make groundwater clean by reducing its fluoride content.

Biomolecular Engineering

Biomolecular engineering is the application of engineering principles to the calculated manipulation of molecules of biological origin. The department employs a unique blend of theory, simulations, and experimental techniques for biomolecular engineering.  We are studying viral infections like HIV, hepatitis C, dengue etc. and trying to figure out the reasons behind the failure of current treatments. And design more potent and therapeutic protocols. Our effort is to synergize a broad spectrum of engineering and design techniques to achieve accurate manipulation of biological phenomenon for improved healthcare and sustainable development.
