Chemical Engineering

Pursuing Chemical Engineering at Amal Jyothi College of Engineering at Kanjirappally, provides an education that prepares you to help meet challenges in environment, petrochemicals, alternative energy, food, pharmaceutical and healthcare industries We help students identify their strengths and interests so they gain confidence and competence as they plan for their future. The study begins from a foundation rooted in the basic sciences of mathematics, chemistry, physics, and biology, an engineering science core of thermodynamics, transport phenomena, and chemical kinetics to an expanding focus on emerging topics in materials, nanotechnology and processing. Apart from focus on basic and engineering sciences, our students are trained in problem solving, analysis of experiments, and chemical process design. A special feature of our program is the accessibility of laboratory research which most senior undergraduates participate in faculty-led research projects, often resulting in publication and or presentation at national conferences. The Department’s students with their well-rounded educational backgrounds and diverse interests are particularly well-suited to capitalize on emerging opportunities in the industry. We also prepare our students to make smart, strategic career decisions throughout their professional lives by providing professional advising and counseling aimed at building their understanding of job search and career self-management processes. We also help connect them with prospective employers. Many of our students pursue post graduate programs in chemical, biotechnology, or environmental engineering, or join business schools aiming to ultimately become leaders in academia, industry, government, business, and the non-profit sector.
