The department has been granted one of the Student Chapters of the prestigious American Institute of Chemical Engineers in 2018, only eleven of the kind. The MIT Pune Chapter is an active participant in the student chapter, and the students are involved in the weekly student-faculty events conducted with great zeal and enthusiasm. At MIT, the AIChE student chapter provides a voice for undergraduates in department affairs, encourages the professional development of students through seminars workshops and events concerning graduate school applications, job hunting, and life in industry.
MIT World Peace University comes under the aegis of MAEER’S Charitable Education Trust. With a rich legacy of over 4 decades, MIT Group of Institutes – Pune are known to be among the top education institutions in India. Today students from extremely diverse backgrounds across the world are experiencing ‘Life transforming curriculum’ across equally diverse fields of study & professional study programs such as- Engineering, Subsurface Engineering, Marine Engineering ,Medicine, Pharmacy, Insurance, Telecom Management, Lighting, Design, Food & Technology, Retail Management, Business Administration, Management Studies, Political Leadership & Governance, Distance Education, and also School of Education.
Chemovision is the annual industry institute interaction event held in MIT, Pune. Petrovision, that commenced in 2003, has been rebranded to Chemovision under the aegis of AIChE student chapter. Chemovision is in a view to provide the young chemical engineers with a platform to interact, showcase and exchange their ideas with fellow chemical engineers and learn about the developments in the industry. It helps the students by providing them a competitive edge in the corporate environment. Along with an array of technical events including Paper presentation, Industry defined problem solving, Model making and technical Chemical Engineering quiz, We have a special event called Mock placement where students get an opportunity to know their employability potential and also stand a chance to land an internship or a job. The event is supported by major oil and gas, refining, petrochemical, chemical and fine chemical industries such as IOCL, HPCL, BPCL, Reliance, Hikal etc. Every year, the event is also staged for the release of the Chemoscope magazine, an annual report on the activities of the students and the department.
Chemical Engineering is one of the core branches of engineering, which mainly deals with physical chemistry and one would learn some interesting subjects of other disciplines as well like Piping, Optimization, and Strength of materials. Scope of Chemical Engineering in emerging countries is growing as research organizations, laboratories, defence establishments, atomic power plants, and forensic investigation departments also need chemical engineering experts. B. Tech Chemical Engineering programme is designed to provide fundamental understanding of Chemical Engineering science and exposure to the latest advances and technologies in the Chemical industry.
MIT Pune is one of the few institutes in India to offer the unique Petrochemical degree course which is a specialized chemical engineering course with an emphasis on refining operations and petrochemical technology. The four year undergraduate program has a focus on all core chemical engineering subjects with additional subjects such as Petrochemical Processes, Refining Operations, and Refinery Process Design. Petrochemical engineering graduates of the department are shouldering responsibilities in key positions in refineries, petrochemical plants as well as downstream petroleum industries.
