Research Activities:

The department has seven M. Tech and two B.Tech young faculty members having 1-4 years of teaching or research experience, who are actively involved in research activity in various areas of specialization in chemical engineering such as modeling and simulation, petroleum refining, industrial safety, hazard analysis,  industrial pollution, and biotechnology. They are actively guided and motivated by Dr M. C. Bansal, Professor and Head, who has retired from IIT Roorkee after 42 years of service. Two Ph.D. thesis have been completed under him at IITR since he has joined BIT and 2 more are in the pipe line. Many national and international publications have been made under him since he has joined BIT.
Faculty members have presented and published their technical papers in one international and five national conferences of high reputation and research papers in journals are under process.
