(2) IPDC - 1 (Integrated Personality Development Course) (3150005):




(3) Mass Transfer Operations -I (3150501)



Rationale: The objective of this course is to study the principles of mass transfer and their applications to separation and purification processes in chemical industry. This course is intended to explain detailed fundamentals of mass transfer operations such as diffusion, mass transfer coefficient, inter phase mass transfer etc.. and its application for in depth study and for solving problems pertaining to some mass transfer operations such as in detail. This course also enables the students to understand principal and working of various mass transfer equipments like gas absorption columns, crystallizers, and extractors etc.


(4) Mechanical Operations (3150502):



Rationale: The main objective of this subject is to study the basic mechanical operation (crushing, grinding, screening, filtration, etc.) takes place during the process in chemical industry. It also provides platform to study and analyze various properties associated with the solid when it is in flow condition. This subject provides the fundamental knowledge regarding to particle size reduction and enlargement by various methods and also deals with the detail construction & working of equipment’s used for mechanical operations.


(5) Instrumentation and Process Control (3150504):



Rationale: The course is designed to introduce the fundamentals of process control along with instrumentation and its applications. The course will teach the students about mathematical models based on transfer function approach for single loop systems, how to obtain dynamic response of open loop and closed loop systems, stability analysis in transient and frequency domains, and controller tuning methods. The course introduces P, PI, and PID controllers and their applications. The course would end with more advanced concepts like feed-forward control, ratio control, model-predictive control, dead-time compensation, etc. The instrumentation for process control is also focused along with hands-on practical experience. Principles of operation of different measuring devices for temperature, level, pressure, flow, pH, humidity, density, and viscosity. Students will be introduced to transmitters, transducers, converters, control valves, digital and analog components related to PLC, DCS, and SCADA systems.


(6) Particle and Fluid Particle Processing (3150505):



Rationale: The main objective of this subject is to study the basic fluid particle processing to understand the basic physical unit operations in a chemical process industry. It also provides platform to study and analyze various properties associated with the solid when it is in flow condition.


(7) Chemical Process Plant Design & Economics (3150506):



Rationale: This course brings together the concepts of engineering and economics with special reference to chemical process and plant design along with the hierarchy of decisions in synthesis and analysis of a chemical process and its alternatives. This course is intended to challenge chemical engineer to combine basic technical principles learned in other courses in the general curriculum with practical elements of economics, business practices and organization along with principles of safety, environmental and sociological issues to design an integrated chemical process plant.


(8) Energy Technology (3150507):



Rationale: To provide an idea of the challenges in the field of energy management and to provide a perspective on energy technology. Students will learn the systems dimensions of the energy problems and its historical perspective on energy technology and system development. For different types of energy sources utilization in industries, the procedure of power generation, transportation along with conventional and advanced application in different sectors should be known by the student. This subject will guide students in the same direction.


(9) Material Science and Engineering (3150508):



Rationale: This course is intended to familiarize students with essential concepts in material science with an emphasis on particulate solids, their behavior and processing in various engineering applications. It will briefly cover basic concepts behind the chemistry of organic and inorganic compounds, chemical bonding and structure, and structure-property relationships in different engineering materials.


(10) Fuels and Combustion (3150509):



Rationale: Fuels and combustion course introduces basic knowledge about solid, liquid and gaseous fuels, their origin, classification, preparation procedure and characterization in terms of physico-chemical properties. Coal being the main solid fossil fuels, its mining, cleaning and combustion processes covered in detail. Petroleum is the liquid fuel which is elaborated in terms of exploration, evaluation, distillation and secondary processing. Different important gaseous fuels are also included. It also covers fundamentals of combustion along with and combustion appliances. Emphasis is given to combustion of various fuels considering thermodynamics. Combustion appliances are discussed in Combustion technology section. Basic knowledge of advance topics like continuous industrial furnaces and oxy-rich combustion is also incorporated for wide exposure and realising importance of the subject.
