Department of Chemical Engineering

Department of Chemical engineering of G H Patel College of Engineering & Technology (GCET) was established, way back in 1996 as one of the first undergraduate self financed (unaided) Engineering disciplines along with Information technology in the state of Gujarat. Originally affiliated to Sardar Patel University, Vallabh Vidyanagar GCET is now one of the affiliated colleges under Gujarat Technological University, Ahmedabad. The department, having an intake of 60 students, has so far produced 17 batches graduates with over 900 chemical engineers.

In the year 2012 the department of chemical engineering was accredited by the National Board of Accreditation, New Delhi. In the following year, the department received a grant to the tune of rupees eleven lakhs sixty-five thousands from AICTE under Modernization and removal of Obsolescence (MODROBS) scheme. We have also received project grants from CSIR, seminar grant from GUJCOST and Institutions of Engineers (India) (IE). Our department is also recognized by IE(I) as one of the two centers in Gujarat where AMIE students complete their practical experiments as a part of their final examination.
