BIT Mesra offers 2 undergraduate and 1 postgraduate program in chemical engineering; BE in Chemical Engineering, BE in Chemical Engineering (Plastics and Polymer), and ME in Chemical Engineering.

  • If we look at the overall chemical engineering ecosystem in India, it is not very good. There are very few private chemical companies in India. 
  • The curriculum of the programs is very old and has not been updated to meet the 21st-century demands. 
  • Thus the engineers being produced by the colleges in India are also below par. 
  • Close to 95% of the chemical engineering graduates from tier-3 engineering colleges work in service companies with an annual salary of 2-3 lakhs. 

The recent placement statistics for Chemical Engineering at the institute are as follows.
