The department has 4 laboratories:

  1. Chemical Engineering Lab
  2. Sugar Technology Lab
  3. Sustainable Environmental Lab
  4. Solid Waste Lab

These laboratories are run by the 3 technical staff namely Mr Satyadeo Beekhun (Principal Technician), Mr Deepak Reedoye (Technician) and Ms Pritima Unauth. They are supported by one technical assistant - Mr Harold Reid.

Chemical Engineering Laboratory

The Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics Laboratory, located at the ground floor of the Phase II Building of the University, contains most of the equipment related to chemical engineering. The main practicals carried out are related to thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer, unit operations, combustion and incineration, and renewable energy technologies.
