The projects were evaluated by experts from Industry and Professor from other university accompanied by internal evaluators from the institute. Event was conducted on MS Teams from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.
An expert lecture on “Steam cracker” was arranged by the chemical engineering department on 10th April 2021 through Teams online platform. Mr Utkarsh Mishra, Senior Manager, Reliance Industries Ltd, Jamnagar was the invited speaker of the session. Around 100 students of final and pre-final year were present in the session.
Mr Utkarsh had given an overview of the refinery and focused on the steam cracker unit. He explained the role, importance, major key points associated with the cracker unit. He started with the basic fundamentals and explained the cracking and its mechanism in detail. He also talked about the major issues and problems of the unit.
Department of chemical engineering had arranged an online expert talk on “Overview of Large Industry functional groups – Role of Chemical Engineers” on 31st March 2021 for 4th and 6th sem students. Around 120 participants were there in the session delivered by Mr Pradip Shah, Ex VP, RIL.
Mr Pradip Shah briefed about the functioning of the chemical plant. He explained very minute details of the same and exposed the students about the real functioning of industry. He explained the basic difference between small, medium and large scale industries and talked about each component of a large scale industry.
During his lecture, Mr Pradip had shed some light on the major roles of chemical engineers and talked about designing, troubleshooting, plant maintenance, plant operation, utilities in the plant etc. He also discussed the current scenario of chemical industries and variation into the role of chemical engineer with time.
The Chemical Engineeirng department is proud to share the news of 8 students of BE clearing the GATE 21 examaination.
The students are RAVIKUMAR CHHAGANBHAI SATANI, JENIL ARVINDBHAI BARVALIYA, AJAYSINH YOGRAJSINH SOLANKI, ARCHAN VIPUL JOSHI, PARMAR DARSHANBHAI MAHESHBHAI, RISHABH RAJESH KASHYAP, AKRAMMAHENDI AIYUBBHAI GHANCHI VHORA and VEKARIYA VIVEKKUMAR BHIKHUBHAI.
The department offers heartiest congratulations to the students and wishes them all the very best for future endeavours.
Mr Aroh Shrivastav, Scientific officer, IPR had delivered an expert lecture on “Fusion Energy: A Global Need” to
hemical engineering students on 17th February 2021. He discussed various energy sources and elaborated the fusion energy in depth. He gave a brief idea about the fundamentals of fusion energy and how it can be implemented as a better energy source.
While discussing fusion energy, he talked about the usefulness of this energy form and its applications. He also explained plasma in detail and the reactor used for controlled fusion reactions- Tokamak- was also well
emonstrated in depth. He enlightened the application of fusion energy and how shifting towards this source can be benefitted to future generations was explained by him. Knowledge was certainly increased amongst the students through this lecture.
A one-day webinar on "Nano Technology and its Application" was organized by Chemical Engineering Department, L. D. College of Engineering, Ahmedabad at 7th January-2021. A total of 97 participants including faculties from
hemical engineering department and 1st and 2nd year students. The inauguration was held on 07/01/2021at 5:30 PM. The Keynote speaker was Prof. (Dr.) Mamta Chahar, Assistant professor, Dept. of Chemistry, Nalanda College of Engineering Chandi- Nalanda. Dr.Anajli Bishnoi introduced the eminent speaker and also brief her research in area of Nano technology and its application. During the online session expert shared her knowledge and experiences with the participants. he faculty and First year students benefitted immensely from the lectures and experiences shared by the expert. All the participants gave a positive feedback about the workshop and welcomed the initiative.
Mr. Chinmay Tiwari, Master of Science in Nanotechnology. Tecnológico de Monterrey (Monterrey, México) ex-Manager, Reliance Industries Ltd., (SEZ, FCC Unit) delivered an expert lecture on “Coiled-flow invertors (CFI) as candidates for continuous flow photoreactor units” to chemical engineering students on 4th January 2021. He discussed a case study based on the oxidative degradation of fluorescein induced by visible light in the presence of ZnO-APTMS-Au micro/nano-particles in aqueous suspension as a part of International Lecture Series.
He provided useful insight in the field of nano particle based photocatalytic reaction. Additionally the scope of higher studies for chemical engineers who want to pursue in abroad uni-versities was also discussed. The lecture benefited the students by not only providing technical knowledge but also for higher studies abroad.
