What is the BTech Chemical Engineering Syllabus?
The BTech Chemical Engineering syllabus introduce students to core Chemical Engineering topics such as inorganic chemical technology, momentum transfer, process calculation, organic chemical technology, physical chemistry, transforms and partial differential equations, Chemical Engineering thermodynamics, particulate science and technology, environmental engineering, fluid mechanics lab, physical chemistry lab.
In most of the top engineering institutes, the students are taught common subjects in the first year followed by specialization subjects in the second year. First year of BTech Chemical Engineering syllabus in every institute has almost the same course curriculum, which consists of basic engineering subjects like- Engineering Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Programing, Electrical Engineering etc. From the second year onwards the core courses of chemical engineering are taught.
