    Fee Structure And Facilities :

    Feasibile when I studied there, although fee hikes have been made the fees higher after I left. There have been numerous student protests as well about this. However since these decisions are taken on a pan IIT level there isn't much effect of such protests.

    Course Curriculum Overview :

    Course curriculum for the chemical engineering majors is largely industry driven but has sufficient research components. Lectures are combined with a good number of lab Courses that allow one to apply the theoretical knowledge gained. Courses like heat transfer and thermodynamics were very useful.
