  • Curriculum - First year
  • Curriculum - Second year
  • Curriculum - Third year

As the name of the division implies, there are three different technological courses conducted by the division, namely Polymer Technology, Textile & Clothing Technology and Chemical Engineering Technology. Each course consists of two years of academic work and one year of industrial training.

 

Chemical Engineering Technology

 

Chemical Engineering Technology is concerned with industrial processes in which raw materials are changed or separated into useful products. The aim of the Chemical Engineering Technology course is to provide knowledge to the diplomates to serve in the chemical industry.

Chemical Engineering diplomates will be involved in fabrication, operation, control, maintenance of plant & equipment and research work in chemical industries such as petroleum, food, paper, salt, water and waste water treatment, production of chemicals, soap, detergents, fertilizer, polymer ceramic etc.

Polymer Technology

Polymer Technology includes a study of the scientific technological aspects of polymer materials, manufacturing of quality products and testing. Polymers include a wide variety of materials but the term polymer is commonly used for plastics, rubber, fibres, surface coatings and adhesives.  The polymer industry is growing fast and this demands for workers with academic and professional knowledge.

Besides the National Diploma in Technology course, the division also conducts the Certificate Course in Polymer Technology. The course is a part-time course of one year duration and is mainly meant for those employed in the polymer industry. The course content is designed so as to provide both theoretical and practical knowledge in rubber and plastic technology. The course promotes industry- institute relationship.

Textile & Clothing Technology

The Textile and Clothing Technology study programme provides an excellent all round education and preparation for employment in Textile and Clothing and related fields. Diplomates typically go into a wide variety of jobs (in the Textile and Garment industries.)
