Chemical Engineering at IIT Gandhinagar is a mix of traditional Chemical Engineering as well as the upcoming areas of Chemical Engineering such as Nanotechnology, Biomedical Engineering and Bimolecular Engineering, Pharmaceutical processing, Molecular dynamic simulations of polymeric systems. The students undergo an extensive course work and extensive laboratory practice in all conventional and advanced areas of Chemical Engineering. The Discipline has several faculty members with considerable teaching, industrial and research experience. Most of the courses are designed in such a fashion that there are ample scope for students to think beyond the class room teaching and learn innovative techniques to solve real life problems. In addition, students are involved in significant number of Industry projects where they get a chance to solve problem from Industry and interact with their future employer.

As IIT Gandhinagr is located in the heart of one of the Chemical hubs of the country, Chemical Engineering students get a chance to interact with local chemical companies and get connected through summer internships and regular plant visits to industries such as in Reliance - Dahej, Rainbow Papers - Ahmedabad, United Phosphorus Ltd. (UPL) - Bharuch, Indian Farmers Fertilizer Cooperative Ltd. IFFCO - Kallol, Reliance - Vadodara, Anup Engineering - Ahmadabad, National Fertilizers Ltd. (NFL) - Vijaipur, Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd. - Mumbai, Fluidyne - Bangalore, Amul – Ahmedabad etc. Similarly, many students undergo summer internships at various reputed academic institutes such as Washington University at St. Louis, California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Technische Univesitat Munchen, IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, IIM - Ahmedabad and National Innovation Foundation - Ahmedabad. Also there are many students who opt for higher studies at Universities like Princeton, Stanford, University of Houston etc.
