Chemical Engineering and Academics
28th May - 1st June 2012
Welcome to IIT Gandhinagar
Introduction List of Selected Candidates for Workshop Course Material
A Chemical Engineer as a faculty member of an academic institution has multiple tasks to perform. It includes teaching undergraduate and post graduate classes, developing and conducting laboratory courses and carrying out independent research. While teaching is stressed in various colleges in India, other facets are largely ignored. This 5-day workshop at IIT Gandhinagar is an attempt to highlight the importance of each of the above mentioned aspects of an academician's job. The workshop will focus on techniques of problem solving (by Prof. K. S. Gandhi), design of experimental set-ups and analysis of the experiments (by Prof Divekar) and applications of computational techniques in Chemical Engineering using SCILAB/MATLAB (by Dr. Nitin Padhiyar). Every theory session will be complemented by laboratory/tutorial sessions too. On the last day, faculty members from Chemical Engineering department at IIT Gandhinagar will present their research activities to highlight modern trends in Chemical Engineering Research.
