Petro Chemical Engineering
Department of petrochemical engineering is committed to impart knowledge to students at all levels through a vibrant , Dynamic and state of art intellectual delivers to ensure the creation of a complete Petrochemical engineer with high sense of social responsibilities.
Petrochemical engineering is a specialized branch of Chemical Engineering which deals with the operations of refining and petrochemical technology. The term petrochemical refers to the organic chemicals which are obtained directly or indirectly from crude petroleum. It is the task of the petrochemical engineers to discover natural sources of oil, extract them from the earth, refine them and make it usable. Petroleum engineering can be divided into two parts, upstream sector and downstream sector. The upstream sector activities include exploration, production and exploitation of oil and natural gases. The downstream sector consist activities such as the refining, marketing and distributing of petroleum products. Refining process is crucial for an oil product as then only it can be used. Petrochemical engineers mainly have needs in refineries, petrochemical plants as well as downstream petroleum industries and R & D Organizations.
Today, petrochemical products permeate the entire spectrum of daily use items and cover almost every sphere of life like clothing, housing, construction, furniture, automobiles, household items, agriculture, horticulture, irrigation, packaging, medical appliances, electronics and electrical etc.
In order to bridge the gap between Institution and Industries, Industrial visits are arranged. Experienced personnel from Industries are invited for Guest lectures and to interact with students.
Career Growth @ SSEC
Students have consistently won prizes in these competitions. Training students in English and Soft skills such as team work, personality development, Interview and Group discussion is a regular practice. NSS, Sports and Games and other extracurricular activities are held regularly. Industrial training ranging from one week to one month are arranged for students during vacation which helps them to understand the actual real time practices in Industries. This exposure insists greater confidence in him thereby improving performance in academics and placement.
