Chemical Engineering Congress

Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers

Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers (IIChE) was born on 18th May 1947 on the eve of the Indian Independence. Dr. Hira Lal Roy, the great visionary and pioneer of Chemical Engineering Education in India, along with few other senior colleagues felt the need for a platform to spread education of Chemical Engineering in India. On the 75th year of India’s Independence, the whole country is celebrating “Azadi ki Amritmahotsav” with a humongous goal of “Atma Nirbhar Bharat”. Self-reliant and confident India will eventually ensure a sustainable movement of  Chemical Engineering profession through academic excellence, research & development and industrial revolution.

 

Today with around 30,000 members on its roll, Institute has emerged on the apex body of Chemical Engineering Professionals in India . The activities of the Institute are spread across the country through its 42 Regional Centres and more than 168 student chapters. The Regional Centres promote and complement the activities and objectives of the Institute – within their respective territorial limits by organizing seminars, conferences, workshops, refresher courses, counseling sessions, and guiding career planning etc. The institute is recognized by the Department of Science & Technology, Govt of India as a Scientific and Industrial Research Organization.

Platinum Jubilee Celebration – 2022

Both Indian Institute of Chemical Engineering and the Nation India celebrate their 75th Anniversary year of Foundation in 2022. Ever since its foundation, the mission of IIChE was to contribute to the Nation building through dissemination of knowledge and enhancement of skill in the Chemical Engineering and its allied fields. Inspite of a challenging path, IIChE has been always steadfast in its role. Today the Organization has emerged as a premier professional platform for Chemical Engineering Education and Profession in India, having a Pan India outreach.

CHEMCON 2022

IIChE spreads the message and movement of Chemical Engineering by conducting classes and conferences throughout the year in regular interval. However, its annual event which is known as Chemical Engineering Congress (CHEMCON) stands out tall owing to its wide reach across National and International forum. CHEMCON provides an opportunity for all senior students of Chemical Engineers, research scholars, professors, industry experts to come together ensuring four days of intensive interface of knowledge and experience. These exchanges of thoughts and theories help all delegates to constantly update and equip themselves in a fast-changing scenario which calls for research and development in Chemical Engineering applications. CHEMCON 2022 will be 75th Annual Session of IIChE and will be organized by Kanpur Regional Centre. After many decades, CHEMCON is coming to Kanpur , the industrial city of Uttar Pradesh State.

 

CHEMCON 2022 will present a host of events, which includes memorial lectures, plenary lectures, seminars, panel discussions, international symposium, industrial exhibitions etc. It’s a matter of great honour and privileged for Patron and Members of NOC and LOC to invite you to participate in the thought-provoking deliberations in this flagship event of IIChE.
