New & Current Students
A warm welcome to NEW batch!

Dear Friends,

Congratulations and welcome aboard to Department of Chemical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Science! I want to congratulate you on two counts: your excellent achievements in your undergraduate education, and in making the important career decision of joining our department to pursue your postgraduate education. We hope you are as pleased to be here as we are to have you.

The first few days will be particularly exciting for you, as there is so much to discover, explore and enjoy before you embark on your courses and other academic activities. We have made the necessary arrangements for easing your administrative chores, such as registration of courses, so that you can get on with the more important things like settling in, making new friends, and finding your way about in the campus. Each one of you will be guided by a faculty advisor through your course programme, until you choose a thesis or project supervisor.

I invite you to participate in the one-day orientation program which we have organized for you on August 1, every year starting at 10.00 AM. This will give you an opportunity to get acquainted with the department, interact with our faculty, students and staff, and get an introduction to our laboratories and facilities.

With one of the best academic programmes in the world and a beautiful campus, we hope that the Indian Institute of Science fulfils all your hopes and dreams as a student, and launches you into a satisfying and productive career in the years to come.

With my warmest regards.
