TEQIP Project at Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT)


            The Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai (ICT-Mumbai) is a Deemed University under Section 3 of UGC Act of 1956 and was one of the Lead Institutions under Phase-I of Technical Education Quality Improvement Program (TEQIP-I) of the Government of India, and has performed extremely well in TEQIP II.  The purpose of TEQIP is to enhance capabilities of Indian educational institutions to respond to the rapid pace of technological and economic development occurring both nationally and internationally.  The program facilitates the transition of beneficiary institutions into dynamic, quality conscious, efficient and responsive centre of excellence.  ICT-Mumbai has benefited greatly from this program: as demonstrated by the extensive infrastructural development carried out using TEQIP funds and the concomitant increase in research output.  The Institute has gone on to undertake knowledge dissemination programs and has successfully implemented a variety of new technologies. The TEQIP was critical in the process of the Institute to becoming an Autonomous Institute in the initial phase of the TEQIP programme and a Deemed University in the later stage of the programme.

            Established in 1934 as a department of University of Mumbai through efforts of the Indian chemical industry, ICT-Mumbai has grown into a Deemed University on the basis of its outstanding contribution to chemical engineering and technology. ICT was conferred elite status and Center of Excellence by the Government of Maharashtra in 2012. ICT-Mumbai currently offers a range of undergraduate and post-graduate courses covering the entire spectrum of needs of the chemical industry, with a total enrolment of 1020 undergraduates, 312 Masters and 687 PhD students. The ratio of postgraduate to undergraduate students (PG/UG ratio) in ICT-Mumbai is probably the highest in the country.  This has made for a vibrant research culture that has achieved a symbiosis of academic excellence and practical relevance; by generating knowledge and insights at the cutting edge of chemical engineering and technology and incorporating these into industrial practice.

            ICT-Mumbai is one of the top performing institutions of India and the world in terms of production of PhDs, publications in reputed international journals, patents, output per faculty, PG/UG ratios and cost-effectiveness. Its close relationship to the industry has resulted in industrially relevant research programs with a high degree of implementation of innovations, a large consultancy program, a dynamic curriculum development process and a enthusiastic financial support from the industry. Its highly motivated and qualified student body has a brilliant history of achievement both in academia and industry.  In the recent review of Deemed Universities by MHRD, ICT has been rated with Grade A along with the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) and Coal Survey Laboratory (CFRI), from the State Government of Maharashtra.

             ICT-Mumbai strives to be a premier institute engaged in education, training and research in the field of Chemical Engineering/ Technology, and its performance has consistently been given high ratings. ICT has focused on catering to the needs of the industry by continuously upgrading highly specialized courses to produce performing chemical engineers and technologists. Appropriate specialized and interdisciplinary courses are introduced to keep pace with the fast changing technology.

            ICT was graded as No 2 University in India in 2015 in a normalized ranking methodology. In 2016 ICT was a No. 25 as a University, No 14 for Technology and No4 for Pharmacy as this ranking was not normalized ranking. 

            After successful completion of TEQIP II, ICT has embarked on a visionary mission of not just growing as a University, but as a twinning partner to mentor Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra (BITS-Mesra), Ranchi to scale to greater heights.
