Prize Distribution for communities by Das Sir and Vanzara Sir

Chemical Engineering Department conducts a book launch of annual booklet of photography and prize distribution ceremony for the students and winners of communities.

At the department of Chemical Engineering we believe in overall development of the students and hence after the college hours we encourage the students to dwell in their favourite hobbies or passion.

The inception of six various communities were done by the former assistant professor at the department, Ms. Divya K. Rajput under the guidance of HOD Dr. Piyush B. Vanzara.

These communities are currently handled by Mrs. Urvi Parekh, lecturer at the chemical department.

Two such communities which are active in participation and talent, Literature and Blog and Art and Photography.


In this community, the students who love writing write their hearts out in the form of some stories, blogs, micro- tales, poetries etc. Here, language is not a barrier. So we conducted few weekly contests on different themes. The winners were gifted with several motivational books as prizes in the presence of Dr. A.K. Das.

The best writer award was given to Shyam Mandaliya of 8th semester for his overall excellence in writing.

Other students who won prizes were:

  1. Chinmay Joshi (8th sem)
  2. Akshay Attara (6th sem)
  3. Mitesh Sorathiya (6th sem)
  4. Sejal Koriya (3rd sem)
  5. Harsh Vachhani (1st sem)
  6. Ram Kachha (1st sem)
  7. Ruwaif Rizvi (1st sem)

We are very fortunate to have some amazing photographers in our department who are well versed with artistic clicks. So, the department decided to showcase the best 100 clicks in a photography booklet and if the legacy continues, we’d love to make this an annual affair.

Hence, the students poured in their best clicks and out of some thousand odd pictures best 100 were selected and the booklet was fondly named “Photo- Synthesiz” as it was synthesized by chemical engineers.

The cover page picture was given to the best photograph clicked by Jay Parmar of 8th semester for clicking several amazing photographs and contributing towards the community and department.

The book launch for “Photo- synthesiz” was done by Dr. Das on this day.

Expert Lecture by Dr. A. K. Das, the head of R & D and Process Development at Reliance Ind Ltd.

On 12th of January, 2017 on the auspicious occasion of Swami Vivekanada’s 155th birth anniversary, the department of Chemical Engineering welcomed Dr. Asit K. Das, the head of refining R & D and Process Development at Reliance Industries Limited, Jamnagar. He has 31 years of research experience, has developed several processes and commercialized them. He holds more than 60 national/ international patents and more than 70 publications including 5 book chapters.

Dr. Asit Das is a staunch follower of Swami Vivekananda and hence, being a research person and a chemical engineer himself, he chose to speak on a spiritual yet very essential subject for the current generation: “Enhancing Individual’s Efficiency: A Comprehensive Model”.

The programme was hosted by Mr. Abhinav Gupta, lecturer at the Chemical Department. The head of the Chemical department and Associate Professor, Dr. Piyush B. Vanzara welcomed Das sir with a bouquet and a momento.

Dr. A. K. Das began the programme by stating that his lecture was based on Swami Vivekananda’s teachings and his own life experiences. He presented various spiritual models followed by interesting videos. The students of pre- final and final year from various departments besides chemical department as well as all the faculty members thoroughly enjoyed the session. This was the second time Das Sir had graced our institute with his valuable presence.
