The introduction of Chemical Engineering in India as a distinct branch of engineering dates back to 1921 with the help of Acharya P.C. Roy and under the academic leadership of Professor H. L. Roy and Professor Baneswar Das, a course of study was offered for the first time at the Bengal Technical Institute, the predecessor of Jadavpur University. This department is one of the oldest departments in Chemical Engineering in the World. The department commemorated Diamond Jubilee in 1982 and Platinum Jubilee in 1996.
