Dwarkadas. J. Sanghvi College of Engineering has started the course in CHEMICAL ENGINEERING , in 1994 with an intake of 60.

The department is having the state-of-the-art infrastructure, which includes fully airconditioned class rooms, laboratories, staff rooms and tutorial room. All the classrooms and laboratories are equipped with modern amenities such as OHP, multimedia projection, internet access during lectures. The college is also havingWireless Internet access for all the departments.

The department is having highly qualified, experienced and dedicated teaching and supporting staff having pursued their Masters and Doctorate degrees from topmost colleges of India including the IITs and ICT. Under the guidance of the management and principal the department is flourishing by leaps and bounds. It helped the department to attract not only meritorious students but also the rank holders in the first year admission done on the basis of their marks in HSC level and CET examination. The department is committed to excellence in teaching-learning process and pursuing research and development.
