Chemical Engineering Society (ChES) is the student chapter of the chemical engineering department, SVNIT. It was institutionalised in by the batch of 2014 on January 16th, 2014. The faction provides a platform for the chemical engineering community of SVNIT where they can discuss, plan, execute and debug their problems among their peers. Events and seminars conducted by ChES focus on both the building the public understanding of technical issues and the individual curiosity of the enthusiasts.
Siphon is our annual departmental festival which aims at improving the public understanding of basic chemical engineering and chemistry. The other major initiative by ChES is Eureka! Eureka provides a platform for budding chemical engineers to come up with solutions to different industrial problems through research methodology. Other small events and talks on career and general awareness are organised throughout the year. Undergraduate students of the second year and beyond lead the student chapter. Pupils need to clear the interview round to be a part of the community.
ChES is affiliated to the American Institute of Chemical Engineering (AIChE). Dr Meghal Desai, professor at ChED is the faculty advisor of ChES.
