CPSE is one of the key departments that constitute HIT’s School of Engineering and Technology. The department, through continuous research and development, embedded in the Institute’s HIT projects, is mainly concerned with conceptualization, design, construction, commissioning and safe operation of equipment and plants. It is at the core of the Institute’s mandate of technology development, incubation and transfer in areas of chemical and process systems engineering, water and sanitation, environmental engineering and renewable energy. We aim at cost effective and sustainable ways of converting raw materials to finished products for human use. The department is also at the centre of ensuring access to clean water, as well as a clean and safe environment by coming up with technologies with a positive socio-economic impact, notwithstanding the availability of sustainable and renewable energy.
