Profile of Mumbai University Institute of Chemical Technology Matunga

About Us
The Mumbai University Institute of Chemical Technology, known earlier as UDCT is the most outstanding Institute of the University of Mumbai. This prestigious institute is a jewel in the crown of the University of Mumbai. It was founded on 4th August 1934 and was recently awarded the status of the Institute on 26th January 2002 and renamed MUICT. It enjoys a unique and prominent place amongst the premier institutes that are engaged in education, training and research in the field of Chemical Engineering, Chemical Technology and Pharmacy in India. Located in central Mumbai over a lush green campus of 16 acres, the MUICT has a built-up area of 33000 m2 including classrooms, laboratories and hostels.

The genesis and growth of the MUICT is a sequel to the intense desire and support by the Indian Chemical Industry. Excellent symbiosis of academic excellence and industrial relevance has been a unique feature of MUICT. This year the institute has been bestowed the FICCI award in the field of research in Science and Technology for the pioneering work in chemical engineering and technology for the year 2000-2001. This is also for the first time that any educational institution in India has received the highest recognition from the apex body of industries i.e. Federation of Indian Chambers of commerce and Industries. The FICCI award commemorates the 'excellent relationship that the MUICT has built with industry by commercialization of major process improvement, designs in engineering and adoption of new technologies resulting in large increase in profitability'. The award also recognizes the achievement in establishing a 'culture of research in an exemplary fashion'.

American Institute of Chemical Engineers' Directory published recently shows that the number of Masters and Ph.D. students per faculty member in the Chemical Engineering Education is the highest in the world for MUICT. In a recent survey conducted by IIM, Bangalore on the relevance of academic research that has contributed to product or process improvements in the industry, MUICT appears in number one position for both chemical and pharmaceutical fields. Total 71 firms participating the survey, cited 106 academic researchers from 56 institutes. MUICT occupied the first position with 33% share in chemicals with IIT-B in the second place with only 8%. In the case of drug industry, MUICT was at the top with 52% followed by IICT, Hyderabad with a score of 28%. MUICT has focused on catering the needs of the industry by upgrading the modifying the highly specialized courses to produce chemical engineers and technologists of A class. Appropriate specialized and interdisciplinary courses are introduced to keep pace with the fast changing technology.

The Masters Program in Bioprocess Technology with special emphasis on downstream processing, Masters Program in Flavour & Perfume Technology and Masters Program in Plastic Processing are some of these courses that are unique in the whole country. Most of these courses have partial or total support of the industry and allied professional bodies. In January 2001, MUICT has introduced a certificate course in Chemical Technology Management for Doctoral students of MUICT with the objective to train them to provide leadership to chemical industry and undertake entrepreneurship. The course is launched with the assistance of UICT Alumni Association. It is a matter of pride to state that on an average 30% of MUICT graduates from every class have started their own industries, most of the time without any family background of business.

The All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) has rated MUICT postgraduate education as the best in the country including all the branches of engineering and technology and as comparable to the best anywhere in the world. Recently, the Director, Department of Technical Education (DTE), Maharashtra State has given MUICT 'A' Grade on the basis of excellent facilities with respect to teachers, classrooms, library, workshop etc.

A recent survey by Prof. Y.T. Sommerfield of Georgia Institute of Technology, USA indicates that the MUICT occupies pinnacle position in the country as well as in the world in terms of publications in International reputed Journals. Since its inception 66 years back, MUICT has maintained the highest academic parameters of attainments because of the dedicated and sustained efforts of the faculty and the enthusiastic hard work of the students. The industry has been wholeheartedly participating in the introduction of quality faculty, development of laboratories, library and other infrastructure.

The MUICT has sanctioned faculty strength of 103 (25 professors, 39 readers and 39 lecturers). At present it has the faculty strength of 63 including 25 professors, 11 readers and 27 lecturers who are supported by about 242 non-teaching staff including administrative and laboratory assistants. There are total 1216 students out of which 890 are undergraduate (245 lady students) and 326 are postgraduates (140 masters and 186 PhD, 20 and 54 women respectively). There are 11 Departments in MUICT, which include Chemical Engineering, Six branches of Chemical Technology: Intermediates & Dyes, Food & Fermentation, Oils Surfactants & Oleochemicals, Paints & Polymer, Pharmaceutical Technology & Pharmacy, Fibres & Textile Processing. In addition, there is one Department of General Engineering and three Departments of Applied Sciences: Applied Chemistry, Applied Physics, and Applied Mathematics. Talented students are attracted for the graduate and post-graduate programs since most of the major Departments enjoy the special recognition by way of special assistance programs of the UGC.

Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT), Mumbai, is India's premier chemical engineering and technology research institute. It is an institute dedicated to training and research in various branches of Chemical Engineering, Chemical Technology, and Pharmacy. Over the last 76 years it has acquired the status of being a premier and renowned institute of Chemical Technology in the country.

The ICT was founded in 1933 as a Bombay University Department of Chemical Technology (known worldwide as UDCT) by the explicit desire and money of industrialists and philanthropists, to cater to the requirements of the Chemical Industry. Thus, since its very inception, it has maintained strong links with the Chemical Industry. The ICT has maintained its academic excellence over the past 75 years and is ranked amongst the best colleges in India.

The University of Mumbai conferred the autonomous status on the UDCT in 1994, with concurrence from the Maharashtra State Government and the UGC. Further the 'UDCT' was renamed as the Mumbai University Institute of Chemical Technology (Autonomous) (MUICT) on 26 January 2002. The ICT was selected as a Lead Institution under the Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (TEQIP) of the Govt. of India. For effective implementation of this programme, the Govt. of Maharashtra granted complete Autonomy to ICT since June 2004. On 12 September 2008, the ICT was granted the Deemed-to-be University status under Section 3 of the UGC Act 1956. Now it is renamed as the Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT) [Deemed University], and is functioning as per the Statutes, Ordinances, Regulations and Rules of its own.

The Department of Chemical Engineering of ICT is one of the leading Chemical Engineering Departments in the Country maintaining high standardsin teaching, research and industrial liaisoning, rated by the international surveys conducted by Professor Jude Sommefield of Georgia Tech, USA since 1964 for every five year period as well as every year which included all IITs and IISc. Besides, it is among the top 12 departments in the world and in terms of
productivity as measured by papers per faculty per dollar spent, it is number one in the world.

ICT is spread over 16 acres (65,000 m2). The main building faces Nathalal Parikh Marg and has a beautiful architecture with fine dressed stone. The lush green gardens of the ICT are a matter of pride especially to the ICT gardeners. ICT gardens have bagged several prizes at the City level. Other buildings, three boys hostels, two ladies hostels, faculty and staff apartments are located behind the main building. The rear boundary of the institute runs along Kidwai Road.

Several on-campus hostels provide accommodation to students from all educational streams. Hostels enhance many aspects of the college atmosphere.

There are 5 hostel buildings which cater to the students' need of accommodation.
* Old Boys hostel
* New Boys hostel
* New Girls hostel
* Post Graduate (P.G.) hostel
* Old Girls Hostel
