The idea of starting a national program for the students of chemical engineering in line with CHEMCON was being nurtured by the Institute during the last few years.
A Students’ CHEMCON (Schemcon) acts as a source of encouragement and self-confidence to young minds, which is considered as the most fertile ground for generation of original and creative ideas.
The first ever Students’ Chemcon was organised during 7 to 9 December 2005 at IIT-Guwahati jointly by the Student Chapters at IIT-Guwahati and Assam Engineering College, both newly formed.
SCHEMCON 2017 will be organized by the Department of Chemical Engineering, National Institute of Technology, Rourkrla under the aegis of the Rourkela Regional Centre, IIChE, during 7 – 8 October, 2017 on the theme “Emerging Technological Advancement in Chemical Engineering”.
