The Master of Technology (M.Tech.) degree course with specialisation in "Petroleum Refinery Engineering" was started in 2004. Currently, the department offers four specialisations in the M.Tech. degree course (since 2011), viz. (1) Petroleum Science and Technology (2) Materials Science and Technology (3) Computer Aided Process Engineering and (4) International Joint M.Tech Degree in Food Science and Technology to the candidates selected through GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering). The master degree courses follow a four-semester system. In the first two semesters, the postgraduate students are exposed to advanced common courses of Chemical Engineering as well as specialisation related courses. The curriculum involves one year of thesis work (semesters III and IV) which includes fundamental and applied research.
