Established on October 1, 1933 as University Department of Chemical Technology (popularly called UDCT) of the University of Bombay (now Mumbai), with the noble intention of advancing India's knowledge reserves in Chemical Science and Technology, the Institute has grown to become a premier (deemed) university devoted to Education, Training, Research and Industrial collaboration in Chemical Engineering, Chemical Technology, Applied Chemistry, Pharmacy, Biotechnology and Bio- Processing. The then UDCT grew in stature over the years and was converted in to a Deemed-to-be-University by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Govt. of India, on 12 September 2008. The ICT runs nine undergraduate programmes all connected to chemical and allied industries on its main campus along with different postgraduate programmes and doctoral programmes. Besides the main campus at Matunga, Mumbai, it has additional campuses at Jalna, Marathwada and Bhubaneshwar with support from Indian Oil Corporation. These campuses have five year integrated Masters’ programmes with a major and minor degrees in Chemical Engineering and Chemical Technology. While maintaining a high publishing record in international journals, it maintains close linkages with the industry too. (IOE).
