The department of Chemical engineering has a Department Library that has all the important books related to the syllabus of the program and general books as well. The Department library is stocked with 350 books. The greatest advantage of the department library is that the number of books one can get from the department library is not limited. Seating is also arranged in the department library so that both the faculty and students can have a quick reference regarding any topic.

UTLP (Unified Technology Learning Platform) is an ardent facilitator for aiding engineers gain hand-on, learn and understand complex and advance technologies simply. Besides, UTLP also concentrates on making students and freshmen industry ready as it gives them the experience of working in real time. Eventually, UTLP embraces modern technologies to bridge the gap between academia and industry. It increases individual learning towards subjects and supports and motivates students towards building and integrating concepts keeping in mind organizational practices. It also promotes and expedites Entrepreneurship and Research within the country.

The knowledge on the usage of UTLP Board is the need of hour in order to bridge the gap between the expectations of the industry and the educational institutions. It's the first time in our region such a lab has been set up exclusively for application oriented training and implementation. UTLP board comprises ARM cortex processor, DSP processor, TFT LCD, Character LCD and so on embedded on a single kit. Through this centre, training an be given to the staff and students at college premises regarding real time applications. The students are the real beneficiaries of these efforts; learn and have hands-on about the applications of FPGA, DIP and Embedded System at a time.
