AZeotropy 2k19: Nanotechcellence – Demystifying the nanoworld

India is a country with the largest number of students pursuing engineering. A common platform where students from various parts of the country can challenge their potentials is a great way to enhance the skills of an engineer.

IIT Bombay presents AZeotropy, the Annual Chemical Engineering Symposium organized by the students of Chemical Engineering. Established in 2007, with an aim to bring together students,  industry, and academia, the symposium comprises of diverse events involving a unique blend of Chemical Engineering based Competitions, Lecture Series, Panel Discussions, Exhibitions, Workshops, and Informal events. AZeotropy is now recognized as the leading Chemical Engineering symposium organized in India with yearly participation of over 4000 students from over 300 different engineering colleges all over India and more than 50 corporate personalities working in the field. The 12th Edition of AZeotropy came up with workshops like ASPEN, ANSYS Fluent, COMSOL, MATLAB, DWSIM, which saw huge participation of students of colleges from all over India.


Each year, AZeotropy hauls a theme to promote and bring out the sections which are not discovered in routine academic curriculum and base on it organizes many intriguing competitions, events, and also a wide variety of lectures by industrialist and professors, panel discussions, on-the-spot quizzes, informal events etc.

Flipping 12 golden editions of the symposium, the 13th edition is all set to take place on 16-17 March 2019. AZeotropy 2019 highlights the theme, “Nanotechcellence- demystifying the nanoworld”. By bringing together academic and industrial research, we make an effort to zoom into the invisible. We present to you groundbreaking panel discussion probing into the applications of nanotechnology and a plethora of competitions which would further consolidate the knowledge of budding engineering enthusiasts. The event will witness eminent personalities and professionals in that field to enlighten the young minds.
