This article provides information on chemical engineering education in Gujarat, India. Basing from a report by McKinsey Global Institute, the author said that in spite of the huge number of engineers produced in India, the industry is still suffering from skills shortage. He said that in the 11 institutions in Gujarat offering degree programs in chemical engineering, evaluation of students appear to be limited to one midterm examination. He said more attention needs to be paid in building intellectual infrastructure.
