The institute

This is the only institute of this kind in India where all facilities like design, tooling, processing and testing of plastics are available under one roof.[citation needed] CIPET caters to the needs of plastic industries through manpower training, processing, design and CAD/CAM/CAE, testing, consultancy, advisory and developmental services.

To meet the needs of plastics conversion industry, CIPET has established extension centres in various states of the country. Each centre of the CIPET has been equipped with the state-of-the-art machinery[peacock term] in the area of mould/product design and development, CAD, plastic processing and testing/quality control. Apart from developing training manpower and technical services for plastics industries, each centre has been entrusted with a specific thrust area for development.


CIPET established 15 state-of-the-art[peacock term] centres spreading across the country. Admission to these centres are through the joint entrance examination[disambiguation needed ] (JEE) conducted every year by CIPET.[3] [4]

This is one of the leading institutes[peacock term] under the ministry of chemicals and fertilizers which leads in chemical research. This offers a course in polymer nanotechnology as post graduate studies.

CIPET Chennai&Lucknow offers courses in plastic technology and manufacturing technology. CIPET Chennai is the head office of all CIPET centres which was started on 1968.CIPET is now carrying B-Tech. courses since 2008 in Lucknow under UPTU(now GBTU)and other 3 zones.
