CIPET or Central Institute of Plastics Engineering and Technology is an autonomous institute under the department of chemicals and petrochemicals, Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, Government of India.[1][2]

Introduction[edit]

CIPET headquarters was established at Chennai in 1968 with UNDP assistance. It receives funding support from the administration ministry, OPEC, UNIDO and the World Bank. It is believed that CIPET was founded by Brigadier. A F. Eugene. who is also the founder of MES. CIPET is an ISO 9001:2008 QMS, NABL, ISO/IEC 17020 accredited premier national Institution devoted to Academic, Technology Support & Research (ATR) activities for the growth of Polymer & allied industries in the country. CIPET operates on hub & spokes model with 23 locations spread across the length & breadth of the country. CIPET has 16 centres at Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Aurangabad, Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Chennai, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Hajipur, Haldia, Imphal, Jaipur, Kochi, Lucknow, Mysore and Panipat. All the CIPET centres have state of art infrastructural facilities in the areas of Design, CAD/CAM/CAE, Tooling & Mould Manufacturing, Plastics processing, Testing and Quality control to cater to the needs of Polymer & allied industries in the country.

To provide qualified Human Resources to the industry, CIPET offers a blend of specialized academic Programs in the field of Plastics Engineering & Technology, be it Doctoral, Post Graduate, Undergraduate, Post Diploma or Diploma.

To upgrade the skill & technical competency of personnel employed in plastics industry, CIPET offers a wide range of short-duration, skill-cum-technology up-gradation Programs at all centers. The academic atmosphere in CIPET is a rare blend of modern day technical skills with a traditional emphasis on imparting technical knowledge. The highly trained and motivated team of faculty at CIPET has achieved enviable excellence in manpower development.

Every year CIPET trains about 10000 students through long-term Programs and about 20000 trainees through short-term Programs with hands-on experience with the most modern sophisticated facilities in Design, CAD/CAM, Tool Room, Plastics Processing and the Plastics Testing & Quality Control. With a strong Alumni base of about 40,000 professionals across the world “CIPET” is indeed a recognized qualifying brand for supervisory and managerial manpower for the plastics industries.

CIPET renders Technology Support Services in Design, Tooling, Plastics Processing, and Testing & Quality Assurance in India and abroad. The Plastics Testing Centre (PTC) at CIPET is equipped with state of the art equipments and is recognized as one of the best plastics testing facilities in Asia. Several Central & State Govt organizations utilize CIPET’s expertise for consultancy services and as a third party inspection agency for plastics products. The biodegradable testing centre of CIPET is first of its kind in the country works jointly with Europian Bioplastics & International Biodegradable products Institute.

Envisioned to be a Global R&D Hub, CIPET has established two exclusive R & D wings at Chennai and Bhubaneswar. The Advanced Research School for Technology & Product Simulation - ARSTPS at Chennai focuses on Innovative Product Design for Automobile, Aerospace, Medical and Packaging Industries, product and Tool Design Conceptualization, E- Manufacturing of Prototypes, Rapid Prototyping for Lead Time Reduction, Reverse Engineering for Metal Substitution with Aesthetic and Ergonomical Approach. The Laboratory for Advanced Research in Polymeric Materials (LARPM) at Bhubaneswar concentrates on Bio polymers, E Waste Recycling , Polymer Composites & Nanocomposites, Characterization of Blends , Alloys, and Fuel Cells. The Main Objectives of the R & D wings are to jointly collaborate R&D projects with the industry, and with Indian and Foreign Universities, to develop working Prototypes, to find Solutions to Engineering Problems, and to conduct Micro-analysis on behavior of Materials, Structures and Mechanical Systems.

CIPET has been recognised by Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR) as a scientific and research organisation in the field of Plastics Engineering & Technology.

CIPET has signed a Memorandum of Agreement with several leading International Universities for faculty & student exchange Programs, bilateral R & D initiatives and collaborative research projects.
