Central Institute is to become an apex Institute of International repute in the field of Polymer Science & Technology and ensure sustainable growth.
Central Institute of Plastics Engineering & Technology (CIPET) was established in 1968 by Government of India with the assistance of United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) at Chennai. The main objective of setting up of the institute was to develop manpower in different disciplines of Plastics Engineering & Technology as no similar institute was in existence in the country. International Labour Organization (ILO) served as the executing agency. During the initial project period between 1968 and 1973, the institute achieved the targets envisaged and was rated as one of the most successful UNDP projects implemented worldwide.
Today CIPET is a premier national institution under the Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilizers, Govt. of India fully devoted to Skill Development, Technology Support Services, Academic and Research (STAR) in all the domains of plastics viz:- Design, CAD/CAM/CAE, Tooling & Mould Manufacturing, Plastics processing, Testing and Quality Assurance. CIPET operates from various locations spread across the country catering the needs of Polymer and allied industries.
Imperative need was felt to establish CIPET -- the unique institute of its kind in the country and even today the institute holds a premier position. The primary objective of CIPET has been contributing towards the growth of the plastics industry through a combined program of education and research. The Institute has evolved through the years, creating closer ties with industries with the intent to create innovative plastic based solutions which are resource efficient and marketable.
1. It is the pride and proud moment of CIPET to celebrate its golden anniversary of sustaining excellence in the field of Plastics Engineering and Technology.
2. CIPET believes strongly in sustainability and enriching institute-industry interface in accordance with the environment policies of the country while still being fit-for-purpose.
3. Unique Institute of its kind in the whole of South East Asia where the entire gamut of Skill Development Programs, Academic Programs and R & D activities in the field of Polymer Science & Technology are carried out under one roof.
