About the course
The department of Biotechnology was established in 2012 with an undergraduate programme in Biotechnology. The department is actively engaged in the various fields of biotechnology like Industrial Biotechnology, Environmental Biotechnology, Medical Biotechnology, Plant & Animal Sciences and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology. B.Tech. Biotechnology is exclusively focused in bridging the bio-sciences and bio-engineering for the benefit of mankind. Multiple paths have been embedded in the design of the curriculum and created a flexible educational experience comprising biosciences credentials like microbiology and immunology, biochemistry, molecular biology & genetic engineering, plant and animal cell & tissue culture, genomics and proteomics, IPR and bioethics and bioengineering like bioprocess technology, downstream processing, unit operations along with chemical engineering, mathematics and basic engineering subjects. The highlight of the syllabus is the practical knowledge that students gain through in-plant training, projects, and educational tours. We aim to provide our students a perfect blend of intellectual and practical experiences that help them to serve the society and address a variety of needs. The department comprises a team of qualified and dedicated faculty with strong base of technical staff. The department has well equipped laboratories as follows:
e. Molecular Biology
f. Enzyme Engineering
g. Food Biotechnology
h. Genetic Engineering
i. Plant Biotechnology
j. Bioprocess Engineering
k. Fermentation Biotechnology
l. Environmental Biotechnology
m. Central Instrumentation Facility (CIF)
n. Molecular Dynamics & Bioenergetics
To transform the department into Centre of Excellence with advanced research in cutting edge areas of Biotechnology and to inculcate problem-solving skills in the budding bio-technocrats and make them capable of meeting emerging challenges in education and industry.
1. To develop state of the art research facilities in the field of biotechnology to fulfill global requirements of human resources.
2. To impart quality education to the students and to enhance their technical skills to make them globally competitive.
3. To encourage the culture of continuous learning and adopt advanced technologies to solve complex problems. 4. To impart academics, corporate and entrepreneurial leadership in our students along with global awareness required by the engineering profession.
4. To inculcate social and ethical values in graduates for progressive attainment at the social level.
