About the course

The Department of Biotechnology (DBT) was established in the year 2012 with an undergraduate programme in Biotechnology. Over the years the department has seen exponential growth and has cemented its credentials both in the field of Teaching and Research. Our vision has been to impart quality education to budding biotechnology professionals and also foster strong interdisciplinary research in frontier areas of Biotechnology. Biotechnology department has signed MOUs with Codon Biotech. Pvt. Ltd., Noida & Institute for Industrial Research & Toxicology, Ghaziabad. We also have collaboration with various reputed institutes like IIT Roorkee, GGSIP University Delhi, IET Lucknow, NDRI Karnal, Biotech Park Lucknow, etc. Apart from providing in-depth knowledge of core biotechnology subjects, the students are provided with additional training in soft skills and foreign languages. The Institute offers a lot of opportunities to explore extracurricular activities for holistic and enriching experience to B.Tech. Biotechnology students. Our faculty members are involved in interdisciplinary research in frontier areas such as bioprocess technology, environmental biotechnology, nanotechnology, microbial technology, bioinformatics, genetic engineering to name a few. The grant of research activities includes Projects, Patents & Publications; and commercialization products are also under process.


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; thus making 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
