If you are passionate about Biology, Medicine, Life, the removal of human and animal suffering through technology, then Biotechnology is the right choice for you ! Biotechnology is strongly rooted in Biological Sciences and Engineering and has multiple applications primarily in the Medical, Pharmaceutical, Industrial and Agricultural sectors. A Biotechnologist directly manipulates the molecules of life within the Cell (DNA, Gene sequences within the DNA, Protein).
There is a tremendous increase in the use of Biotechnology for developing solutions to other industries. Biocomposites and Enzymes made from controlled bioprocesses are revolutionizing the materials industry. Advanced biotechnological concepts in the areas of Bioenergy and Biofuels are creating newer avenues in sustainability and directly influence the nation’s economy.
The student undertaking the B.Tech Biotechnology course will gain insights on both the Biological Sciences and engineering. The curriculum broadly covers Life-Science subjects such as Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Cell Biology. The Engineering aspect of Biotechnology comes forth through understanding of biotechnology specific Engineering subjects like Genetic Engineering, Bioprocess Engineering, Biological Mass Transfer, Biochemical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Upstream and Downstream engineering.
