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.
The curriculum also offers a broad variety of core electives that enable the student to choose their career path and specialize in the domain of their choice. Dynamic Interdisciplinary Research environment to support Industrial placement.
Department regularly hosts International Professors to handle courses in cutting edge technologies from premier International Universities such as Orleans University, France and Aarhus University, Denmark. The projects follow world renowed CDIO mode of instruction where students can take up mini projects of their liking at any time of their studies and develop into products and business ideas.
