"Biotechnology", the latest buzzword is to be the leading sector of growth in the
next decade in India & the world. The expansion of this sector will create more than
one million jobs in India in the next 5 years (India Today, Aug 2004).
Our college has understood the potential of this sector and has started both a Degree
Course & a Post graduate course for the same. Affiliated to the University of Mumbai,
the Biotechnology degree & post graduate course (unaided courses) have
commenced in June 2002 & 2008 respectively. It is considered to be a premier course
with a limited number of students.
Laboratory course work is an integral part of the curriculum, with practicals in all
the above-mentioned subjects. The course lays great emphasis on hands-on
experience thus translating the subjects taught to practical knowledge that the students
are able to grasp, visualize and comprehend. To give the student a dependable & solid
foundation the course also includes industrial visits and excursions.
The department has two laboratories (one for the undergraduate & one for the
post graduates) to conduct the required practical, and also a preparation, inoculation
and an instrument room.
