B.Tech in Biotechnology and Biochemical Engineering
Biotechnology has the potential to transform the industry and to develop ‘green' or environmentally friendly solutions to the contamination of nature by pollutants. Bioprocess plays a key role in manufacturing pharmaceuticals, biomaterials and agents for gene and cell therapies. In addition, biological approaches play a pivotal role in the processing of new classes of renewable commodity sources. The four-year undergraduate B.Tech programme in Biotechnology being offered in the department has the main objectives to train students as leaders in research and development in industry and to produce good quality production engineers to cater to the needs of industries in the field of biotechnology and other allied fields. The curriculum of the course encompasses latest development in the field as well as present day and future needs of the industry. This undergraduate programme covers both greater depth and breadth due to its extensive course requirements. The curriculum includes courses in biological sciences, chemical and biochemical engineering together with compulsory industrial training. An array of electives gives an opportunity for greater depth in both biology and engineering applications. Relative to many peer institutions, the undergraduate course offered in the department is enhanced due to a high level of interdisciplinary and cross-institution research and training interactions.
