Course programme

B. Tech course in Biotechnology has been started from 2005 with intake of 60 students. The department strives to emerge as a leader in providing excellent education in Biotechnology and to develop cutting-edge technology through research, training and technical innovation. The department has highly qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty to provide both classroom teaching and practical instructions.
The department actively engages in relevant, contemporary and state-of-the-art research with several scholars enrolled for the Ph.D. program. Research is going on in the department in different areas of Biotechnology including Environmental Biotechnology, Microbial Biotechnology, Molecular Biotechnology, Food Biotechnology etc.
Since commencement, the department has performed consistently well both in academics and extra-curricula. While two of the students have been nominated for the prestigious KVPV fellowship by the Govt. of India, several have gone out in the professional world already and presented their research in technical symposia around the country. A number of our students are members of various organizations both in and beyond their core-biotechnology fields, namely the Literary Circcle, the drama Society, the Centre for Cognitive Activities and Linux Users Group.
The department is starting the M.Tech. Program in 2009, The department also promotes sharing of knowledge through summer schools, conference, seminars and symposia. The department looks forward to another glorious year of teaching, learning, perfoming and growing.
