The Department of Biotechnology offers both master's and under graduate programmes. The department is committed to the furtherance of the scientific enterprise through the establishment of a vigorous research programme, and to contribute to post-graduate level academic programmes to cater to national requirements in basic science as well as agricultural and environmental applications.
Students can expect an academically rigorous and interdisciplinary environment and significant emphasis on laboratory work, emphasizing original, creative thinking and research. To foster student learning several initiatives are taken beyond classroom teaching. These include workshops, talks, paper presentations and field trips.
If you have interest in both Biology and Technology then Biotechnology stream is ideal for you. It combines biological sciences with engineering technologies to manipulate living organisms and biological systems to produce products that advances healthcare, medicine, agriculture, food, pharmaceuticals and environment control.
Biotechnology can be classified into two broad categories: R&D in Biological Sciences and Industrial Processes. The biological sciences aspect deals with research and development in areas such as Microbiology, Cell biology, Genetics, Molecular Biology etc. The industrial processes aspect deals with the production of drugs, vaccines, biofuels and pharmaceuticals on an industrial scale using biochemical processes and techniques.
Some of the best innovations and developments that have come out of Biotechnology and allied fields are: genomic sequencing technology, natural alternatives to pesticides, production of biofuels and developments in stem cells technology.
