Mission

  • To emerge as centre of excellence and innovation proactively catalyzing growth of biotechnology through leadership in professional education with concern for social and human values
  • To explore basic science, applied science, and lab science with an industry focus and to act collectively like in enhancing, improving and supporting interdisciplinary research and training
  • To provide quality education in pursuit of knowledge, that establishes a strong foundation for understanding developments in the rapidly advancing field of biotechnology
  • To provide the nation with highly trained professional who are able to implement the scientific principles for the benefit of mankind

Academics

Under Graduate

B.Tech. Biotechnology is exclusively focused in bridging bio-sciences and engineering. Multiple paths have been embedded in the design of the curriculum and created a flexible educational experience comprising biosciences credentials like microbiology and immunology, biochemistry, molecular biology & genetic engineering, plant and animal cell & tissue culture, genomics and proteomics, IPR and bioethics and bioengineering like bioprocess technology, downstream processing, unit operations along with chemical engineering, mathematics and basic engineering subjects.

Post Graduate

The main thrust of the programme was on research support on short-term basis leading towards development and scientific excellence of new products or processes, large-scale demonstrations, validation of R&D leads. This advanced course covers agriculture and related sciences and is designed to suit both manufacturing, and R&D programs. Students are given strong insights into both theoretical and practical aspects of individual courses/subjects.

Research Focus

The Department has been actively doing research in the thrust areas like Biodiesel production, Biofertilizers, waste management, Cancer Biology, medicinal plants, algal Biotechnology and enzyme Biotechnology.

Infrastructure

The department is equipped with state–of-the-art equipments in independent laboratories for Bio-Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Microbiology, Bioprocess Technology,immunology, plant cell and tissue culture, animal cell culture and Chemical Engineering

Library

The department library has a total of 224 Text books and Reference books.
