Bridging the gap between aspirations and achievements

Welcome To Department of Biotechnology

Introduction

The last three decades of this century saw the concurrent developments of a number of novel and new techniques in biological sciences that not only advanced research tremendously but also carried with them the promise of improvement in the life standard of mankind. Biotechnology not only contributed by developing biological processes complementary to chemical technologies but also provided economical, efficient, clean, pollution free biological technologies. The production of sophisticated bio-chemicals including drugs diagnostics and bacterial leaching of metals from ores by these biotechnological industries has not only replaced the inefficient, resource consuming, often pollution producing chemical technologies but also have exerted an environmental impact by slowing down the depletion of valuable non- renewable resources.

Mission

Mission of the Department is to enhance knowledge of the students in the new spheres of Biotechnology and to acquire new skills and techniques in the field of life sciences by providing them excellent learning environment, quality education and mentoring.

Objectives

  • To provide quality education in the fields of Biotechnology, Genetic Engineering, Molecular Biology and other related fields.
  • To encourage research activities, exploring variety of technically feasible projects having socio-economic importance.
  • To produce quality manpower that can fulfil the needs of tomorrow and compete in national and international arena of research and development.

About Degree Programs

Biotechnology thus, can be defined as industrial processes based on biological systems involving naturally occurring microorganism that have been modified by genetic engineering or isolated cells of plants or animals and the genetic manipulation of cell to produce new strains of plants or animals. Hence use of various biological processes to make products and perform services can be considered encompassed by Biotechnology: and its essential components, therefore, are biological processes which are based on living cells and biochemical molecules like proteins, DNA, RNA, thus making a practical use of the recent scientific advances in areas like molecular genetics. Biotechnology is a multidisciplinary approach having the ability to tailor the genetic material of living organisms. It is expected to bring revolution in human lives in the 21st century as physics did in the 20th century. The department of Biotechnology was established in 2001. Since then it offers admission in 4-Year BS (Honors) program.
