“The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence”
– Rabindranath Tagore

Amalgamation of biology and technology is biotechnology. Biotechnology is an interdisciplinary science which encompasses areas viz. Molecular Biology, Genetics, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Virology, Plant and Animal tissue culture, Chemistry and Engineering. It is a fast emerging “cutting edge” science with distinctive advantages as it finds applications in practically all aspects of life. The subject offers exciting opportunities in various fields from basic research to an industry oriented career.

Keeping in view of the applications of biotechnology in every field, surely there is going to be a perpetual demand for resource personnel with biotechnology as specialization. Our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes are aimed to cater this ever increasing demand and to groom students to excel in their future career.

Hence, the main objective of the Department is to provide academic training and conduct research in the interdisciplinary areas of biotechnology with particular emphasis on extending the knowledge generated from these studies towards the development of technologies of commercial significance. Therefore, all the basic infrastructural facilities needed for conducting teaching and research programs in different areas of Biotechnology have been developed in the department.

The Department of Biotechnology made its modest beginning in 2002 with the commencement of B.TECH – Biotechnology with an approved intake of 60 seats per year
