About the Department
The Department of Biotechnology was established in the year 2001 with the a im of imparting quality higher education in Biotechnology. The Department currently offers two programs: B.Sc Biotechnology and M.Sc Biotechnology under the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS), helps students to choose subjects based on their areas of interest. The Department is working to enhance and build up the young talents by producing competent students to excel in research in the areas of Biotechnology. With the focus to provide excellent environment for holistic development the Department is actively involved in organizing Conferences, Seminars, Workshops, Trainings and Entrepreneurship programmes. The Department organizes various guest lectures by eminent scientists from Research Institutes to provide exposure in research areas. Field visits to Industrial and Research Institutes are regularly arranged. It’s pioneering curriculum with interdisciplinary areas focusing on practical training in environmental biotechnology, immunology, animal biotechnology, plant biotechnology, stem cell technology, Recombinant technology, protein engineering, molecular cell biology and Bioinformatics are highly valued.
The Department has well equipped laboratories with latest instruments. The Department has a total four laboratories viz. UG , PG, Animal biotechnology and Plant biotechnology laboratory.
The Department has a well-equipped laboratory with modern equipments: CO2 incubator, UV-Visible spectrophotometer, PCR machine, monocular and binocular microscopes, Deep freezer, UV transilluminator, , high speed cooling centrifuge, digital colorimeter, gel documentation system, hot air oven, incubators, orbital shakers, Lyophiliser, Microtome, HPLC, Ultrasonicator and tissue Homogeniser which enable the students to carry out basic research activities under the guidance of the faculty.
To create awareness of the recent discoveries and inventions of life sciences among the students, the Biotechnology department has started a club “Technosaviour” in the year 2018. It encourages students to participate in the events conducted by the club and thereby nurtures the students to improvise their skill in varied platforms of life sciences.
In order to make students employable in the industry we motivate students to register in SWAYAM-NPTEL online certification courses in the areas of sciences and humanities with exposure to relevant tools and technologies.
- To impart highly innovative and technical knowledge in the field of biotechnology
- To create opportunities for multi-disciplinary education, training and research in biotechnology.
- To expand the scope of Industry -Academia interaction towards commercialization of bioproducts.
Our vision is to produce competent Biotechnologists with profound expertise, providing sustainable competitive edge to present society with entrepreneurial skills.
