Department Profile


Department Profile

Biotechnology is a broad discipline which deals with various techniques employing biological processes, organisms (Microbes, plants and animals), cells or any biological material for a multitude of applications. The undergraduate course (B.Sc., Biotechnology) is aimed at providing a glimpse of all basic concepts that can be applied across various fields of biological sciences.

The students are exposed to the major biotechnological practices hands on during this tenure. The syllabi are framed in such a way so as to facilitate the students to face and get through joint entrance exams. Upon completion of this degree, the students have great avenues where they can opt for higher studies, jobs in various industrial sectors and they can also take up research in both India and abroad.

The department of Biotechnology was established in the year 2005. It is the youngest and vibrant department in the institution. Since its inception, the department has shown exponential growth with many accolades in curricular and co-curricular activities. The Department functions with eight well qualified faculties and a fully equipped laboratory suitable for performing various biotechnological experiments.

The department has an academic club named after the eminent scientist Bolivar. The Bolivar club organises frequent invited lectures in different scientific topics by various scientists and academicians with expertise in various aspects of Biology. The department students have obtained 62 university ranks till date and each year they have secured the University First Rank till 2018 and eight students have received Gold medals.

Despite of being the youngest department, we have attracted financial support of approximately Rs. 19.5 Lakhs from different esteemed funding agencies like Indian Academy of Sciences, Bengaluru, Indian National Academy, New Delhi and National Academy of Sciences, Allahabad. The department students and staff actively take part in various academic activities like seminars, conferences, workshops etc., across the country.

Our students have been placed in various companies through campus placement and many of our students went to pursue their higher studies like Masters and Doctoral degree. The department strongly motivates the students towards research and higher studies by providing such an ambience so as to facilitate learning in all possible ways.
