Department of Biotechnology

The Department of Biotechnology aims to provide excellence in academics and believes in the holistic development of the students. The prime target is to encourage students to reach the pinnacle of success by providing quality education. Supported with dynamic and focused curriculums, well-trained biotechnologists are raised to suit academia/industry/research perspectives. The Department also focuses on inculcating ethical and moral values in the students.

Research, keen observation, and out-of-the-box thinking being the requisites for a successful career in biotechnology is very well promoted and practiced in the department. The department has a qualified faculty having doctoral and post-doctoral research experiences and a focus on research in the areas of Biotechnology / Biological Sciences. The faculty is efficiently involved with their students to enhance their practical knowledge and scientific aptitude. The routine graduate- postgraduate laboratories and specialized research laboratories very well provide the research environment to the students. The Department is involved in multidisciplinary research in the fields of plant metabolic engineering, stress biology, disease resistance, plant tissue culture, molecular virology, and nanobiotechnology.

The Department has been making significant strides in research that is helping graduate and post-graduate students to develop scientific and research aptitude. Department of Biotechnology is funded by National funding agencies including the Department of Science & Technology (DST) and the Council of Scientific & Innovative Research (CSIR).
