HOD's Desk

Welcome to our department....The concept of biotechnology can be conceived very broadly as any use of biological organisms or processes in industrial, medical, agricultural and environmental engineering. Post human genome sequencing, the field has seen growth of India's biotech industry and is estimated to increase in FY25 to USD100 billion. The field offers potential for growth in the research & development apart from the service industry. Availability of skilled workforce in this broad domain is a challenge the country faces. Since 2000, we at the department of biotechnology have been creating skilled manpower and have already seen our alumni across the globe contributing in the development of this field. Our ecosystem encourages entrepreneurship and support start up towards reaping the benefits the field has to offer. The faculty & students have all along been associated with the nation's initiative to address the problems through R&D and societal outreach.
