About Us


  • Brief History:


The Department of Biotechnology commenced with the B.Tech. program in Biotechnology in 2005. The M.Tech. program was subsequently introduced in 2009. The department is steadily emerging as a leader in providing excellent education at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels in Biotechnology and in developing cutting-edge technology through research, training, and technical innovation. The curriculum and syllabi have been framed to meet the challenges of the growing demand of the Biotechnology sector in India.

Since commencement, the department has consistently performed well. Students have already made their mark in higher education and in the professional world in India and abroad. They routinely get selected for summer internships in the best academic institutes in India and abroad. They also get selected in prestigious programs such as the Khorana Program, KVPY fellowship, Indian Academy of Science fellowship, etc.  Students qualify in GATE and NET with high scores and ranks and are well placed in industries and in academia.

The department is growing consistently since its inception and now has more than forty research scholars working in various research projects. More than ten students have received their Ph.D degree from the department and are well placed in academia. The department has plans to start two advanced centres in Life Science and in Bioprocess Technology respectively. There is a Biotech Society under which a seminar series is organized. Prominent scientists from India and abroad routinely give invited talks in our department.

The department of Biotechnology has research projects worth Rs. 5.6 crore funded by DBT, DST, UGC and The Institution of Engineers, India. Faculty members have research collaborations with various institutes in India and abroad. The department encourages Industry-Institute interaction and faculty members have collaborations with BPCL, OIL, IOCL and Krish Biotech Ltd. The department has published more than hundred papers in peer reviewed scientific journals in recent years and written books/book chapters. Faculty members routinely act as reviewer of scientific publications, examiner and paper setter of other universities and institutes. They are routinely invited to deliver talks and are also invited as Visiting Faculty/Scientist in universities and institutes in India and abroad.
