B.Sc. Biotechnology

INTRODUCTION:

Biotechnology is an interdisciplinary field that combines biological sciences with engineering technologies to manipulate living organisms and biological systems to produce products. The advent of biotechnology has expanded into diverse sciences like microbiology, cell biology, genetics, biochemistry, immunology, virology, plant physiology, proteomics and genetic engineering.
VISION:

Our vision is 

  • To produce competent Biotechnologists who can employ premium processes and applications which will profoundly influence existing paradigm of agriculture, industry, healthcare and restoration of environment providing sustainable competitive edge to present society.
  • To provide services in the areas of research, infrastructure, generation of human resource, popularization of biotechnology, promotion of industries, creation of centers of excellence,
  • To implement biosafety guidelines for genetically modified organisms and recombinant DNA products and biotechnology-based programs for societal benefits. Bioinformatics is a major mission to establish an information network for the scientific community, nationally and internationally.
MISSION:
  • To provide Biotechnology educational Program with impetus to generate quality workforce.
  • To create awareness about potentials of Biotechnology with socio-ethical implications.
  • To instill spirit of innovation and creativity in young minds with sound research aptitude.
  • To nurture confident individuals who are effective contributors towards the growth of the nation.
SCOPE
  • The department of Biotechnology is aimed at imparting the practical skills and knowledge, to develop cognitive ability of the graduates which will make them as frontiers in biotechnology,
  • We aim to provide interdisciplinary research and educational opportunities to solve problems that will improve the quality of life for those suffering from health-related diseases and disorders.
  • To decide and apply appropriate tools and techniques in biotechnological manipulation.
  • To kindle the spirit of innovation and creativity in young minds with sound research aptitude.
