B.Tech/BE Biotechnology

The B.Tech/BE Biotechnology is a 4-years undergraduate course that is divided into 8-semesters. The course syllabus aims to provide knowledge regarding the integration of biology and technology and the application of the same in real life. It is the field of applied science which requires the usage of organisms, principles of chemical engineering and bioprocessing. The course is designed to enhance the candidates with basic engineering concepts and move onto the applied in developing products out of living organisms or enhance product stability and analysing properties possessed by each organism and their chemical behaviour. The course deals with the in-depth study of biological and chemical components that are part of the day to day life and how technology and engineering concepts can be used to convert these living organisms into customised products and also use them to enhance the performance of a pre-existing product in domains such as medical, pharmaceutical, genetic etc.
