B.Tech Biotechnology

B.Tech Biotechnology

The Department of Biotechnologywas established in the year 2010 with an undergraduate program in Biotechnology. Over the years the department has seen exponential growth and has cemented its credentials both in the field of Teaching and Research. Our vision has been to impart quality education to budding biotechnology professionals and also foster strong interdisciplinary research in frontier areas of Biotechnology.

Biotechnology is the use of living systems and organisms to develop or make useful products, or “any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use” Biotechnology unifies biology and technology by covering a wide range of subjects like agriculture, animal husbandry, biochemistry, bio-statistics, cell biology, chemistry, crop management, cropping system, ecology, engineering, genetics, health, immunology, medicine, microbiology, plant physiology, soil science, soil conservation, seed technology, and virology, etc. Scope of biotechnology in India There is an immense possibility of getting jobs in this field as the demand for biotechnologists is growing in India as well as abroad.

It is estimated that more than 60000 biotechnologists of top skill are required in India as per the survey made by the Human Resource Development Ministry.

To become a prime influencer in the field of Biotechnology and provide a vibrant learning environment to the students that will have a transformative impact on the society in terms of academics, research and entrepreneurship.

Intake : – 120 seats
Duration :- 4 years

HOD Message

We welcome you to the Department of Biotechnology, Seth VishambharNath Institute of Engineering and Technology. All the basic infrastructural facilities needed for conducting teaching and research in different areas of Biotechnology have been developed in the department, so that better facilities are ensured to our present and prospective students.

Besides guiding students to excel in their academics, the Department strives hard to instill a sense of curiosity in budding scientists and encourages them to participate in activities aimed at nourishing their inherent talent. Regular conferences, extension lectures and training workshops are arranged at the department to give our students the necessary exposure to compete at the national level.

It is my firm belief that in due course of time and with proper funding and direction, the department will rise to its true potential and establishes itself as a leading center for imparting degree level education and training in biotechnology, in the state. We endeavor to develop Biotechnology Department into a nationally recognized center of research and education. The best is yet to come.

Thank you for visit !

With Best Wishes,
Head - Department of Biotechnology
