Class Description

Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology (B.Sc. Biotechnology) is a full-time 3 years (6 semesters) graduation course with choice based credit system (CBCS). It is an area of multi-disciplinary sciences, involving a variety of distinct subjects where living organisms or their derivatives are modified and put into effective use in catering the welfare of humanity. Applications of Biotechnology have been found in several sectors, including Agriculture, Food Science and Medicine. Realizing the immense potential of Biotechnology in opening up newer avenues of employment and the need for skilled and trained human resources, graduate programme in Biotechnology is offered.

This three year degree course is structured in such a way that the students get an opportunity to explore in depth the theoretical and practical aspects in various areas of Biotechnology. The course introduces the students to detailed study of biological molecules, cell biology, genetics, microbiology, bio-instrumentation, molecular biology, recombinant DNA technology, immunology, genetic engineering, environmental biotechnology, animal biotechnology and plant biotechnology and makes a student a bio-technologist who can pursue further and contribute to this field in the area of one’s interest.

Objectives of the Program

  • To impart basic knowledge and skills of various aspects of biotechnology
  • To train the students for industrial need and to pursue further education
  • To inculcate entrepreneurship among the students so as to start their own ventures in the field of biotechnology
