Biotechnology

Biotechnology is an interdisciplinary science aiming at application of biological sciences to develop industrial processes and technologies for creating marketable products. This field has enormous potential and has spawned novel industries and improved the profitability of established ones through biological means, which consumes less energy, depend upon renewable resources , protect the environment including biodiversity and above all to improve the quality of life. The sustained vibrant expansion of life sciences in general and molecular genetics as well as genomics in particular have opened up new vistas for the industrial application and has become panacea for the economic development of the world. It virtually spearheading a second industrial revolution for the economic emanicipation in the 21st century.

             In view of the enormous  potential of biotechnology as a growth engine of our country‚Äôs economy, the college has already started an undergraduate course in Biotechnology in combination with basic courses, Chemistry, Botany/Zoology.
