|About the Department
The Biotechnology Department was established in 2007 with student intake of 30 for B Tech degree
programme under self sustain mode. Later on M Tech degree programme started in the academic session
2013-14 as a regular programme with intake of 18.
Presently there are 8 teaching faculty members in the Department in various specialisations like
Protein Engineering, Pharmaceutical Biotechnology Industrial microbiology, Bioprocess Engineering,
Environmental Engineering, Bioinformatics and Animal Biotechnology.
The academic performance of the B Tech students in the University Exams is very much satisfactory.
The placement percentage for the students in last five years is also encouraging. The Department
is actively engaged in a good number of consultancy jobs like structural vetting and material
testing for the consultants in our laboratory.
In last five years, the faculty members have published a good no of papers in national and
The Department organises workshops and seminars every year for the interest of students and faculty
of this Department. The Annual Technical Bulletin named ‘ESSENCE’ is published every year by this
department with a view to provide the faculty and students a platform to show their talents and
innovative ideas. The department also organises study visits for the students to the industries
and national institutes. Also advance training programmes are arranged for the benefit of students
inviting Professors from IITs/NITs and professional field experts under aegis of TEQIP.
