The Department of Biotechnology was established in the academic year 2002-2003. The field of Biotechnology plays a vital role in our day-to-day life. Biotechnology is applied in the fields of Industry, Agriculture, Horticulture, Pharmacy and Animal Husbandry.
BiotechnologyÂ is a field of applied biology that involves the use of living organisms and bioprocesses in engineering,Â technology, medicine and other fields requiringÂ bio-products. It is one of the fast growing career fields in India and abroad. The verticals under this programme vary from food technology, nutrition, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, forensic sciences, cosmetic applications, etc.
The existing Biotechnology Department of our College is well organized with three storied building, at the cost of Rs.2.5 Crores. All the laboratories are well established with sophisticated equipments at a total cost of Rs.3 Crores. Laboratories of Biotechnology Department are very modern and are functioning effectively with imported costly equipments like Gas Chromatography, PCR, Fermentor, Gel Documentation, Fluorescence Microscope, ELISA Reader, western blotting, Lyophilizer, CO2 incubator etc. to match the benchmark standard of esteemed institutions worldwide.
