Biotechnology being a field of all realms of life sciences as well as related fields of technology offers a comprehensive knowledge of both fundamentals as well as applications in different branches of Biotechnology in order to meet the present and future needs. Advanced level knowledge will be offered in Genetics, Genomics, Proteomics, Immunology, Molecular Biology, Recombinant DNA technology, Plant, Animal, Microbial and Nano Biotechnology, Clinical Biochemistry and Biophysics as well as Bioinformatics. Laboratory and skill based training in the relevant field has been strongly emphasized. Foundation courses comprising of English language and Literature, Communicative English and developing writing skill, Computer C-programming along with computer application in Biology and Environmental Science with an emphasis on energy resources are the highlights of the unique course structure. Interaction with industry and national research labs, students’ seminar and independent project work have been introduced in order to update the students of recent development in Biotechnology. Our vision is to be the Centre of Excellence in the field of Biotechnology equipped to educate students who will work for the welfare of the society.
