B.Sc. Biotechnology

Computer Science

The UG Department of Biotechnology was established in 2005. The Department has well furnished laboratory which would suit the students to explore a variety of domains seeking answers to prevent life threatening diseases, energy and food requirements of ever-growing population, upcoming pharmaceutical drugs and solving the environmental issues.

The department aims to provide students with subject-specific knowledge, as well as a critical, analytical and flexible approach to problem solving in the field of biotechnology. It also instills in the minds of the students, a critical awareness of advances at the forefront of biotechnology. The department has produced Five University ranks to its credit, since its inception.

Association Activities

Genetricks, the Association of Biotechnology conducts variety of events to develop and bring out the talents of students in various related fields. The department releases its annual magazine “Biovistas” to bring out the hidden skills of the students. Workshops for plus two students are organized on Basic Techniques of Biotechnology, Workshops on DNA isolation & DNA fingerprinting are organized for college students. These programs create awareness about life sciences, its scope & relevance and motivate them to take up the subject as a career option.

Students are made to participate in workshops, hands on training programs, symposiums and conferences, present and publish papers. Guidance and support is provided for all sorts of life-science related competitive exams. Industrial visits are oraganised frequently wherein students are exposed to various kinds of labs.
