BIOTECHNOLOGY is the integrated form of biochemistry, microbiology and engineering sciences serving to the human welfare. It has rapidly emerged as an area of activity having a marked realized as well as potential impact on virtually all domains of human prosperity, ranging from health, medicine, animal health, animal husbandry, dairy, food processing and beverages, crime and parentage disputes, agriculture, forestry, horticulture, floriculture, environment, renewable energy and fuels, population control, mining, fisheries. In the department, the enrolled students are provided a complete background of all the important aspects of the subject through qualified faculty, well equipped laboratories with equipment such as autoclave, laminar airflow, high speed centrifuge, horizontal & vertical electrophoresis, chromatographic techniques, cooling centrifuge, Thermocycler, Computerized UV-VIS spectrophotometer, orbital shaker, soxhlet, hot air oven, dot ELISA, Sandwich ELISA, incubator, Gel Doc etc.
Department also have a bioinformatics laboratory with the high speed internet facility to access the bioinformatics database from NCBI and pubmed and a library with quality books and journals for the ready referencing to the faculty and students. The department provides information for the employability with the alliance of College Career Advisory Cell. The department keeps close affairs with the potential industries and research laboratories to make accessible for the students for internships.
Students of Biotechnology often choose careers in Research such as CSIR, DST, DBT, ICMR, MOEF, DRDO and TIFR. If you have acquired a post-graduate degree in Biotechnology then you can easily find a suitable position in both private and government sector undertakings. Major recruiters include industries engaged in processing and developing agricultural and biological products, bio- processing industries, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. There are ample opportunities in industries producing healthcare products, textile industry, cosmetics and organisations engaged in different types of industrial research and development. Besides this teaching at college and university level can be opted after post-graduation
