About The Department

Biotechnology is the use of living systems and organisms to develop or make products, or “any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use”
(UN Convention on Biological Diversity, Art. 2)

At its simplest, biotechnology is technology based on biology – biotechnology harnesses cellular and biomolecular processes to develop technologies and products that help improve our lives and the health of our planet.We the department of biotechnology began functioning in the year 2002, with teachers and students in for Bachelors and in 2003 for Masters as well.
