Head of the Department of Biotechnology

Department of Biotechnology was established in the year 2002 with the vision to be recognised as a Department of International repute to teach and train students in the interdisciplinary areas in biological science and engineering. The department is offering undergraduate programme in Biotechnology to cater the needs of the industry.

The students are motivated to develop dynamic professionalism to become the best biotechnologist and entrepreneurs. Modern Biotechnology has application in medicine, food, agriculture industry and environmental sector. The department is approved by Visvesvaraiah Technological University as a research centre to carry out research work in the frontiers of Biotechnology.

We have highly qualified and dedicated faculty with specialization in agriculture Biotechnology, food Biotechnology, nanotechnology, medical Biotechnology, and environmental Biotechnology. We have highly equipped laboratories.

Total intake of the department is 30. For the past ten years we have achieved 100% results in the final year university examination conducted by Visvesvaraiah Technological University, Belgaum. We have produced two university rank holders. Ten of the final year research projects were financially supported by Karnataka State Council for Science technology, Bangalore.

Biotechnology is a research oriented field and one third of our students are already pursuing Masters and Doctoral program in India, USA, Europe, North America and Australia. Our students are placed in companies such as Biocon, Monsanto, Cell works, Nicholas Piramal Life Sciences, XL Life Sciences, IMT Technologies etc.

The department has published more than 60 research papers in the National and International Journals and Published three Text Books. These were prescribed text book for VTU, Annamallai University, Chennai, University of Calicut, Northern Maharashtra University and SRM University. Biotechnology is the fastest growing knowledge based sector in India. With the country offering R&D facilities, knowledge, skills, and cost effectiveness, the biotechnologist has greater role to play.
