To impart world class technical education and knowledge base for biotechnology industry, research and education basedon International values, social commitment and conscience.
Biotechnology has created a revolution affecting man the world over in every walk of life. With the discovery of the structure of DNA in 1953, the immense potential that lies in biotechnology has become evident. Today, scientists from every branch of science are looking at biological models to solve their problems. Industries are keenly watching the developments and are eager to adopt biotechnology. Some of the sick industries have abandoned their ongoing programmes and adopted biotechnology which has helped them not only survive but prosper. Biotechnology has brought new hope for the remediation and conservation of environment. In the field of medicine, be it drug designing, drug delivery, replacing damaged tissues or gene therapy, biotechnology is in the forefront.
Biotechnology operates at the molecular level of life, where the seemingly solid boundary between species disappears. More generally biotechnology is an umbrella term that covers various fields including Microbiology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Immunology, Cell Biology, etc.
Having opened a great avenue for education and employment for the young, our College has now launched itself on to the international stream of imparting knowledge and developing skills in the areas of life science that has directly contributed to the welfare of mankind.
Concepts in Biotechnology are derived from experiments and powerful experimental tools. The reputation of the Department is based on the practical utility and quality of the equipment that is available to the students. The department has a good collection of various sophisticated and state -of-the -art equipments from around the world such as Centrifuge and PCR from Eppendorf (Germany) and Gel Documentation System from Bio-rad (USA), Straight Trinocular Microscope and Inverted Microscope from Carl Zeiss (Germany) and CO2 Incubator from Mini Galaxy (UK), to mention a few.
Since its establishment in June 2002, the department has been striving to achieve excellence through state - of the - art facilities such as the following:
