HOD's Desk


The Department commenced its academic journey in the year 2008 with a vision to create a strong teaching base in the area of Biotechnology through technical knowledge dissemination to the students. The curriculum is best suited for the present day needs of the industrial sectors. The department is proud to have bright and talented students from diverse background. Students are encouraged to carry-out in-house projects, attend seminars, conferences and also to publish their research findings in peer reviewed journals. The students won many prizes in various state level symposium, extracurricular and co-curricular activities held by other institute, some of them represented college at university level.T he Department also organizes visit to research laborites and other related industries to enable students to broaden their view about the course. As a Head of Department, I am proud o say that the Department is consistently obtaining AKTU ranks and once topped the university.

About the Department

Vision:- "To provide an eminent platform for teaching, learning, innovations and research in biotechnology and deliver solutions for the up-liftment of mankind, environment and global society through biotechnological approaches". Mission :- • M1: To provide hands-on training, technical skills and facilitate research and higher education to transform divyang students into successful technocrats in the field of biotechnology . • M2: To conduct interactive programs with leading scientist, entrepreneurs and technocrats to achieve wider prospective of biotechnology based industries and research. • M3: The core mission of the department is to create opportunities for students in general and Divyangs in particular through multi-disciplinary education, training and research in biotechnology. Further, goal is to develop skilled human resource tailored to drive innovations in biotechnology, and fill the talent gaps in the deficient areas to reach the ambition of “Atmanirbhar Bharat” Biotechnology and Bioinformatics are specialized scientific areas focused towards providing better quality of life. Biotechnology makes use of natural biological process for the benefit of mankind. Objective- to train students in the fields of Biotechnology.
