Biotechnology is one of the most revolutionary and beneficial scientific advances of the last quarter century. It is an interdisciplinary science including not only biology but also subjects like mathematics, physics, chemistry and many more. It is a conglomeration of various combined technologies applied to living cells for production of a particular product or enhancing its quality according to our preferences. Biotech is undoubtedly the future. Genetics engineering, genomics, bio-computing, biomedical engineering, biosensors, bioinformatics, etc. will be the hot topics for the next decade or so. Its application varies from agriculture to industry - food, pharmaceutical, chemical, bio-products, textiles, medicine, nutrition, environmental conservation, animal sciences etc.
The program has been designed to bridge the gap between industry requirements and the growing demand for skilled manpower in life science sector. Hands on training in practical techniques, which are being, used commonly like culture methods, biochemical techniques etc. are provided. Students also examine a range of practical applications.
Biotechnology has rapidly emerged as an area of having marked impact on almost all domains of human welfare ranging of plant science, food processing, protecting environment, production and proactively trade and economy. Contribution of biotech products to global markets has been around $100 billion and countries to be on the rise. In India, the demand for such products is of the over $80 billion. Major demand has been in area of human health, agriculture and industrial products. Projection shows that there will be thousands of unfilled science and technology jobs in these areas of biotechnology.
