About the Department

The Department of Biotechnology, MSEC comprises research laboratories on par with international standard. Faculty of Biotechnology includes well trained, highly qualified and dedicated professors having research and teaching experience from top ranking institutes in India and abroad. B.Tech Biotechnology programme offered by the department is accredited by NBA (National Board of Accreditation), AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education), New Delhi. M.Tech in Biotechnology programme with approval from AICTE commenced in 2011.

The Department library, with a wide collection of reference books offers a range of journals, ejournals, including Elsevier's Science Direct relevant to the ongoing academic and research programs. The department has modern class rooms and laboratories equipped with sophisticated instruments for Genetic Engineering, Bioprocess Engineering and Down stream processing applications. Students are enlightened with the fundamental concepts of Life Sciences and Chemical Engineering to acquire skill sets for manipulating the living organisms and to exploit them for the production of commercially important recombinant products.

Our students are given hands on training in modern tools of Biotechnology in our laboratories. One of the unique characteristics of the courses offered by our department is we are having limited strength of 60 and 18 students per batch for our B.Tech and M.Tech courses, respectively to facilitate effective teaching and learning process.

As many of our illustrious alumni stated 'the department provides intellectual effervescence in a highly stimulating research and academic environment which could mould students to readily fit into challenging industrial and academic settings across the world'.
