The Department was established in the year 2005 for post graduate studies in Biotechnology under the self-finance scheme.
It was started in a hall in the session 2005-06 which now has shifted to its new building “डा0 लालजी सिंह जैवप्रौद्योगिकीभवन”.
The Department attracts students from all over the country. The department has two year full time course of M.Sc.
Biotechnology with an intake of thirty students. From the date of beginning, the department has been making full efforts
to make the students well trained and upto the mark. So far, 15 batches of M.Sc. Biotechnology have been passed out.
In addition to the core faculty, teachers from other related departments and scientists from various National Institutes/Universities
are also invited for expert lectures. This support has been an asset to maintain the quality of the M.Sc. teaching programme. Students
who have passed so far have been absorbed/engaged in regular services and/or research activities in various reputed institutions like IITR,
CDRI, JNU, NII, ICGEB, NBRI, CIMAP, pharmaceuticals companies and medical colleges along with institutions abroad. The department has well
equipped laboratories with sophisticated instruments like, UV-Vis spectrophotometer, electrophoresis system, PCR, high speed cooling centrifuge,
laminar air flow, autoclave, BOD incubator, orbital shaker incubator, deep freezer, transilluminator, etc. The department has also started
three year B.Sc. course in Biotechnology from session 2021-2022 under NEP.
The vision of the Biotechnology Programme is to establish a progressive center of talent for the Biotechnology
Profession by synergizing the fundamental knowledge, skills, expertise and technologies to drive the transformation
of the biotechnological system in the present era
