Total seats available: 60
Biotechnology is a combination of Biology and Technology, thus bringing together concepts of Biology and Engineering. In simple terms, Biotechnology deals with the modification or enhancement of living organisms according to human purposes. The main aim of this branch of science is the creation of useful products (from living organisms) and enhancement of living organisms which will result in an increase in their value.
Biotechnology syllabus can be classified into two sections- Theory and Practical. In Theory, students will deal with subjects related to Biology as well as concepts of Basic Technology. Practical section is also very important, and students will have to spend a good amount of time in Laboratories, performing practical lessons as well as lab training. At the end of the course, Research Project is also held. Lab activities form a major part of the project. B.Sc Biotechnology course is a 3 years long course. Theory, Practical and Research Project- all these parts have to be dealt with in these 3 years duration. Eligibility criteria for admission in B.Sc Biotechnology (Hons) require completion of 10+2 (PCB) with 50% marks.
