Courses

The department offers a number of courses ranging from 'discipline specific' courses to 'common to all' courses .The specialized course packages offered to B.E. Biotechnology students enables them to diversify to other areas of biotechnology. The students get hands on training to various techniques form the specially designed lab based courses. Electives drawn from different areas of biology, engineering and technology are tailored to the individual student’s interest. This allows students to explore the interdisciplinary areas of biotechnology to compete better in the demanding world.
