B.Tech. Biosciences and Bioengineering:
Biosciences and Bioengineering is a multidisciplinary branch of engineering and sciences developed with an aim to vision to prepare graduates with expertise in engineering with a background of biological sciences. The major goal of this course is to impart knowledge involving a multidisciplinary approach where the students can fulfil the expectations of a large scale of industry related operations as well high-end fundamental research. The curriculum prepares the student for fields with future challenges and intended area of specialization. The departmental faculty strength includes a strong interdisciplinary research and teaching base in biological sciences and biochemical engineering which prepares the student for industry as well as research programs.
This is a four-semester program which is prepared with an aim to impart in-depth knowledge of basic biological sciences with a thrust in engineering aspects based on a multidisciplinary approach. The curriculum covers wide spectrum of subjects like Enzymology, Genetics, Cell Biology, Analytical Biochemistry, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Genetic Engineering, Immunology, Biophysics and Bioinformatics, together with relevant laboratory programs, and a research project leading to a dissertation. In addition, there are provisions of several electives within and outside departments to allow students get an exhaustive training in both biological and technical aspects of this course.
M.Tech. Bioprocess Engineering:
This is a two-year postgraduate program in the department. Bioprocess engineering covers all aspects of bioengineering. The course structure covers applied biology topics like Biochemistry, Microbiology and Molecular Biology and at the same time high end bioengineering topics like bioprocess control, bio separation techniques etc. The course involves one complete year of M.Tech. dissertation involving research linked mainly to biochemical engineering. The course is structured in such a way that it can preparer the students to be suitable for biotechnological/Bioengineering related industries. At the same time the students are encouraged to undertake high end research in the area of biotechnology and biochemical engineering.
The department also offers Ph.D. in varied areas of Biosciences and Bioengineering involving both basic and application orientated research.
