Bio Technology

Overview

The Department of Biotechnology is established in the year 2018-19 in B.Tech. Biotechnology affiliated to Anna University, Chennai with an intake of 60 students.. Biotechnology seeks to study Biology from a technological perspective. Biotechnology harnesses cellular and biomolecular processes to develop technologies and products that help improve our lives and the health of our planet. Modern biotechnology provides breakthrough products and technologies to combat debilitating rare diseases, reduce our environmental footprint, feed the hungry, use less and cleaner energy, and have safer, cleaner and more efficient industrial manufacturing processes.

Biotechnology is a multi-disciplinary course and utilizes concepts of Biology and Technology to develop trained professionals for the field of Biotechnology. The syllabus is designed to expose the students to recent exciting developments in the area of Biotechnology and their application in industry, agriculture and medicine.
