About Course

Biotechnology is one of the most revolutionary and beneficial scientific advances of the last quarter century. It is an interdisciplinary science including not only biology but also subjects like mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering and many more. It is also a conglomeration of various combined technologies applied to living cells for production of a particular product or enhancing its quality according to our preferences.

Its application varies from agriculture to industry – food, pharmaceutical, chemical, bio-products, textiles, medicine, nutrition, environmental conservation, animal sciences etc., all this makes it one of the fastest growing fields. Biotechnology combines disciplines like genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, embryology and cell biology, which are in turn linked to practical disciplines like chemical engineering, information technology and robotics.

An individual aspiring for career in Biotechnology should have a scientific aptitude and a keen interest in the biological sciences. Some other aspects like problem solving skills, information technology skill, analyzing and interpreting skills are also essential for a successful career in this field.
