BSc Biotechnology

B.Sc. Biotechnology

Biotechnology has become the latest sunrise in the Indian as well as World economy, as it is fast gaining around to be at par with the information technology sector. Biotechnology is often referred to genetic engineering technology of the 21st century; however, the term encompasses a wider range and history of procedures for modifying biological organisms according to the needs of humanity, going back to initial modifications of native plants into improved food crops through artificial selection and hybridization. Bio-Technology is a research oriented science, a combination of Biology and Technology. It covers a wide variety of subjects like Genetics, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Immunology, Virology, Chemistry and Engineering and is also concerned with many other subjects like Health and Medicine, Agriculture and Animal Husbandry, Cropping system and Crop Management, Ecology, Cell Biology, Soil science and Soil Conservation, Bio-statistics, Plant Physiology, Seed Technology etc. Bio-Technology is the use of living things, especially cells and bacteria in industrial process.

Job Opportunities: Pharmaceutical companies, Agriculture oriented companies, Genetic engineering Cloning Medicine producing companies Chemical industries Research works on various fields related to agriculture, crops, drugs, etc Animal husbandry Health care Drug Inspector, Food Inspector Drug and Pharmaceutical research, Environment control, Waste management, Energy, Food processing & Bio-Processing Industries, Tanning Industries. etc
