Biotechnology Engineering Course in India

 

“Biotechnology Engineering Course” is a rising order of engineering which is a joint education of engineering and biology for development and research. When e use this technology to study, understand and research & development the Bio-organism, micro-organism, living cell functions and related subjects, we need to have a sound information of technology and biology. Biotechnology Engineering is a blend of chemistry, engineering, genetics, biochemistry and microbiology.

Biotechnology Engineering applies in the field of agriculture, animal husbandry, energy production and pollution control, conservation, eco-conservation, disease research and development and research of vaccines, medicines, fertilisers and insecticides.

Biotechnology Engineering Course Duration

Biotechnology Engineering is a rising and challenging field of engineering & technology.

The academic criterion of Biotechnology Engineering is separated into three courses/programs as follows:

  1. Diploma courses leading to the polytechnic diploma of 3 years  (after 10th or 12th)
  2. UG courses leading to the Tech (Bachelor of Technology) degree of 4 years duration. (after 12th)
  3. PG courses leading to the Tech (Master of Technology) degree of 2 years duration. (after graduation)

In order to enter in PG (M.Tech/M.S/ M.E) program, B.Tech in Biotechnology Engineering is compulsory.

India has the best environment to benefit the research program in the field of Biotechnology Engineering due to a variety of climatically conditions, long coastal line and biggest bio.
