B.Tech. (Biochemical Engineering)

Bachelor of Technology in Biochemical Engineering

Stream Engineering
Course Type Degree
Duration 4 Years

B.Tech. Biochemical Engineering or Bachelor of Technology in Biochemical Engineering is an undergraduate Biochemical Engineering course. Biochemical engineering is a branch of chemical engineering or biological engineering.  Course deals with the design and construction of unit processes that involve biological organisms or molecules, such as bioreactors. Course aims to promote progress in the crucial chemical engineering aspects of the development of biological processes associated with everything from raw materials preparation to product recovery, relevant to industries as diverse as medical/healthcare, food and environmental protection. Its applications are used in the food, feed, and pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and water treatment industries. The course is four years duration and it is career orienting in nature.
