Master of Science in Biotecnology

Stream Science
Course Type Master
Duration 2 Years


Biotechnology is  multidisciplinary in nature and it encompasses several disciplines of basic sciences and engineering. The science disciplines cover Botany, Zoology, Microbiology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Immunology, Tissue Culture, Genetic Engineering, Genomics, Proteomics, Bioinformatics and it leans heavily on process, Chemical and Biochemical Engineering since large scale cultivation of microorganisms and cells, their down stream processing, etc. are based on them. By seeing the ever increasing demand of biotechnology and its business potential there is a pressing need to develop human resource.

 It, also, aims at training manpower in the thrust areas of Biotechnology such as Molecular Biology, Genetic Engineering, Agricultural Biotechnology, Applied Microbiology, Bioinformatics and Bioprocess Technology. More clearly, Biotechnology is a field of applied biology that involves the use of living organisms and bioprocesses in engineering, technology, medicine and other fields requiring bio-products. Biotechnology also utilizes these products for manufacturing purpose. The duration of M.Sc. (Biotechnology) is two years and the syllabus is divided into four semesters.
