Department of BioTechnology
The Department of Biotechnology was started in the year 2005 with an intake of 60 seats with AICTE approval.Since its inception the department has been striving to establish as an excellent academic and research ambience. It is situated in a separate Engineering Block (M Block-4 floors) with a total floor area of 10,715 Sq.fts/floor. The laboratories, classrooms and staff rooms are well integrated and provide better interactions among staff & students. Key strengths of the department include nine qualified full time faculty members from different academic backgrounds such as Biotechnology, Life sciences, Chemical Engineering etc.
The Department of Biotechnology is having assistance & guidance from various departments that include Department of Chemical Engineering, Department of Computer Science, Department of Mechanical, Department of EEE etc. The department has full pledged assistance and technological feed back for strengthening the areas of R & D from Osmania University, Hyderabad, HCU, ICRISAT, DRR,APAU etc.
The focus of the department is presently on training the students in various theoretical and practical aspects of biotechnology which includes the practices of Genetic Engineering, Bioprocess Engineering, Biochemistry,Microbiology, Mass transfer operations, Bio-informatics etc. At the same time department also encourages the faculty to carry out research work in the department.
The 4 year graduate program is aimed at inculcating research orientation in the students on the broad range of active research areas conducted by faculty members in the department. The department has art of the best laboratory facilitates in the fields of Genetic Engineering, Microbiology, Immunology, Bioprocess Engineering, Biochemistry, Bioinformatics and other associated Engineering fields. The Biotechnology laboratories are planned in a spacious 1155 Sq.ft /lab.
In addition to the formal education with an intensive practical exposure, the inherent talents of the students are explored and strengthened through regular counseling and personality development sessions, to improve the visualization, presentation capabilities, communication skills and leadership qualities etc. Students are encouraged and guided to conduct and present papers, attend workshops and seminars to get them acquainted with the latest and recent trends in science and technology.
