Diploma in Biotechnology

Diploma in Biotechnology is an emerging technology. Which involves the knowledge from life sciences along with inputs from the chemical engineering, instrumentation, information technology etc. For the application in agriculture, food industry, Medicine, Pharmaceuticals and bulk chemical industries and environment conservation. The syllabus has been approved by BTE and BIOCON – a major Biotech Industry.

Diploma in Biotechnology is developed from biology. Traditionally, classical biotechnology involves the process and products of fermentation. Nowadays, advance biotechnological processes apply the understanding of cellular and biomolecular processes to solve problems or make products. Students in the Diploma in Biotechnology [DBIO] programme will learn the fundamentals in the biological sciences grounded in the understanding of the natural sciences. It will kindle an understanding of life processes that will reveal what is possible with the knowledge of biology.
