Exploring complex living systems including host-microbiome interactions at molecular, cellular, tissue, organ and organism scales requires knowledge of interdisciplinary science and engineering disciplines. Faculty and students of the Department of Biotechnology are working to develop ideas, processes and technologies to find innovative solutions in the areas of drug discovery, biopharmaceuticals, agriculture, food, bioenergy, bioremediation and biomaterials. They are pushing frontiers in bioreactor engineering, nanotechnology, synthetic biology, genome editing, microbiome engineering, single cell multi-omics, biomedical and microfluidic devices such as organ on chip and organoid on chip, 3D bioprinting, bioinformatics and policy action to fulfil the present and future societal needs. The Department of Biotechnology provides students a solid foundation and advances in Biotechnology and its applications.

The Department of Biotechnology  offers M.Tech. Programme in Biotechnology, a four semester, two year, full time programme. It is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi. The sanctioned intake is 18 per year. The M.Tech. Biotechnology Programme is the oldest M.Tech. Programme of the Institute started in 1994. Besides, the Department of Biotechnology also offers Ph.D. Programme in Biotechnology and Ph.D. Programme in Bioinformatics. The faculty members of the Department are academic leaders in their area of expertise with proven research credentials. The Department of Biotechnology has excellent infrastructure including state of the art laboratories.
