More about the course
This undergraduate engineering course in biotechnology focuses on the engineering aspects of biotechnology along with the biological sciences. The course of study encompasses engineering subjects like Biochemistry, Bioprocess Principles, Biophysics, Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics and Mass Transfer. Topics on biological sciences are Enzyme Technology, Genetics, Cytogenetics, Immunology, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, etc. This course helps you in understanding diseases, the reasons for their occurrence and the treatment against them. You understand the role played by biotechnology in improving agricultural production, in removing plant diseases and in manufacturing eco-friendly fertilizers, pesticides and so on. Protecting the environment, conserving our natural resources and pollution control are some more aspects, the field of biotechnology is taking care of.
A good many number of jobs in this field are in research and development work in areas such as molecular biology, microbiology, genetics, food production, understanding diseases and finding cure against them and bringing development in the field of agriculture. For getting into a research based job one will have to however, go for postgraduate courses in biotechnology like M.E./M.Tech and then P.hD. Other than research based jobs one can get into industrial production of drugs, vaccines, pharmaceutical products, pesticides, fertilizers, biofuels, etc. by applying biochemical processes. Since it is comparatively a new field, the best openings in this field are abroad. Most of the research based jobs and research activities are concentrated in the western countries. Another good option is to go for an academic career.
