This is an undergraduate course that gives equal emphasis to all the three subjects namely, biotechnology, botany and chemistry. The field of biotechnology is gaining in importance, ever since it has been used in enhancing food production, agriculture and in eradicating diseases. Biotechnology, still a nascent field, has a great future, with more applications to come up. The course is thus gaining in popularity with many undergraduate students opting for it, expecting it to gain in significance in the years to come. The field of botany and chemistry complements biotechnology as biotechnology itself encompasses a wide array of science fields such as, biomedical, biochemistry, bioengineering and so on.
Eligibility and course duration
10+2 in science stream from a recognized school board. Admission to the course is achieved depending upon your marks in 10+2. The course is of 3 years in duration.
More about the course
Biotechnology is a multidisciplinary science field that sees applications of science and engineering on biological sciences. Through the use of biotechnology, living organisms are made use of to obtain a host of products and processes. Biotechnology is seeing rapid advances. Other than the few field mentioned above, biotechnology is branching out into more new fields such as molecular engineering, biomanufacturing, genomics, applied immunology, recombinant gene technology, embryology, etc. Chemistry needs no mention, as it has been central to most scientific applications in biological science. Chemistry helps us to learn of the chemical processes inside cells and tissues that help us keep alive. Chemistry has also extensively contributed in field such as medicine, pharmaceutical engineering, agriculture, fertilizers, food processing and environmental control.
Botany on the other hand deals with everything to do with plants and their scientific study. Studying it, you will come to know of the diversity in the plant kingdom. The field of study is importance in the sense that there is an urgency to safeguard the hundreds of thousand s of plant species. Many among them are threatened with extinction due to environmental changes, rapid industrialization, deforestation and other factors.
Opportunities and scope
You may take up further studies like M.Sc or M.Tech in either of the fields and specialize in it. You may seek employment in industries such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, petrochemicals, polymers, fertilizer and the food processing industry. You may work in labs and get into intensive research. You may seek a career in teaching too.
