Biotechnology Department

Biotechnology Engineering at G B Pant Engineering College was founded as an academic unit during the academic session 2005-2006, and with the objective of integrating life sciences with engineering to develop cutting-edge technology through research, training and technical innovation. The department at the time of establishment offered only Masters in Biotechnology. The department started B. Tech program during the academic year 2010-2011 that provides a strong foundation in Biotechnology which can lead students to both industry as well as research/academia. The program spans over a period of four years divided into 8 semesters. It also offers a set of core multidisciplinary and specialized elective courses.

In addition, the department also runs M.Tech. Program in Biotechnology with an intake of 18 students. From the academic session 2013-2014 the college started offering Doctoral courses in the same field.

The department has highly qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty to provide both classroom teaching and practical instructions. Apart from fundamental research, the goals of the department are also targeted to meet the demands of the biotechnology based industries. The department has initiated efforts to establish advanced research laboratories in all the thrust areas.
