Engineering

Course Detail for Engineering

“Biotechnology Engineering” is an emerging discipline of engineering which is a combined education of engineering and biology for research & development.

In other logical words, Biotechnology = Biology + Technology,

When we use the technology to understand, study, and research & development the Bio-organism, micro-organism, living cell functions and related subjects, we need to have a sound knowledge of technology and biology.

Biotechnology Engineering is the best course to equip a student for this field.

Biotechnology Engineering is a combination of engineering, chemistry, genetics, bio-chemistry and microbiology.

Biotechnology Engineering applies in the field of animal husbandry, agriculture, energy production and conservation, pollution control, disease research, eco-conservation, and research and development of medicines, vaccines, fertilizers and insecticides.

“Biotechnology Engineering is a part of engineering that involves the technology and biological science for development in the field of medical, agriculture, security and bio-research”.

The credit for the development of the “Antibiotics” goes to the biotechnology.

Brewing was the earlier application of the biotechnology. The great biologist Louis Pasteur had discovered the fermentation in 1857 and that was the first step in the field of biotechnology.

Biotechnology Engineering Course Detail:

Course & Duration

Biotechnology Engineering is an emerging and demanding field of engineering & technology.

In the course curriculum of Biotechnology Engineering, the students will get to use the engineering expertise to solve the problems and analyses in medicine and biology, agriculture and research, and development of vaccines.

For doing Biotechnology Engineering, you need to have the mathematics, chemistry, biology in 10+2 standard.

After completion of UG degree the students are designated as the Bachelor of ScienceBachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Technology, depending on the University.

A bachelor degree usually covers the mathematics, biology, chemistry and computer.

You can choose the Biotechnology Engineering, once you have completed your 10 or 10+2 examination with mathematics and science.

The academic criterion of Biotechnology Engineering is divided into three courses/programmes as follows:

  1. Diploma courses leading to the polytechnic diploma of 3 years duration. (after 10th or 12th)
  2. UG courses leading to the B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) degree of 4 years duration. (after 12th)
  3. PG courses leading to the M.Tech (Master of Technology) degree of 2 years duration. (after graduation)

Beside these, it is a growing discipline in research fields leading to the PhD (Doctor of Philosophy)degree.

For entering in PG (M.Tech/M.E/M.S) programme, B.Tech in Biotechnology Engineering is must.

India has the best environment to advantage the research programme in the field of Biotechnology Engineering due to various climatically conditions, long coastal line and largest biodiversity.

The subjects that are involved in biotechnology are Mathematics, Applied Sciences, Computer Applications, Engineering, Genetics and Agriculture.

Admission Detail

Students are admitted in undergraduate and postgraduate engineering courses in the field of biotechnology through entrance exam. The entrance exams are conducted at national level, state level and University level.

For admission to B.Tech/B.E. courses, you have to apply for JEE Main which is the national level entrance exam and conducted by CBSE. Admission into IITs & NITs is done through JEE Advanced which is the second stage of JEE Main. Besides this, the other popular entrance exams are AP EAMCET, TS EAMCET, VITEEE, KCET and many more.

Those wishing to take admission in M.Tech/M.E. courses are required to apply for GATE. It is the perfect gateway for admission to IITs and NITs for pursuing postgraduate engineering courses.

Here, we are listing some best colleges for pursuing biotechnology engineering:

  • Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee
  • Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi
  • Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati
