Department of Biotechnology / உயிரி தொழில்நுட்பவியல்

Department of Biotechnology

Biotechnology is a rapidly developing and revolutionary scientific discipline with its roots in biological and technological sciences. Modern biotechnology has a tremendous historical significance. Its emergence on the world scene was predicted at least four decades ago.

Year of Establishment
UG-Biotechnology
:
2001
PG-Biotechnology : 2005
M. Phil-Biotechnology : 2012
Scope of Biotechnology

Today's biotechnology consists of atleast twenty-five areas each area being characterized by the use of a different set of technologies. Some are listed below.

Genetic Engineering: Generically engineered microbes are today widely used for producing drugs and vaccines in large scale at low costs that are of great importance (human insulin, erythropoietin, and hepatitis-B vaccine). For example generically engineered plants that make their own pesticides or are resistant to weedicides - are already in the market.

Gene Therapy is in a way, genetic engineering of humans, which would allow a person suffering from a disabling genetic disorder to lead a normal life.

Tissue Culture of both plant and animal cells. Modern tissue culture technologies allow the multiplication, in the laboratory, of cells isolated from plants and animals. In the cast of plants, one can grow in the lab a whole plant from a single cell.

Department Highlights

The department has produced 148 Master degree holders and 111 Bachelor degree holders. 5 were first Rank holders and 23 Postgraduate University toppers, 10 under graduate toppers. The department shows significant interest in arranging guest lectures from reputed institutes in relevant fields. In connection with the academic activities students are taken toi an industry which gives them a good exposure. We have also singed MOU with CLRI, Chennai, students are undergoing projects.

Teaching Highlights

Teaching aids like OHP, power point, Models, Animated presentations are used to make teaching and learning process interesting and sensible. Students are trained to refer more books, journals and current research articles.

Career Prospects of the course are

The syllabus was designed keeping in mind the competitive job market. The students are intensively trained in the field with regular assessment.

Job Opportunities:

Scientist Scientist Curator Pharmaceutical companies
Agro-based Industries Technical marketing executives Food Industries.
