5-yr Integrated M.Tech.
in Biotechnology

The Master of Technology (M.Tech.) in Biotechnology is a broad programme covering scientific and technological aspects of biotechnology tools and processes for sustainable manufacturing of bioproducts, for industries in healthcare and pharmaceuticals, agriculture, food and feed, environmental remediation, as well as production of platform chemicals and biofuels. The integrated masters-level advanced training program has been designed to create a strong scientific workforce and preparing students for careers in biotechnology research, industry or management, while also offering excellent preparation for further training in doctoral programs.

The program is intended for students who would like to pursue a career in biotechnology without putting 5-7 years commitment in Ph.D or even if intend to pursue PhD can do so in much shorter duration of 2-3 years after M.Tech. The biotechnology, biopharmaceutical and healthcare industries are among the largest in India or abroad with great demand for professionals with deep expertise in research and technological competence. The graduates will have an edge in annual package compared to B.Tech graduates.
