About The Course:
This course provides a unique blend of subjects enrich the candidate’s knowledge, creates a highly adaptive environment, and provides opportunities to grow successfully in the respective field.
The Biotechnology curriculum emphasizes on the application of cellular and bio-molecular processes to develop products that help to improve and simplify our lives. It is an interdisciplinary science and involves concepts and theories related to engineering, medicine, biology, chemistry, and technology. It covers topics animal biotechnology, fermentation technology, bioinformatics, spoilage of food, and preservation. Newly developed skills provide a deep understanding of the various uses of biological products in medical devices, diagnostics, resilient crops, biofuels, biomaterials, and pollution control.
The Biochemistry curriculum emphasizes on the study of chemical processes at the molecular level that occur within living systems. It covers subjects related to metabolism, enzymology, microbiology, buffers, molecular biology, cell biology, bioinformatics, biophysical chemistry, recombinant DNA technology, bioenergetics, genetics, virology, developmental biology, immunology, plant biochemistry, neuro-biochemistry, pathology and biochemistry of diseases, and ecological principles.
The Genetics curriculum focuses on the application of biotechnology and microbiology in genes, expression of genes, genetic variation, gene pool, structure and function of genes, and heredity of animals, plants, and human beings. Topics related to molecular structure and function of genes, gene behavior, genetic dominance, epigenetics, inheritance, gene distribution, and variation and change in populations are covered during the course.
Career opportunities are available in government and private pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, biotechnology, and research organizations companies. Potential career roles:
