The School of Bio Sciences and Technology offers 3 undergraduate programmes in various disciplines of Biotechnology and Bio Sciences. Such as B. Tech. Biotechnology, B.Tech. Bioengineering, & B.Sc. Catering & Hotel, Management and 4 Postgraduate (M.Sc. & M. Tech.) programmes. It also offers M.Tech (Res). & Ph.D. programmes. The syllabus of each of the above programmes covers the latest developments in the respective streams and designed based on market needs so that employability can be improved. The other major priorities include developing entrepreneurship skills and grooming students to become future scientists for the improvement of mankind.
Our efforts are strengthened by collaboration with National and International Universities and multinational companies. Visiting scientists and eminent guest lecturers also serve as knowledge building resources.
Healthy interaction between academia and biotech industry is consistently promoted in the school. Additionally, contract research and commercialization of products development at the university are undertaken as a part of the various programmes.
The School has taken up research programmes in the fields of Microbiology, Medical genetics, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Bioinformatics and other branches of Biomedical Sciences. The School has grown into a major center of higher education and research in the above fields in this part of the world.
An important feature in the academic activity of SBST is its strong linkage with many national institutions such as Central Scientific and Instrument Organization, Chandigarh; Institute of Nuclear Medicine and Allied Sciences, Delhi; Christian Medical College (CMC), Vellore, etc.
Scope for Employment
The School has funded projects from Government departments namely, DBT, DRDO & DST as well as from core industries.
Graduates will have a broad scope in the field of biotechnology. The opportunities are enormous in India and abroad. The field of biotechnology is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years offering opportunities in the field of research, engineering, industry, consultancy, and entrepreneurship.
