  • Graduates will be engineering professionals, innovators or entrepreneurs engaged in technology development, technology deployment, or engineering system implementation in industry
  • Graduates will function in their profession with social awareness and responsibility
  • Graduates will interact with their peers in other disciplines in industry and society and contribute to the economic growth of the country
  • Graduates will be successful in pursuing higher studies in engineering or management
  • Graduates will pursue career paths in teaching or research
  • Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  • Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
  • Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  • Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  • The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  • Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  • Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  • Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  • Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  • Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  • Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
  • Students will be able to acquire fundamental knowledge of biotechnology as well as understand the emerging trends such as computational, engineering and application aspects of the field.
  • Correlate and simulate the state of art technologies and innovations directed for finding sustainable and ethical solutions to issues pertaining to health, environment and agriculture.
  • Innovate, create, manage and lead, research as well as product development projects in biotechnology and related interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary fields that sustainably serves for the growth of academia and industry.

Biotechnology has applications in many industries; professionals can choose to work for a variety of organizations, including government agencies, private companies, regulatory bodies, or clinical laboratories. Biotechnology employers range in size and type from small start-ups to global pharmaceutical leaders to Government-funded organizations

The Biotechnology field—and its careers—span other functional areas that are just as integral in getting a meaningful biotechnology product to market. These areas include:

  • Research and development
  • Quality assurance/regulatory affairs
  • Manufacturing
  • Clinical research
  • Government (policymaking)
  • Software engineering
  • Food, animal, and environmental science
  • Sales and technical support
  • Business management
  • Project management
