Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology (BSc Biotech)

A bundle of techniques applied to living cells is what we call Biotechnology. Biotechnologists engineer these living cells to produce a particular product of improved quality. Biotechnology is the exploitation of natural resources at the microbial and molecular level to produce a product of improved quality for the benefit of mankind. The work Bio technologists do is in a variety of sectors eg. agriculture, pharmaceuticals, medicine, environment etc.

Most jobs in Biotechnology are research-based and most bio technologists are employed in research and development departments of institutions and industries involved in biotechnological work.  Bio technologists work extensively in the production departments of these industries.

Generally Biotechnology students from engineering stream are given preference for production jobs. Some industries employ bio technologists in their marketing department to develop business in the sector where their product would be most required. Biotechnologists work in industries producing food, chemicals, bio-processed products etc.  They are employed in research establishments working in genetics, biochemistry and biochemical engineering and all areas where these processes are implied.Government labs employ research scientists. The private sector has openings in technical and managerial positions. In academics bio technologists find jobs in departments of marine bio tech, bio medicine, earth sciences, biomedical engineering, agricultural and environmental biotechnology etc.

NIMT prepares individuals who have a deep and genuine interest in discovery science to shape the translation of biotechnology through academic research towards applications for a knowledge economy, business development and science of tomorrow.

The faculty members in the department are actively involved in research in thrust areas such as Nanotechnology, Plant Biotechnology, Animal Biotechnology, Clinical Biochemistry, Cancer Biology, Molecular Biology, Genetic Engineering, Ph.D Scholars are also Pursuing research in these area.

The department has well established laboratories with instruments such as Thermalcycler, ELISA reader, Gel Documentation, Co2 Incubator, Fermentor, Millipore Unit, UV – Vis and Spectrophotometer.


The course BSc Biotech broadly lays emphasis on the following key areas:

  • Biochemistry

amongst others.

Career Prospects

  • Bio technologists largely work in laboratories to conduct scientific research.
  • The work biotechnologists do is in a variety of sectors eg. agriculture, pharmaceuticals, medicine, environment, chemical research, energy management, genetic engineering and industry.
  • The work of Bio technologists is interdisciplinary in nature which requires working together with scientific researchers from disciplines such as microbiology, immunology, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, chemistry, food science, agriculture and engineering with other inputs from managers, economists, politicians, policy makers, legislators etc.
  • In the field of agriculture modern biotechnologists conduct research for improving crop, livestock, forestry and fishery. Their work involves devising biotechnological techniques for increasing productivity, quality, efficient processing and utilization of products with lesser reliance on agro chemicals. The development of bio insecticides, bio-chemicals and tissue culture by bio technologists has almost revolutionized agriculture sciences.
  • Bio technologist’s work in research is related to medical and health care.
  • With the application of Biotechnology pharmaceutical research, development of new vaccines, and diagnostic procedures have evolved.
  • Environmental biotechnology is used for treatment of industrial waste to recycling of sewage and microbial processes using many analytical and diagnostic techniques.
  • Genetic improvement is an extensive area of work encompassing agriculture, animal and human genetics.
