From the Desk of Incharge  
It is a matter of immense pleasure that the department has matured into a premier resource for the study and is striving hard towards the goal of providing innovative and quality education with high standards to achieve academic excellence. The department has produced 500 graduates and 300 post graduates since its inception in 1997. The department has to its credit 20 Ph.D.s awarded during the last two decades. Apart from this, more than 75 students have qualified CSIR-UGC NET. Students have gained life-turning experience in the department which has enabled them to reach new heights in their professional life. We not only train the students to become excellent scientists, technologists, academicians and analysts, but also help them to mould themselves into better human beings. Today this has been proved by the fact that the students who have tread the paths of this department have achieved fame worldwide.

The department is actively involved to develop long term collaborations with National Dairy Research Institute, Karnal; Central Food Technological Institute, Mysore; University of Slovenia, Gujarat University, Ahmedabad and few others. Recently the department has been identified for deputation of scientists as Visiting Professors for teaching and collaborative research by Pennsylvania State University, USA under RUSA scheme. A proposal to establish this department as Centre of Excellence and strengthen institutional research capacity for promotion of excellence in specific areas of biotechnology is in pipeline.

Famous microbiologist and a great scientist Louis Pasteur quoted:
“Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence.”

The intense technological advances in the field of science have opened up growth opportunities in newer dimensions. Biotechnology provides innovative solutions to medical, environmental and agricultural challenges. The department is involved in active research in the interdisciplinary areas of biotechnology for providing critical solutions and development of products of commercial significance. The main research fields include applied microbiology, microbial technology and molecular biology which provide extensive information to postgraduate students about emerging research areas. We also groom, motivate and expose postgraduate students for comprehensive and in depth practical hands on training in various institutes of international repute which enables them to march along with latest developments. Thus we are confident that our students will emerge as assets not only to this department and to the organization they belong, but also to the country at large.
