Course overview:-The term Biotechnology was first used by KARL EREKY in 1919.Biotechnology is the branch of applied sciencein which we use living organism for creating different products (like Genetically modified crops, Genetically modified organisms, Therapeutic products, Biofuels, Pharmaceutical products etc.)
Biotechnology is the vast field that covers all the aspects of Life Science (Genetics,Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Enzymology, Plant Tissue Culture, Animal Tissue Culture, Pharmaceutical, Bioinformatics, and Microbiology etc.).Subject is designed to make a life of aperson easy. In ancient time when we know about only biology it is not possible to maintain Quality and Quantity in single species but with the introduction of Biotechnology now Quality and Quantity is maintained in single species. It’s all because of genetic manipulations and developments.
Eligibility criteria for under graduate course :
- Candidate must have passed class 12th or senior secondary examination with at least 50% marks.
- The 12th examination must be passed/Appearing with group combination of Biology, Chemistry, Physics as a subject.
The domain on which a trained Biotechnologist can work is vast. As there are several disciplines involved in biotechnology, there is a great demand for experts in various industries.
Biotechnological applications are used widely in the following industries:
- Animal husbandry
- Genetic engineering
- Environmental conservation
- Soil biology
- Textile industry
- Software Industries
- Clinical Biology
Biotechnologists can find jobs in both private and government undertakings with specializations in different sub-disciplines.
Biotechnologists can work for various organizations/industries under these positions:
- Medical scientists
- Biological technicians
- Medical and Clinical Lab Technologists & Technicians
- Biochemists and Biophysicists
- Biomedical Engineers
- R&D and Process Development Scientists Biomanufacturing Specialists
- Bioproduction Operators
- DRDO Scientist
- Scientific officer
- Product specialist manager
- Clinical data analyst
These are few areas and job positions for Biotechnology students there are several other opportunities for students such as entrepreneur like Kiran Mujaumdar Shah.
