Department of Biotechnology

Biotechnology is technology based on biology - biotechnology harnesses cellular and bio molecular processes to develop technologies and products that help improve our lives and the health of our planet. We have used the biological processes of microorganisms for more than 6,000 years to make useful food products, such as bread and cheese, and to preserve dairy products.

Modern biotechnology provides breakthrough products and technologies to combat debilitating and rare diseases, reduce our environmental footprint, feed the hungry, useless and cleaner energy, and have safer, cleaner and more efficient industrial manufacturing processes.

HIMT is running Department of Biotechnology since 2002. It was founded to impart high quality education in the field of Biotechnology. Currently we are running 13th batch of B.Sc. & 10th batch of M.Sc. in Biotechnology.
